TIROLWOOL® is made from mountain sheep raised in South Tyrol. Their wool has been used to make warm clothing for centuries, as worn by the early pioneers of alpinism. Tyrolean mountain sheep live at 2,000 metres all-year round in harsh conditions where normal sheep could not survive. Their fine white fleece is well known for its outstanding warmth, breathability, thermo regulation and insulation even when wet.
By choosing to source local Tyrolean wool, SALEWA is sustainably reducing transportation – a major contributor of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions that impact on the climate. In addition, local sourcing supports mountain sheep farmers and the regional economy. TIROLWOOL® is chlorine free: wastewater from the wool-chlorination process contains high concentrations of chlorinated chemicals.
TIROLWOOL® offers natural insulation and keeps the skin warm and dry by absorbing moisture vapour and transforming it into heat. It also reduces moisture accumulation and increases moisture transmission in cold conditions, preventing overchilling.
Mountain rescue professionals say they prefer wool clothing because of its functional properties and comfort for the extreme temperature differences and long hours involved during high-alpine work.
