About Terramar
Keeping people warm, dry and comfortable is a science. But it’s also a passion.
Terramar pioneered and introduced the Thermasilk® line of Chinese pure silk underwear in the early 1970s and since then, Terramar set out to deliver a high-performance line of synthetic base layer garments by embracing the development of “high-tech” moisture management fabrics.

With our proprietary ec2® Qwik-Driâ„¢ electrostatic technology designed to actually pull moisture away from the body, Terramar then developed and introduced its most revolutionary line of base layer garments yet – Body-Sensors® and it’s line of 100% Pure Australian Merino Wool base layer garments called Thermawool® launched last year. Spring 2008 brought the introduction of ThermaTX2â„¢, a new, high-performance 100% pure silk inner layer, 100% merino wool outer layer collection.

We believe that a company is best judged by its creativity, performance and the quality of its products. We draw inspiration from the unique individuals who rely on our one-of-a-kind base layer garments to accomplish rare acts of courage and endurance. So for as long as you’re set on reaching new heights, we’re set on innovating new products to help you reach them.
