Full zip jacket has a high, double thick collar as well as cuffs with thumb holes. The back is longer to prevent gaps.
Full Zip Jacket 600 is the thickest mid-layer made from our own Ullfrotté Original 600 gram fabric. Full Zip Jacket 600 is good for colder conditions or when you don’t plan to move about too much. It can be worn under a wind or water repellent outer layer. Underneath, wear one of our thinner undergarments, such as Woolpower LITE or Ullfrotté 200, which have been designed for wearing nearest your body. By wearing Woolpower directly against your skin you’ll benefit most from merino wool’s qualities.
Full Zip Jacket 600 can also be worn as a cardigan or jacket over your normal daily clothes. The jacket is slightly longer at the back to avoid gaps and the cuffs have a useful thumbhole. It has a high, reinforced collar.
The fabric is hardwearing and made of fine merino wool, polyamide and most of all – air. The air in the fabric is really important as it insulates the heat that your body produces.
The clothes are manufactured entirely in Östersund, Jämtland from the yarn to the finished product. Our seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to end and move with it between the machines. When they are done and satisfied with the result, they sew their own nametag into the garment. That’s why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower jacket.
Wool is nature’s own functional fabric and so far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The fabric doesn’t smell bad if you sweat, for example. What’s more, it keeps you dry as the wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight in moisture without even feeling damp. But if you really get wet, the jacket keeps you warm anyway. It’s because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat. Ullfrotté Original can be washed at 60 degrees.
