About Terramar Sports Inc.

Since 1971, Terramar Sports has perfected the science of keeping people warm, dry and comfortable while enabling peak performance. Starting with an oiled wool sweater and a line of foul weather clothing from the UK, Terramar pioneered and introduced the Thermasilk® line of Chinese pure silk underwear in the mid-1980s, quickly becoming the first and largest importer of pure silk knitted underwear in the world. To complement its Thermasilk® products, Terramar developed EC2® Qwik-Dri™ moisture management technology designed to actually pull moisture away from the body. Terramar's revolutionary line of Body-Sensors® base layer garments was followed by an entirely new line of 100% Pure Australian Merino Wool base layer garments called Thermawool®, launching for the Fall/Winter 2007 season.
