Advertising keeps telling us that this or that fiber is the ultimate and indispensable for every athlete. Only this fiber would wick moisture away from the body and keep the skin dry. This in turn would protect the athlete from becoming ill from sweating and subsequent cooling. The last statement may be correct, but that only man-made fibers can produce this effect is not true. Because nature provides us with various materials that speak for this success and that not only provide an excellent service as functional underwear, but are also comfortable to wear and are not stressful for the body. Natural materials are characterized by their very good skin tolerance and do not contain any substances that could irritate the skin or the organism.
High demands are made on functional underwear. She should join in every movement and not restrict the athlete. It should absorb moisture and ensure that the body stays dry at all times. If that weren't the case, the first step towards catching a cold would have already been taken. Functional underwear therefore forms the first layer for the onion look and, thanks to the use of virgin wool, has the advantage of being able to easily absorb odors and moisture and wick them away from the body. Functional underwear for women must also be washable and dry quickly, because the next sporting activity is already waiting! In addition, it should come from sustainable production, because we not only want to do something for our body, but also protect the environment and take its needs into account.
Our functional underwear therefore scores with the following properties:
The narrow fit is an important point, because functional underwear is naturally worn under normal sportswear. As a first layer, the underwear represents the first layer of the "onion skin system" and should not be bulky or give the body a misshapen figure. It must also not crease or make wearing the sportswear uncomfortable. The functional underwear in our range easily fulfills all of these conditions and scores above all with the use of materials that were given to us by nature and that we can consistently use for our purposes. Without harming the environment and nature!
The material combination of wool and silk creates a fabric that meets the highest expectations. The fabrics are breathable, airy and light and thus meet the requirements of an active athlete as well as a woman who is active in her free time, wants to hike or cycle and is looking for the right underwear.

As a result, the positive properties of the fiber are retained and are multiplied when combined with silk. This has a slightly cooling effect, is pleasantly soft and airy on the skin. A wonderful body climate is created! When wearing this functional underwear, you never have the feeling of being constricted or that your body cannot breathe.

Some athletes are of the opinion that they don't need functional underwear. A normal undershirt would do it too! But that is a wrong assumption, as anyone who can draw a direct comparison between normal clothing and functional underwear will confirm. Normal cotton underwear lets the body stay moist and leaves an uncomfortable feeling on the skin, which will quickly increase to shivering and with which you run the risk of catching a cold. The body climate is anything but healthy if the surface of the skin remains moist over a long period of time. Our functional underwear made of organic merino wool and silk, on the other hand, allows your skin to breathe a sigh of relief. She succeeds in trying to reduce her body temperature during her sport because the heat can escape through the functional underwear. There is no build-up of heat or moisture and you feel fitter and more resilient.
