Your Choice Of Clothing Should Be SmartWool
Remember grandma’s wool scarf she made and gave to you and when you wrapped it around your neck, you began to itch. Well, SmartWool will give you all the good benefits that wool can without the itch. Smart Wool has combined their prevailing technology and the natural sheep’s wool together to give you the best feeling wool products to wear next to your skin. So soft and comfortable you would not think it is wool.

You will love the smooth feel of SmartWool clothing year round, yes, year round. Because of wools natural fiber characteristics of being odor free and its ability to breathe and regulate body temperature, you will like to wear it year round. It is nature’s renewable resource. The health benefits that make it a smart choice of clothing is that it moves moisture off the skin before it liquefies and that keeps bacteria from forming. Wearing SmartWool products benefit you health wise and a benefit to the environment.

Icebraker uses wool that comes from a sheep breed in New Zealand called merino, so it costs much less to manufacture than fossil fuel. It is a great way to go green, keep warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Allergies to wool is rare and if experienced, it is usually comes from the lanolin on the fiber. Another good reason to wear wool is its flame retardant properties. Wool has UV properties that make it hard to ignite and burn and it will not melt because it is a natural fiber not a synthetic oil based fiber.

SmartWool is a unique wool product that is shrink resistant and easy to care for. Many SmartWool items can be machine washed using a gentle wash cycle with cool to lukewarm water. The socks and underwear can be machine dried with wrong side out. Sweaters can be machine washed then laid flat to dry on a sweater rack. Another plus for SmartWool products is the durability. Wool wears well and stays crisp looking as long as you take care of it properly.

If you love to ski or hike the mountains in the winter then your wardrobe should include socks, scarves, and sweaters, not to mention your underwear from the SmartWool Company. You will enjoy the soft feel of wool and the warmth and protection it gives you from the cold climate in the mountains. After all, being warm and dry is half the fun of a winter sport.

Icebreaker Vs Smart Wool

As of today, it is the start of winter. So, how are you going to keep warm? There are a variety of styles and fabrics you can choose from. You could try fleece, cashmere, and cotton to name a few. Or, you could try wool. Yes, wool. It’s not as bad as it sounds. Wool can be just as soft as a baby’s blanket. It can keep you warm throughout the winter. No matter what you do. There are two brand name manufacturers that make the softest, warmest wool alive. One I’m familiar with – Icebreaker, and Smart Wool.

Icebreaker is made from 100% pure New Zealand merino wool. It is totally natural and soft. It’s probably the softest wool that you will ever find. Plus, you could throw this in the washing machine. Icebreaker has been used for a lot of winter sports, including skiing and snowboarding. I personally have used it myself. It keeps me warm, especially on those below temperature days. I wear it whenever I hunt. You can’t even tell that it’s wool! It feels just like cotton.

Smart Wool is a clothing and socks company that is very popular among people. They’re another top seller when it comes to warm and comfortable wool. Like Icebreaker, Smart Wool is also worn for outdoor winter sports. They also claim that it’s the softest fabric that you will ever find. It has a lot of benefits including temperature regulation, breathability, is odor-free, and naturally renewable. None of Smart Wool’s products will shrink or itch. They’re fully functional for all year long and are completely durable. Smart Wool also can test your body temperature, has natural fibers, is hypoallergenic, and is naturally flame retardant. It’s perfect for anyone in your family, even your kids! Smart Wool does seem to be as technologically advanced as Icebreaker. You can even throw them in the wash or wash them by hand.

Even though I’m prone to Icebreaker, you should check out the testimonials for Smart Wool. There seems to be a lot of happy people that wear them. Smart Wool is technological and family friend whereas Icebreaker is more for the serious athlete. Obviously, they both have their good and their bad. No matter what you choose, you will be warm and comfy with either of these products.

Of course you can find out more about Icebreaker and Smart Wool at their official web sites. You will find out more information on their material, fit, and product information. Make a smart choice this winter with the warmest, softest wool on the planet. Try on Smart Wool or Icebreaker, or both! Don’t be afraid to try both. You may never know what you personally like.

Camp Chairs

When camping in the outdoors, you forfeit several luxuries such as electricity, proper bathroom facilities and the comfort of a bed to sleep in. There are ways that campers substitute these amenities. Some use generators for lighting or cooking. Often campers may be forced to go to the bathroom in the woods. Every camper is familiar with using a sleeping bag at night. There are luxuries, however, that you can take with you; one of these is a camping chair. This is not like a wooden chair that you have lying around the house. Proper camping chairs are usually made from a waterproof material, easy to carry and comfortable to sit in. It is important when shopping for a camp chair that you look for something you will be able to use for a long time, preferably passing it down to your kids when they are older. The best camp chairs are not cheap though; these durable materials used to produce them do not come at a low cost for the manufacturer. This is a purchase you should not skimp on though as comfort in the middle of the woods is hard to come by. Go with a company that has a long history in making camping gear. Camp chairs should be a purchase you only have to make once, make the right choice.

There is a multitude of ways that people are making the earth better; recycling, using energy efficient appliances, carpooling, etc. But for shoppers, in what kind of way can they make their contribution? Sure, everyone passes down or donates what they do not want or need, but in the end some of this just ends up just being waste. Why is that?
