Get the look: Andy Murray wears Castore’s Merino wool range at Wimbledon 2021
Two time champion Andy Murray is back on the grass of Wimbledon and this year he’s wearing a unique outfit from sports performance brand Castore made with Merino wool
Andy Murray makes no secret of his quest for perfection but also has a sharp eye for fashion which no doubt drew him towards the unique qualities offered to performance athletes from Merino wool.
Castore have said that the fibre’s excellent natural elasticity make it ideal for stretching and the natural odour resistance abilities ensure players stay feeling fresher for longer. It is also gentle on the planet due to it being a 100 per cent natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
Murray said he had been “testing the kit for a few months now and am really happy with how it feels and performs”.
“I work closely with the designers on every piece and give regular feedback,” he added. “For me, the technical performance is vital. It’s also very important the kit is sustainable and I like the fact it looks and feels a bit different.”

Co-Founder of Castore, Phillip Beahon, has said of the new range, “100% natural and 100% biodegradable, the fabric is highly flexible, regulates body temperature and provides UV skin protection. As sustainability becomes ever more important in the world, sustainable fabrics like this will play a major role in the future of the sportswear industry and we are delighted to be leading the way.”
The full AMC x Woolmark Merino range in white includes a performance polo, tee, 1/4 zip and hoody.
