In 1994, 24-year-old marketing graduate Jeremy Moon was introduced to a New Zealand merino sheep farmer. Shortly after that meeting he put together an ambitious business plan to develop the world's first merino layering system for the outdoors, and creating a global business in the process.

Icebreaker clothing is made from merino wool grown in New Zealand's Southern Alps, where the weather can be extreme. Merino wool isn't manufactured in a lab, it's grown in harsh elements. This isn't your grandma's wool blanket, merino wool is extremely soft and comfortable to the touch. It breathes naturally, wicks moisture away from your skin and resists odors. Take a look at some of our favorites.
