Our company name is derived from 98 point 6 degrees fahrenheit (the body’s optimal body temperature), and reinforces the benefits of maintaining optimum performance through the fantastic temperature stabilizing properties of point6 merino wool.

Optimum body temperature is essential for comfort and performance, and particularly during activities that include wide ranges in temperature. Mother nature has created a fiber with an excellent inherent ability to increase natural thermoregulation - merino wool. The crimp in merino wool fibers create efficient insulation that keeps you warm when it's cold, and cool when it's warm. Unlike cotton or synthetics, it's these layers and layers of air pockets that help wool insulate - and keep you warm - even when wet. Merino wool fibers feature a complex moisture management system, able to both repel and absorb moisture, keeping feet dry, comfortable and blister-free.
