We exclusively use compact spun merino wool in all our products.
Compact spinning greatly reduces loose fibers for more durable merino products without excessive wear or pilling. Compact spinning also reduces more air from between the fibers, creating a more compact yarn with a much softer feel. More merino. Less problems.
You might have noticed that we’re obsessed with our lifetime guarantee. Using compact spun makes our merino wool 25% more durable than ring spun yarn and helps us feel confident that our socks will meet any challenge. Guaranteed.
Not all merino is created equal.
Don’t be fooled by a label. There is a huge range in the quality of merino wool out there. Point6 has spent over 20 years perfecting merino wool products. In fact, we have mastered merino wool. The result is high-performance merino wool products whose quality, durability and comfort are unmatched, guaranteed.
