Our merino wool is a high-quality, eco-friendly material that has many natural benefits that make it perfect clothing attire for relaxing at home and especially when it comes to enjoying the restorative power of the outdoors. Not only is merino wool soft-to-skin-touch and comfortable, but it is naturally antimicrobial and has excellent thermoregulating and moisture wicking benefits, keeping you dry, comfortable and warm as you commune with nature.
Another great thing about our merino wool is that it’s 100% sustainable and biodegradable, being made from environmentally friendly materials. This means that this material doesn’t just bring joy to those that wear it and enjoy its benefits, but also a bright future to the Earth itself and the next-generation.
Our yarn is also 100% ethically sourced and produced by our specialist knitwear supplier, avoiding counterproductive, unacceptable pitfalls like non-ethical mulesed merino and damage caused by unsustainable livestocking and land overgrazing. This is because at Sherpa we believe that when it comes to ethics and sustainability, there are no exceptions, and that good karma is the only rule.
At Sherpa Adventure Gear, we have a high-quality range of beautiful women’s merino wool knitwear with vibrant colours and handwoven, Nepalese-rich, Sherpa-exclusive designs, including Nepalese Jacquard. Our knitwear is warm and incredibly comfortable, keeping you dry with expert moisture wicking. This makes them perfect for hiking, running, everyday treks and cycling adventures.
Our hand-knitted, Merino wool hats are warm and excellent for regulating body temperature and moisture wicking from head-to-toe. Moisture wicking is important when exerting yourself outside because when sweat is allowed to just sit on skin it can cause overheating and skin irritation, which can really spoil the fun of being outside in nature.
Beanies like our Tenbu hats not only have stylish, fun designs rich in culture and exclusive to Sherpa, but are also handcrafted by the women’s co-ops in Kathmandu and nearby villages. Our high-quality hats provide flexible employment and economic support to Nepalese communities and bring the traditional spirit of Nepal to your head.
Our Merino wool long sleeved knitwear is lightweight, soft and warm, easy to both lounge about and be out on the go with. They feature Sherpa exclusive, Nepalese designs like our Merino wool jumper women’s Dumji Crew Alloy, which features unique, alloy textile designs and takes inspiration from the first Everest adventurers.
Not only do our merino jumpers have expert moisture-wicking that keeps you dry and comfortable, but natural, inbuilt UV protection. For extended periods outdoors, layered UV protection is great for helping protect skin from damage, especially as the sun’s UV rays are always stronger at the summit and can more easily get through regular clothing.
At Sherpa we believe in giving the world the best of the best that Nepal has to offer, from our high-quality, eco-friendly merino wool fabrics to our ethical, handcrafted clothing techniques. Our clothing stands out from the crowd with clothing that just breathes the Himalayas, combining the best of robust, reliable tradition and cutting edge modernity so you can enjoy nature in complete comfort without itchy, sweaty distraction.
Our mission at Sherpa Adventure Gear is to help expand people’s horizons and open their minds to new realities, encouraging them to live lives full of adventure and learning, which is why every piece of clothing you buy from Sherpa provides a Nepalese child with another day of school.
And, we don’t just stop there! Sherpa is always thinking about the next generation and what the future may hold. We care about sustaining the planet and giving back to nature, which is why clothing like our merino wool is 100% sustainable, ethically-sourced and biodegradable, helping support Nepal’s community and economy without polluting the air we breathe and destroying the natural wonders that we hold dear.
