Wool and Well-being In The Extreme
On Sunday 8th we will be welcoming John Hudson, survival expert and Andy Caughey, founder of Armadillo Merino to talk through survival experiences and the benefits of wool in extreme conditions.
John Hudson the UK military's Chief Survival Instructor, puts his expertise to the test in some of the planet’s most demanding environments. Amongst others, John has survived the elements in Asian and Central American jungles, the Arctic Circle and the high altitudes of the Atacama Desert. He is an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and is currently writing his first book
Andy Caughey founded Armadillo Merino® after seeing images of soldiers returning from the Iraq and Afghanistan war with avoidable burns and injuries from the petrochemical based clothing they were wearing. Wanting to stop these injuries, Andy developed a range of Merino next-to-skin garments that have now been worn in the most extreme conditions and have been tested on earth and in space.
