VOORMI® Unveils Dual Surface UL Technology

Ultra Light Performance Wool Fabric Delivers All-Season Comfort



VOORMI®, an innovator of domestically sourced Precision Blended Wool fabrics and apparel, is proud to unveil DUAL SURFACE™ UL Precision Blended Wool Technology. This technology, a key building block of the new All-Season Lightweight Collection by VOORMI, leverages the brand’s precision blending capabilities to deliver a holy-grail mix of ultra-lightweight fabric, performance moisture management, and best-in-class durability.   

Well known for the company’s innovations in precision blended wool for mountain professionals and outdoor pursuits, VOORMI’s new DUAL SURFACE™ UL Precision Blended Wool Technology delivers a significantly lighter weight merino-based fabric without sacrificing durability or performance. VOORMI’s DUAL SURFACE™ UL Technology locates a razor-thin layer of moisture wicking polyester next-to-skin while maintaining merino wool dominance throughout the remainder of the fabric. Combined with new super light construction, DUAL SURFACE™ UL promises to deliver an unprecedented level of warm-weather comfort and all-season performance.

DUAL SURFACE™ UL fabric weighs just under 100g / sq. meter, making it 30-50 grams lighter than the leading ultra light merino fabrics currently on the market. VOORMI’s Chief Marketing Officer Timm Smith commented, “Our goal has always been to expand the performance possibilities of merino wool. We’re beyond thrilled with the results from our new DUAL SURFACE™ UL Technology; it’s a fabric that is as comfortable on a boot pack as it is on the river.”
