What is Merino Wool?

Merino wool is a natural product and a particularly high quality form of  (Virgin) wool. It is obtained from merino sheep and is characterised by its special delicacy and softness.

The main properties and advantages of Merino:

  • Doesn't smell (even after long wear) and therefore has to be washed less often
  • Is sustainable and grows back
  • Does not charge electrostatically (unlike synthetic materials)
  • Insulates well in cold and also in heat
  • Transports moisture
  • Can absorb up to a third of their dry weight in moisture without feeling clammy
  • Cools through evaporative cooling at warm temperatures
  • Insulates even when damp
  • Maintains the fit without becoming misshapen
  • Has a natural sun protection factor of up to 50 (depending on density and weave)
  • Is biodegradable (like wool in general)

99% of today's dog harnesses are made from synthetic materials, including crude oil. And although these fabrics have many advantages, like the air mesh from curli, there are unfortunately disadvantages as well. The biggest advantage though is that they are cheap, easy to manufacture and easy to colour.

The biggest disadvantage -  besides the fact that they are made from crude oil - is the smell development. If the fabrics are used  regularly, they will start to smell, depending on the wearer's evaporation and moisture. That’s where organic materials have a clear advantage. For example, wool has natural protection against the development of odours. But where does the smell come from? Moisture and salts on the hardware are optimal for bacteria, which begin to decompose the moisture and salts. This creates unpleasant smells. Because of its special fiber shape and composition wool - and especially merino wool - is better protected against the accumulation of moisture and salts than synthetic materials.

That is why it was the perfect material for the new Merli harness from curli. They show a significant reduction in odour. Another advantage of the organic material is that it does not become electrostatically charged. This has the great advantage that the dog hair does not stand up and get caught in the air mesh and knot through the movement. A pleasant advantage for all dogs with fine, soft and beautiful fur. The reason for this is the lower conductivity of wool compared to synthetic fabrics. These are easier to charge electrostatically when there is friction.

And last but not least, wool is a renewable, organic raw material. And with the right shearing technique, the sheep also feels comfortable. Animal welfare is always one of the most important factors for Curli and we make sure that the merino wool comes from a producer whose wool is certified and inspected.

For the new merino harness, we were able to reduce the proportion of synthetic fabrics by up to 50% by using 87% merino wool for the inner lining.
