Portland, OR, 18 November 2008 â€“ Icebreaker of New Zealand is proving it’s possible to be â€˜green’ and sexy at the same time!
The lightweight garments in Icebreaker’s BEAST and Nature range of sustainably-produced, biodegradable men’s and women’s underwear make ideal eco-friendly holiday presents.
â€œLike everything produced by Icebreaker the garments, made from pure merino wool sourced from the Southern Alps of New Zealand, are ultra-soft, breathable and non-itchy,â€ said Icebreaker Marketing Manager Deb Boswell. â€œMerino is a durable, and annually-renewable, natural performance fiber, which can be thrown in the wash and hung to dry. BEAST and Nature underwear offer sustainable luxury â€“ a â€˜better’ feeling than cotton.â€
BEAST: This premium line of sleek, luxurious, performance-oriented merino underwear gives guys a chance to reconnect with their inner Beast. Garments include briefs, boxers and t-shirts (crew and V-neck).
They’re high performance, ecologically sound and sexy as hell.
Nature: Icebreaker’s eco-friendly women’s underwear means holiday shoppers no longer have to choose between sustainability and sexiness. Nature comes in two weights:
Ultralite: Made from the finest, softest, most luxurious merino in the world, NATURE Ultralite is unbelievably gentle on your skin. This beautiful range of pure merino underwear features stunning nature-inspired prints. Garments include camis, bikinis, hipsters and more.
Lite: With extra merino fibres for added warmth, super-soft NATURE Lite garments can be worn solo or as underwear. Garments include leggings, tops and camis.
Every woman should have a pair of merino socks. The ultimate stocking stuffer is available online at www.icebreaker.com.

Icebreaker is sold in nearly 2000 stores in 24 countries throughout Europe, Asia, Australasia and North America.
