The Onion Layer principle
Based on the body's own natural cooling process, functional underwear and breathable outerwear ensure that perspiration is effectively transported away from the skin to the next layer of clothing. Synthetic fibres and pure new wool absorb moisture, which turns to steam as it leaves the body. This gives the wearer a feeling of comfort, despite physical activity. Several layers of functional clothing can be flexibly combined, depending on outside temperature and the personal perception of cold. Choose a weatherproof sailing jacket or trousers for the outer layer, fleece and synthetic fibre material for the middle layer. In order for moisture to be effectively absorbed by the material, the base layer should fit snuggly to the skin. SVB offers functional underwear with a tailored cut for women.

Thermal underwear: Material, thermal insulation and odour development
Functional underwear is made of polyester fabric or natural merino wool. Technical shirts often contain several fabric types or material thicknesses depending on the body zones. Functional underwear made of polyester is fast drying, light and very breathable. It is recommended for activities that are physically demanding. Disadvantage: Odour development.
New wool, on the other hand, is very warming and odourless. Functional underwear made of Merino is well suited for longer sailing trips or longer activities, such as hiking or cycling, even if a washing machine is not always immediately available.

Merino washing: care, washing and drying
Natural products such as new wool from Merino sheep have a reputation of being difficult to care for. Compared to conventional wool or down, however, Merino wool is very easy to care for and wash. Always follow the instructions on your label! As a general rule, machine wash at 30 - 40° using a normal washing cycle. If possible, use a PH-neutral detergent or wool detergent and NO fabric softener. Do NOT dry Merino products in the dryer, but on a line or lay flat to keep their shape for a long time.
