Outerknown Woolaroo Trunk

Outerknown is taking it back to the golden age of surfing with a 100% Merino wool boardshort that's inspired by the era's heavy twill trunks. While Merino is a natural material, it doesn't make it any less technical. The fabric in the new Woolaroo is a performance fiber through and through and has been celebrated for its natural ability to shield against odors, wind, and water and it's naturally breathable, temperature regulating, and dries quickly. Developed in collaboration with The Woolmark Company, the fabric is made from 100% Australian Merino and uses a manufacturing process that doesn't require any chemicals or synthetics.
