Finest merino wool & ultimate comfort in Norwegian design
Merino wool is extremely popular thanks to its natural thermoregulation and odour control. In addition to our simple NATURAL 100% Merino Warm functional underwear, which, as the name suggests, is made of 100% merino wool, ODLO has created the Natural Kinship line, a trendy functional underwear which perfects the mix of merino wool with synthetic fibres. With Natural Kinship you don't have to sacrifice function and still look stylish!
THE MIX OF THE MATERIALS IS THE KEY
Made for those who like to wear natural materials on their skin during sports without having to sacrifice function. For this purpose we have increased the merino wool content in our Kinship styles to over 50%. So you benefit from the high warmth and climate-regulating function of the super fine merino wool in combination with the moisture-wicking properties of polyester. With our seamless knitting technology, we have placed the various functional zones in such a way that they keep your body particularly warm where it needs it and areas that are less temperature-sensitive are designed in such a way that excess heat can escape there. In addition, there are elastic material zones that allow you full freedom of movement.
NATURAL KINSHIP COMBINES TRADITION WITH MODERNITY
Our material specialists have perfected the mix of merino wool with synthetic fibres, but we have retained the independent look of the Natural Kinship series. Our designers have been inspired by the rich culture of Norway - the home of Odlo - and translated the traditional patterns into a modern design language that fits perfectly into our modern world. The result is an authentic appearance with a high recognition value that perfectly matches the use of natural materials, which we specifically combine with synthetic fibres. With the cuddly warm baselayer you are just as well equipped on the slopes as you are on the cross-country ski run or on a winter hike. And in the hut or even in everyday life, you can always be seen with the great look, even without an overlay.
The Natural Kinship series is available as a long sleeved shirt with round neck, as a long-sleeved shirt with hood and as a long-sleeved shirt with high collar and half-length zipper. Our long Natural+ Kinship base-layer pants go perfectly with all tops. Made of the same material, also seamlessly knitted and with convincing warmth performance and very pleasant climate management.
