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.
