The technology behind Houdini W's Desoli Zip is based on a simple concept - Let nature do the work. It’s a 100% merino wool base layer that will provide extra warmth all year around. Works perfectly for skiing, hiking, climbing or everyday adventures.
The Houdini design department has spent years looking for the right material in 100% merino wool. It’s not easy to find a fabric that deliver to our standards for performance, quality and sustainability. After many meeting of fabric stroking, many prototypes and extensive field testing, we finally landed on the fabric Solid Merino.
It’s a super fine 100% merino wool fabric from Australia. Guaranteed mulesing free. We never mix wool and synthetics. The reason is that we now have a completely circular product: Renewable and both biodegradable and recyclable. Solid Merino provides all the benefits of pure merino wool. It’s naturally odor resistant, keeps you warm even when it’s wet and has a cool feeling against the skin when it’s hot outside. The fit is slim and slightly longer for ex.tra comfort.
The Houdini W's Desoli Zip will keep you warm on the mountain, in the city and anywhere in between. It works perfectly for skiing, bicycle commuting, climbing or hiking. The Desoli wool series comes in zip, crew, tee, tights and underwear. Find your favorites and mix and match.

Wool is a fantastic material with natural bacterial and dirt resistance. Therefore, wool does not need to be washed after every use. Frequent washing has a negative effect on the wool's properties and unnecessarily wears down the garment. Instead, air your wool garments to reduce your water usage, save energy and make your garments last longer.
- Use a washing bag to protect your garments.
- Machine gentle wash at max 30 degrees, preferably with a wool program.
- If you can, use wool detergents. Otherwise use mild, environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose. Select a detergent that has a neutral pH and no enzymes.
- Avoid bleach and alkaline substances that raise the pH value. Also avoid enzymes such as protease or amylase since these can break down wool, which give this material its natural performance properties. This also applies to silk.
- Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
- Do not dry in tumble dryer.
- Shape the garment after washing and lay flat to dry.
- Wool is a natural and living material that can relatively easily be formed. Therefore, please store your wool garments folded and not on a hanger to avoid your garments losing shape.
The Circular label means that this product is made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Biodegradable label means that the natural fibers in our products are never mixed with synthetics, and we don’t use harmful chemicals. Therefore, you can put the fabric in a compost and nature will transform the fabric into fertile soil. Trimmings like care labels, zippers, seams etc have to be removed and can often be recycled separately. If you don't have your own compost, you can return the worn out garment to us. We have recycling units in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Renewable label means that the fibers in the garment comes from 100% renewable sources, like wool or cellulose. We only use natural fibers that are produced in environmentally and ethically responsible sources. We use both natural and synthetic fibers, they both have their merits, but we never mix them to ensure a circular product. This means that the fabrics from all our products in natural fibers are fully biodegradable.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
