NEW for ‘21 - AXIO premium wool-poly balanced fabric.
Throughout the 2020 lockdown, Beringia collaborated with Masters of Bishu, Japan to design an exclusive hybrid fabric that would bring together the best qualities of merino wool and recycled polyester.
The result of that effort was AXIO - the most advanced natural-technical ultralight fabric in the world.
Coming in at a featherweight 135g/m, AXIO yarn begins from a single thread of polyester formed with a spiral, rather than round, cross-section. Superfine 17.5 micron Tasmanian merino wool fiber is then wrapped around the polyester thread such that the poly never protrudes beyond the yarn surface, which creates an incredibly smooth fabric that is guaranteed never to itch and never to pill. The duality of a poly core surrounded by merino wool gives AXIO yarn the best of both worlds: the fast drying properties of a polyester inner filament and all the remarkable next-to-skin characteristics of merino that outdoor athletes have come to rely on - warmth when wet, odorlessness, and natural thermo-regulating comfort without clamminess.
Launching with the new Summer ‘21 collection, Beringia’s Masters of Bishu premium skin-contact line of base layers and t-shirts will exclusively feature AXIO fabric.
