Meraklon Mid Layers

Meraklon thermal mid layers are manufactured from a worsted polypropylene yarn under the trade mark Meraklon. This thick yarn is knitted on a circular interlock machine to produce tubular fabric, eliminating the need for side seam on the mid layers (apart from the xsmall and xxl sizes). After knitting, the inside face of the fabric is heavily brushed, providing a soft fleece layer next to the skin that is very good at insulating the body by trapping warm air.

A lot of people like Meraklon due its hydrophobic properties, as unlike other yarns and fabrics, polypropylene absorbs no moisture, making it quick to dry and fast to transport moisture away from the skin. It is especially good for industrial use as the fabric is chemically inert and durable, allowing it to be worn in situations where other synthetic fabrics would not be allowed. It is also ideal for children and adults with sensitive skin or eczema, as the yarn is naturally hypoallergenic and the fabric has no chemical treatments applied to it.
