The construction of this merino wool uses a different yarn on either side of the fabric (known as a bi-component knit), creating the optimal hybrid for athletic endeavors and maximum comfort. Ultra-fine Merino wool next to the skin provides warmth even when wet.. Wool excels at moving moisture in a vapor state.
The outer synthetic fabric ensures perspiration dries quickly and adds durability. Temperature regulating features of wool allow it to comfortably be worn in any weather. The versatile fabric makes this a piece that can be worn alone or as a baselayer.
I am SO excited to see that Kitsbow has made a long sleeve merino shirt for women. The shirt fits as expected, with a little bit of a tight squeeze around the elbow. I wanted to wear the shirt with more of a blousey feel, so I sized up from a small to a medium and found the arms were more comfortable, without much change in the body. Saying "Runs Small" for this reason alone. The fabric has a super soft feel on skin and the wool blend does an excellent job of wicking away moisture when sweating. Now I just want a crew neck option!
