British tennis champion to compete at Wimbledon in innovative Merino wool kit developed by AMC and The Woolmark Company
Manchester, June 28 2021. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Andy Murray will make his return to Wimbledon later today in an innovative merino wool performance kit developed by AMC in collaboration with The Woolmark Company.
The first-of-its-kind wool blend tennis apparel collection has been engineered with Merino wool to enhance athletic performance.
Andy Murray commented: “I’ve been testing the kit for a few months now and am really happy with how it feels and performs. I work closely with the designers on every piece and give regular feedback. For me, the technical performance is vital. It’s also very important the kit is sustainable and I like the fact it looks and feels a bit different.”
Stuart McCullough, The Woolmark Company’s Managing Director, said: “The launch of this innovative kit elevates Merino wool to an entirely new level of performance on a global stage and demonstrates that Merino wool garments are both stylish and capable of use in an elite sporting environment.”
Merino wool is the world’s original performance fibre. No other fibre can match all of its natural benefits with exceptional breathability, thermoregulation and supreme softness next to the skin, helping players keep cool and comfortable on court. The fibre’s excellent natural elasticity is ideal for stretching and the natural odour resistance abilities ensure players stay feeling fresher for longer. Importantly, it is also gentle on the planet due to it being a 100 per cent natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
Andy will wear the Merino wool garments during his training for Wimbledon and for all matches during the tournament. The collection is being launched globally to coincide with the tournament, which starts on June 28. Please visit www.castore.com/AMC for more details.
