Minimalist Hacks – Merino Wool Clothing ♦ Minimalist Wardrobe ♦ Decluttering and Minimalism


So today I’m gonna talk about one of my
favorite minimalism hacks, merino wool! clothing. I first discovered merino
wool when I was researching different travel hacks. Merino wool is very
popular with travelers but I quickly realized it was just as applicable to
minimalist lifestyle as well. What makes merino so popular is its
breathability, its moisture management, its natural ability to wick away
moisture, and it’s heating and cooling properties. It truly is a four-season
fiber! Those properties also lend themselves well to a minimalist lifestyle. There are a lot of minimalist out there that, as part of their minimalist
lifestyle are wearing the same clothes every day. A lot of them have 5, 10, 15,
of the same shirt. What’s great about merino wool visits is
you don’t have to wash it as often. You can wear it a lot more often in
between washes and you don’t need as many items of clothing. This shirt I’m
wearing right now is merino wool. I have five of these because I only have to
wash them every 5, 10, 15, wears. I don’t need to have as many shirts. Another
misconception about wool is that it’s just for sweaters. Like I said, this t-shirt I’m wearing is a merino wool shirt. But What about collar shirts Kevin. SNAP! This shirt right here is also 100% merino wool. SNAP. This is probably what you would traditionally think a merino wool shirt would look like. You can also layer it
with other merino wool items to keep you warm in really cold climates. This is the
shirt I workout in. You can use merino wool shirts for almost anything. And like
I said previously you don’t have to wash them as often as you wash other clothes.
Merino wool is actually really easy to care for. I never wash my merino wool in
a washer and dryer. I just wash it in the sink with a little bit of wool specific
detergent that you don’t even have to rinse out. You only need to leave the
shirts in the sink for about 15 minutes and then I lay my merino wool flat to dry.
Like the shirt I’m wearing now and the other shirts I showed you earlier, if you
had two of each one of those shirts, when you’re wearing one
you could be washing and drying the other. Merino wool is going to be a little
bit more expensive than then you might pay for a cotton shirt, but you’ll need
to buy less of them. And my merino shirts last longer than my cotton shirts, so I
kind of consider it an investment. I’ve had to clarify this to people before,
being a minimalist doesn’t mean you’re cheap. Minimalist actually aren’t cheap! We actually buy less stuff but we buy better stuff. I’d argue that buying
quality stuff like merino wool actually helps you become a minimalist even more. Buying a merino shirt just happens to save you money in the long run because you have to buy less cotton shirts. Shirts arevnot the only merino wool items I have. I have Miranda wool underwear and merino wool socks as well. The only
things I wear that aren’t merino wool are my pants and my outer garments. If
