Can I use my online PO.P+ Points in-store? 

Unfortunately, not at this time. Online PO.P+ loyalty points can only be accrued and redeemed thru online purchases and activities. Our stores do have their own PO.P+ loyalty programs in which in-store purchases will accrue points towards redeemable rewards. PO.P in-store teams can assist you in setting up your in-store PO.P+ membership, as well as notify you when you have a reward available! Point accrual calculations remain the same for both online and in-store programs. If you have in-store points that you would like to use towards an online purchase, please contact customer service for assistance at or by calling 1-877-POP-KID1.

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.
