Merino wool is widely considered to be one of the finest grades of wool, renowned for being very soft and comfortable against the skin. It also has advantages over other materials used for guitar straps because merino wool breathes, allowing it to absorb perspiration and release it into the air, which is beneficial during on-stage performances. It is also durable, comfortable and easy to care for.
Reunion Blues have taken advantage of these properties while designing what they consider to be "The World's Most Comfortable Guitar Strap." Merino wool is also often used in high-end garments, from rich wool sweaters to designer label suits. Considering the high-quality leather and fabrics Reunion Blues use in their bags, Reunion Blues felt merino wool would be the perfect complement to the rest of their product line.
