Nuyarn Performance Merino Wool Lands in Active T-Shirt Collection

An Oregon performance apparel brand has unveiled a collection of Nuyarn merino wool T-shirts in time for the summer outdoor season.

Trew’s Nuyarn merino T-shirt line is a collaborative effort between the design team at Trew and its customer base, with conversations and extensive community polling taking place over the past two years. With the help of customer input, Trew has dialed in a product line that hits all of the marks for its customers, from colors and designs, to fit, sizing and features all built upon the technology behind New Zealand merino wool company Nuyarn.

Nuyarn uses a twist-free technique in spinning wool to better harness its natural attributes. When compared to traditional ringspun wool, Nuyarn claims to have 35 percent more volume and aeration, five times faster drying, 85 percent more elasticity, 35 percent more thermal retention and resistant to air, 50 percent greater burst strength, 8.8 times more resistant to abrasion and 120 percent strong seams.

Trew and Nuyarn have worked together in the past, previously launching three separate iterations of wool products between 2015 and 2018. With a long hiatus due to supply chain obstacles over the past few years, both companies are set to embark on a new chapter together with the launch of the new and improved Trew Nuyarn merino collection.

“Our customers rely on us to create products that will last,” Chris Pew, CEO of Trew, said. “There simply isn’t another merino wool on the market with the longevity and performance of Nuyarn. Not to mention, thanks to some amazing new designs and a collaboration with our customers, this is the best looking collection of merino T-shirts that we’ve ever released.”

While the Nuyarn merino collection currently consists of three T-shirt designs in eight colors and various different designs, Trew promises to launch more Nuyarn products, including base layers to pair with its outerwear as Fall approaches.

Born in Hood River, Ore., but now calling Portland, Ore., home, Trew believes that people who have positive experiences in the mountains are better stewards for the environment, happier people in their communities and more motivated to make the world a better place. The company’s mission is to make the best technical apparel for people to experience their own version of mountain nirvana.
