Mons Royale

Our pick of this season's best Mons Royale snowboard gear

Born in 2009 in the mountains of New Zealand, Mons Royale was the brainchild of Hamish and Hannah Acland. They specialise in creating sustainable, high-performance, quality, merino wool base layers.

An essential part of your ski and snowboard clothing setup, a base layer is the foundation of the 3-layer system. Despite being hidden under your other layers, the base layer is actually your body’s first line of defence against external forces. A good base layer should be able to wick moisture from the skin, and allow you to maintain a consistent and comfortable body temperature.

As a next to skin fabric, not a lot can compete with Merino. They’re natural fibres that come from Merino sheep, it’s one of the softest wools available, with the finest micron. As a material, it has fantastic properties relating to both cold and warm weather activities. Best of all? It’s odour free.

As a natural fibre, Merino wool is a far more sustainable option than some synthetic options. It’s grown year round and each year the sheep produce a new fleece, making it a completely renewable fibre. All of Mons Royale’s merino wool is made in partnership with New Zealand’s ZQ Merino, the world’s leading ethical wool brand. They stand for a better quality of life for the animals, the planet, and people. The yarn is spun at Süedwolle and certified with the latest eco certifications including Bluesign and Oeko-Tex standards.
