Armadillo Merino to show Merino products at Workwear show

The annual Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show which takes place on the 17th-18th April this year at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry is used to showcasing the very latest high-tech manmade fibres and materials but this year, Armadillo Merino will be demonstrating how Mother Nature can work wonders in helping to protect the workforce.

Armadillo Merino uses superfine wool from hardy, Merino Sheep in its next to skin protective clothing range to provide professional risk takers including the military, police, fire, ambulance service and heavy industries with superior protection, performance and comfort.

Merino wool harnesses its unique characteristics to deliver high quality safety workwear garments that are both soft and very strong which when combined with contoured styling provides a superior next-to-skin fit.

Andy Caughey, managing director of Armadillo Merino, explained: “Wool has been regarded for centuries by soldiers and workmen as the best performing protective layer against the skin. Merino wool has a natural breathability helping to reduce over-heating as well as providing warmth when worn as an insulating layer, with the added benefit of not generating odour, so garments can be worn for days at a time without the need for washing.

“The wool has natural flame retardant properties with a high ignition temperature of between 570°C and 600°C, making it ideal for a wide cross section of industries including the emergency services and the military.

“We recognise the importance of protection, performance and comfort for professional risk takers so our role at Armadillo Merino is to develop garment styles that help meet their specific demands. We also work with companies and organisations to design tailor-made garments using merino fabrics that best meet more specialised industry requirements”.

Merino Sheep are renowned throughout the world for their fine, soft wool and their ability to thrive in extreme conditions. Despite huge technological advances in synthetic fibres, wool is still the world's most technical performance fibre with its complex protein structure giving it unique qualities that are unsurpassed by manmade materials.

Armadillo Merino recognises the heritage of merino wool and harnesses its natural advantages to create modern day performance fabrics for the ultimate in enhanced protection, performance and comfort in demanding environments. Using different grades of merino wool combined with technical knit structures, the company has developed a new generation of personal protective clothing.

Andy Caughey added: “The Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the sector and we are very much looking forward to demonstrating the effectiveness of merino wool and demonstrating its superior qualities over and above synthetic fibres."
