Woolpower LITE is Woolpower's thinnest fabric. It is a cool and comfortable material that is best worn nearest the body. LITE is tight knitted and therefore cooler, even though it actually contains more wool than undergarments made of Ullfrotté Original. LITE is good for using in slightly warmer conditions, as the fabric helps to cool down your body. But it also keeps you warm when itís cold out.
So far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The garment doesnít smell bad if you sweat, for example. It also keeps you dry if you get wet as the wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight in moisture without even feeling damp. But if you really get wet, the clothes will keep you warm anyway. Itís because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat. Woolpower can be washed at 60 degrees.
LITE is sewn by seamstresses in Östersund, but the fabric is knitted in NorrkÖping before that. Their seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to end and move with it between the machines. When the garment is ready, they sew their own nametag into it. Thatís why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower undergarment. Merino wool 80%Polyamide 20%

  • Woolpower LITE is a cool year-round layer that can be worn next to the skin. It keeps you warm when itís cold and cool when itís warm.
  • The fabric used in the LITE range is knitted in NorrkÖping and then sewn by seamstresses in Östersund.
  • The seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to finish, and mark the clothes they sew with their own nametag.
  • No other man-made fabric has all the great qualities of wool.
  • They take wool from merino sheep that graze in the Argentinian part of Patagonia and Uruguay, and it is mulesing free.
  • The fabric doesnít smell bad if you sweat. Wool is self-cleaning and breaks down the bad-smelling bacteria from the skin. Thatís why it doesnít need to be washed so often.
  • Wool fibres can absorb up to 30 per cent of their own weight in moisture before even feeling damp.
  • Even if the material gets damp it continues to keep you warm anyway.
  • Woolpower clothes can be washed at 60 degrees.
  • Woolpowerís undergarments donít itch and feel soft and comfortable against your skin.
