For those with sensitive skin, our 2-ply Merino 50 comes with a polyester lining, yielding more insulation and faster wicking. The polyester is soft against even the most sensitive skin, and is hydrophobic to quickly wick away sweat. The Merino outer layer adds the paradoxical climate control properties of all-natural wool.
Let's not forget the obvious. Wool is warm!
And yet wool has the amazing ability to not overheat when it gets hot. Think of it as a next-to-skin micro climate regulator.
It's odor free, naturally anti-microbial. When you're hot enough to sweat, don't worry, wool's remarkable chemistry (lanolin) stops the stink before it starts.
It's not combustible, so it resists burning.
And it's easy to care for. Machine wash warm or cold, then tumble dry or hang.

They are soft and twice as warm as me fleece base layer. I didn't get too hot in them. They were easy to wash in a machine and I just hung them out to dry.
