Woolpower® is a collection of garments for the entire body that can be combined in different ways depending on temperature and activity. Woolpower® garments are made from Ullfrotte Original material. Everything is made in the factory in Östersund. Material comes in various weights, each of which has a different function and advantage. Woolpower® garments are available in 200, 400, 600 och 800 g/m².
WOOLPOWER WAS FOUNDED IN ÖSTERSUND, SWEDEN IN 1969
The company was founded to produce nylon stockings. In the early 1970s, Ullfrotté Original was developed in collaboration with the Swedish military. The first Ullfrotté garments were produced in 1972.
Woolpower is fully committed to the production of warm undergarments and mid-layer clothing sold under the brand name Woolpower. The company employs about 70 people and the entire production is in Östersund, in the northern part of Sweden. Approximately 80% of the sales are exported to about 25 countries all over the world.
BASE LAYER GARMENTS
The thinner base layer undergarments are designed to be worn directly against the skin as a moisture wicking base layer. They work best when worn closest to the body, since the material keeps the body warm, while at the same time helping to transport perspiration. The thinnest undergarments are ideal at temperatures ranging from +10 °C (50 °F) down to -20 °C (-4 °F), depending on activity.
MID LAYER GARMENTS
These thicker garments are used as intermediate layers to increase heat insulation between the base layer and the wind and water resistant outer layer. The mid-layer garments are usually used at lower temperatures and lower activity levels.
Woolpower recently introduced a brand new material, Woolpower LITE, to fill the need for a thinner base layer.
Function is still the main focus. There are no more seams than are absolutely necessary. The material is very soft, smooth and stretchy, and it does not smell.
The new material still provides insulation, but more importantly its merino wool adapts to temperature and activity level.
Woolpower LITE is constructed with a rib knit and is made with 80% merino wool (superfine, 19.5 micron). The merino wool is combined with 20% of synthetic, polyamide fiber, to create a stronger and more durable garment.
The terry-knitted material has excellent heat-insulating properties and warms even when wet, a crucial factor for feet. The socks absorb and transport away perspiration without losing heat-insulating properties.
Socks are available in five thicknesses: Liner, 200, 400, 600 and 800 g/m². The socks can be combined in various ways depending on the temperature and form of activity.
The garments will fit both men and women. To find out which size will fit you best, use our size guide! Click on the link below and the size guide will open in a new window.
