Helping grow the popularity of Merino in the outdoor industry, NJ-based Concept III Textiles joined forces with Australian Merino State, a division of Charles Parsons & Co. two years ago to introduce their fine micron premium textile collection to the outdoor industry in the U.S. and Canada.

The company will now also work with Euro customers to develop Merino State performance Merinos and innovative Merino blends out of their North Yorkshire, UK office.

More New Merino Blends Concept III and Merino State have targeted the outdoor industry with engineered performance Merino blends that deliver the best attributes of both the fine micron Merino and the best attributes of the organic or synthetic paired component.

Though 100% Merino in fine micron knits have led the resurgence of wool in the active outdoor market, Merino State’s new blends broaden the function, design and merchandising possibilities for outdoor brands.

With the addition of their MST Technology using exclusive new finishing equipment that can impart a cool hand and soft luster to the blends, the new fabrics are truly unique to Merino State.

New for 2013/14 are:

Merino State Intimates: The silky touch of modal and Tencel combined with the warmth and comfort of Merino. Available in textured jacquard designs, these new soft blends bring a feminine new look to base layers.

M-Fleece - Poly/Merino Super Fleece: A hard wearing polyester jersey face with a super warm and ultra soft brushed back. Mix and match yarn colors for great tonal and heather effects.  An economical and functional yet luxurious blend.

Vintage Organics: The classic combination of fine micron Merino and organic cotton combines the comfort and advantages of both superior, sustainable fibers. The casualness of cotton and sophistication of Merino.

BiComponent Merino: The natural composition of Merino removes moisture vapor before it condenses and forms droplets of water. In extreme exertion where water accumulation is unavoidable however, the addition of synthetic fibers assures that the excess moisture is whisked away.

ThermoCool: New ThermoCool thermal regulator with its hybrid fiber mix provides evaporative cooling and/or thermo-buffering functions as needed by the body.  Coupled with Merino State’s, fine micron Merino with its natural ability to adapt to the body’s warming and cooling needs, ThermoCool Merino has provides an advanced performance story.
