A running short that incorporates a merino compression tight
Developing our first running shorts was relatively easy. We knew we wanted to incorporate superfine merino wool into the short so that you always feel comfortable and decided the best way to do this was to create our own bespoke stretch merino fabric and create a semi compression short running tight.
This bespoke fabric is constructed so that the merino element is always next to the skin and this keeps you warm when it’s cold but cool when it’s warm and is the only fabric that is capable of doing this. It means you can wear these running shorts on many more weather conditions than a regular synthetic short or tight and are ideal for hot summer running as well as freezing conditions.
We selected a superfine merino wool from Australia as this is the finest grade merino you can get and eliminated the “Prickle” feel you sometimes get with lower grade merino wool or other wool yarns.
Being a natural yarn, merino cannot hold onto bacteria that causes the nasty smells synthetics have after a while which means these running shorts will last for years and years and still smell as fresh as the day you bought them. Stretch was added to gently compress the thigh muscle to help maintain your performance on the run and also give a great fit along with the minimal flatlocked seams that eliminates chafing.
An ultra lightweight microfibre stretch over-short is integrated at the waistband and offers some added style and modesty with a functional zipped rear pocket for your i-phone and precision laser cut ventilation on the front panels.
