Get close to nature with this non-synthetic gear
Natural fabrics are a great choice when it comes to running kit. They’re often more comfortable against the skin than synthetic material and harbour fewer bacteria so they tend to smell better too. Plant and animal-derived fibres biodegrade harmlessly and don’t require oil for manufacture. Particularly good for baselayers, fabrics such as merino wool are breathable, sweat-wicking and maintain their warmth even when wet.
