Aclima 230g HotWool Long Pants
Aclima HotWool Unisex Pants (leggings), part of the Aclima HotWool range, are made using cosy terry wool that has been developed to offer great comfort and warmth on the coldest days.
Terry wool is a mixture in which merino wool is the main component blended with technical fibres to make the garment thicker and more durable. It can also be machine washed at 60°C! The terry loops on the inside of Aclima HotWool help lock in vital body heat. This is what helps maintain steady body temperature and simultaneously makes you feel comfortable wearing it.
Since it is also naturally flame retardant, this quality is chosen both by the Norwegian and Swedish army.
Our Aclima Lars Monsen Anarjohka Long Pants (leggings) are an alternative option offering rib knitted sides for a better fit.
Material: 230g Wool Blend/Ullfrotte

Wool is a natural “high-tec” fibre and possesses a number of advantages, such as its ability to uptake and release moisture vapour up to 36% of its dry weight, while being water-repellent at the same time. Wool is a renewable resource, as you wait till the wool has grown back and then cut it again. It is also biodegradable because the hair is made up of proteins, which are yummy treats for insects and microbes.
