Our quest for the finest Merino Wool in the world led us to “The Merino Company”, based out of New Zealand. For the last year we have been offering our ULTRA Merino base layers, and have been unable to keep it on the shelves. With all the natural attributes of Merino Wool, plus the added benefits of Nuyarn technology, ULTRA Merino has taken the hunting market by storm. Nuyarn is not a different fabric, but a different way of making the fabric, eliminating the twist from traditional ring spun yarn. Nuyarn lays the Wool fibers parallel with Nylon giving it all the advantages shown in the chart below, comparing Nuyarn to traditional ring spun yarn.

Why take advantage of this incredible fabric and comfortable clothing only during hunting season? We offer a wide range of colors in all of our ULTRA Merino pieces that are ideal for everyday wear. Our 125 SS and LS are perfect for your hot summer days, and our 210 Zip-T for those cool winter nights. We even offer our Zip-Off Bottoms in solid colors for the guys who have to wear base layers to work. Don’t let your KUIU gear sit in the closet while you wait for next hunting season to come around. Invest in some solid color ULTRA Merino to help keep you warm, dry, comfortable, and stylish while out on the town.

    I was wondering if the tail on the long sleeve wool shirts is long enough to tuck in. I ordered your initial merino wool (the very first model) and the tail was very short and I could not tuck it in.

    Thanks and have a great day

      Hi Bob,

      Yes these are quite a bit longer than our first run 4 years ago. A much better fabric with NuYarn. Give it a try and if you do not like the fit I will send you a pre-paid label and full refund.

    I with the rest of thees guys above, solids are awesome. Your vias/verde stuff is top notch, but its always nice to have good quality technical gear to wear out and about when its not hunting season.Keep up the good work!

    Any thoughts on boxer briefs made from Nuyarn, always tough to find a decent bottom base layer on warmer days!
    Love all your stuff.

    Jason, have you guys experimented with using silver threads like X-static with the Merino?

    • KUIU Ultralight Hunting

      We have considered using silver thread. However, because of the natural ability of Merino Wool to manage odor, we have not found a need to use silver thread in our Merino. For our other fabrics, MacSpec by Toray out performs any other odor management treatment.
