What keeps the cold out daily?: Merino lined Ugg Boots

A pair of thermals and ugg boots will go a long way to fighting the cold this winter. A good pair of ugg boots warm the feet quickly and keep them that way which making them ideal to beat the cold and reduce overall heating costs too. Ugg boots have grown in popularity each and every year and recent economic instability has done little to slow their growth. Ugg boots have matured from a celebrity trend in the late 90’s to a winter comfort staple. The best ugg boots are made from Merino wool because of the good insulation properties provided by the strength and tenacity of the fibres. The thick fleecy inner of merino sheepskin ugg boots are constructed from millions of microscopic fibres which give the linings strength and elasticity. According to manufacturers Whooga UGG Boots ounce for ounce, wool is stronger than steel and can withstand being bent over 30,000 times. In addition to strength, merino sheepskin possesses the ability to wick moisture and odour away. Merino sheepskin captures more air in its fibres than traditional sheepskin, the presence of air pockets creates the natural thermostatic qualities that keep feet warm during very chilly days (down to -30C) and cool during warmer days by circulating air. Among sheepskin there is a vast difference in comfort levels. Thicker fibres are scratchy more fragile and offer less insulation whilst the finer grading of fibres of Merino wool give superior comfort and feel. Merino sheepskin is rarely used by ugg boot manufacturers with the vast majority of manufacturers preferring inferior sheepskins or combination with synthetic mixtures to keep the costs down. Whooga UGG Boots hand craft their boots from Merino leather.
