The wonder of woolies

Ah, merino! Forget modern scientific wizardry, merino is the original technical fibre. Merino has had a renaissance in recent years with cyclists and other outdoor athletes realising that merino has natural properties no modern fabric can replicate.

Woven into a fabric as soft as silk and barely thicker, it seems extraordinary that something so thin can be so warm. The secret is that merino fibres are incredibly fine, barely a quarter the thickness of a human hair, so they trap air much more effectively. Not only that, merino fibres also wick sweat away without feeling clammy against the skin. That's important, because the chilling effect of air over damp fabric can be a real problem in cold conditions. Merino retains warmth even when wet, which makes it perfect for winter rides. Finally, merino has natural anti-microbial properties which prevents unpleasant odours from building up. We don't recommend never washing your merino kit, but it's nice to know that you won't be turned away from cafes while on tour! None of these properties rely on artifical treatments, it's all down to nature.

Our merino is 100% non-mulesed and sourced from Australia.

Lightweight warmth

The merino is super soft. The material feels thin but it really makes a difference underneath a jersey.

Sizing is spot-on, as with the jerseys.

Good quality but very long

It's a good quality base layer. Warm for such thin fabric and soft for merino wool. Perfect for 3 seasons where I live. The only problem is that I have it in size Small and I am 172cm tall (5'7"-ish) and it's so long that it ends up being bunched up the bib shorts. Does not bother me from usability perspective but it's not a very good look. But if you are slim and tall it would work great for you.

Beautiful material

I purchased this baselayer on a whim really. I was delighted when it arrived, the material is really of the finest quality. And the fit is great too. I'll confess that I haven't worn it cycling, as it is too fine to be hidden under a jersey and sweated into, but I'm sure it does that job very well also. I wear it proudly as a t-shirt casually. I don't often write reviews, but due to the outstanding nature of this product, I felt compelled to do so. Top marks.
