Why should I purchase Navidium Shipping Protection? 

Adding Navidium Shipping Protection to your order at checkout means that your order is protected against being lost, damaged, or stolen. In the unfortunate instance that you experience one of these inconveniences that fall within the Navidium protection policies, you can contact PO.P customer service and we will work with you to get a replacement order out or a refund.  PO.P is not able to replace orders that are lost, stolen, damaged or missing that are not protected by Navidium. PO.P is responsible for tendering your order safely and securely to the carrier, in most cased Fedex or USPS. Once your order is in the custody of the courier, PO.P cedes responsibility for your package to the carrier. We strongly encourage you to purchase the Navidium Shipping protection  available as an option at checkout to protect your order while in transit and upon delivery. Please read more about the service offered by Navidium at this link. The protection is an optional selection at checkout but highly encouraged, especially at peak shipping times during the year.

Garment Quality

How can you guarantee that merino wool products are mulesing free? 

Animal welfare is important to Polarn O. Pyret and it does not accept the mistreatment of animals. We distance ourselves from mulesing and only buy from suppliers that guarantee mulesing-free merino wool.

Will my Polarn O. Pyret garment shrink? 

Polarn O. Pyret accept a shrinkage of up to 3% for woven garments and 5% for knits/ jerseys. To avoid shrinkage, consider line drying, and certain items might need ironing after washes, to regain their original shape and fit. If needed, this will always be mentioned on the care label.

Is my outerwear jacket from Polarn O. Pyret waterproof? 

Polarn O. Pyret has three levels of functional garments with water repellent properties. Information will be found on the label and product detail page online. If you need more guidance we are always here to help! We love talking about our outerwear!
Waterproof: The fabric is waterproof (>2000mm H₂O) and has sealed seams. Suitable for heavy rain conditions.
Water resistant: The fabric is waterproof (>1500mm H₂O) and has folded seams. Suitable for rainy or snowy conditions.
Water repellent: The fabric's surface has been treated to repel water. Suitable for light rain.

What does USPF 50 for Swimwear mean? 

UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and is used to communicate the level of protection garments provide. Clothes with UPF 50+ block out 97.5% of UVA and UVB rays. This is approximately 5 times higher protection than that provided by a normal cotton T-shirt. At Polarn O. Pyret we reach the UPF 50 level through fabric without additional chemicals.
