Aclima HotWool is made from terry wool, which is a mixture of 65 % merino wool (in the loops towards your skin), 15 % polyamide and 20 % polyester. The mixture of these fibres makes the clothes thicker and more hardwearing than pure woolen garments. This means that you can wash these clothes at 60°C in the machine, and that it takes a lot to wear them out. This also means that lint can gather on the surface of the fabric as a result of the mixture between "stronger and weaker" fibres. These clothes are not exactly meant for Après-ski, but they are perfect for people who work outside a lot. The loops on the inside of this garment contain a lot of the air, and have great insulating abilities. Aclima developed this product in collaboration with the Norwegian Armed Forces, and they still use terry wool due to its superior hardwearing and insulating properties, even though the products are relatively light.
Aclima AS has been owned by Johansen family since 1939. During 3 generations we have become an important and competent Norwegian textile producer. The experience and knowledge that we have obtained throughout the generations are invaluable in our continuing efforts to keep people warm and dry. We know the requirements that our particular climate offers and we do our utmost to meet them. We try to make the best possible underwear for all conditions and professions. This is also why we focus on the user; for small children in the kindergarden or flame resistant and insulation underwear for the Army.
The wool specialist: Our vision is to contribute in getting more people to enjoy the outdoors. We work every day to carry out our business idea: “Aclima will combine knowledge of the market, fibres, knitting and design to develop and sell functional clothing for usage by outdoor people.” Aclima specializes in sports underwear with merino wool in most of its products. Merino wool provides excellent comfort in most weather and temperature conditions and in all levels of activity. As you might know, wool has the unique ability to keep you warm, even when you are wet from sweat, rain or snow. With Aclima products, we have created durable wool products that are very comfortable and have maximum breathability to transport moisture. Function has always been our first priority, but we are also concerned with how the clothing makes you feel and if you like the colours and design. We are grateful for any tips or input you may have.
Aclima AS is located in Krøderen, Norway near to the Norefjell ski resort, which is only 1 1/2 hour drive from Oslo. A fantastic area for product testing and development.
The Aclima collection covers outdoor sports activities all year, offering all necessary underwear layers and midlayers, so you and your family can enjoy outdoor activities feeling comfortable while doing it!
