Recently, we were looking over our herd of Merino sheep, when someone suggested “let’s make the ultimate Merino wool piece.” Thus, the Variant Merino Hoodie was born. Our exclusive DuraSpun Merino combines the toughness of Cordura® with everything we all love about Merino wool. We didn't stop there. The Variant's Cordura® panels add toughness. Its terry lining adds softness. The kangaroo pocket carries stuff. Over-engineering: it's kind of our thing.
