A word from our sponsor:

Icebreaker

Each year we procure the best merino wool in the world, directly from the best growers in the world, up high in the very pure Southern Alps of New Zealand. If the fibre didn't work, the animals would die every time it snowed. But it does, and they don't.

From there our hand-picked pure merino goes in search of the best technology, ethical manufacturing and environmentally sound practices before it completes its transformation into a hand-made Icebreaker.

And then, maybe you saw it and discovered it for yourself. Will you do something extraordinary in yours? We believe in dreams, and in the human spirit.

Put together, it all makes common sense; a natural high-performance clothing system and a fresh set of ideas based on respect for nature, ethics and sustainability.
