MerinoShield with 7 HELIX.iso™ filters
Our seamless MerinoShield reusable knitted mask has an odour resistant and breathable merino outer layer, with an organic cotton inner lining for comfort and durability. The flexible nose bridge can be formed to ensure the mask has a moulded fit over your nose.
The MerinoShield has been designed around the HELIX.iso™ New Zealand made merino fibre filter, which fits between the cotton inner and merino outer to tightly cover your nose and mouth. Chosen by NASA for their next mission to the Moon, the filters performance is driven by specially formulated wool fibres from a composite New Zealand sheep breed called the Astino. The HELIX™ Filter also has very low breathing resistance, making it easy to wear all day.
Combining our premium merino yarns natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, and the revolutionary HELIX.iso™ merino filter system, our MerinoShield is a good defence against any airborne germs. Long term, the MerinoShield will protect you from pollutants and keep you warm while exercising, commuting, shopping and traveling. You will be able to repel bacteria and breathe purified air in the most polluted environments.
The MerinoShield is machine washable, and will last 50 or more cycles. We recommend you tumble dry or line dry in the sun, and steam with an iron to sterilise. HELIX.iso™ filters should be replaced after each use, and used filters should be safely discarded or incinerated.
