In the chill midwest, underlayers are de riguer from fall through spring and I've owned all the well-known brands in merino wool and polyester and these Medima angora/merino blend garments are truly exceptional. The quality of the material is luxurious due to the high angora content while the wool p...

Love these! Now have bought my 2nd. This crotch seam will not pull apart. The cuffs will not cut off my circulation but will stay in place. The fabric is as warm as about anything but is soft and snugly(and amazingly light) My color is grey asphalt, just right. True to size. Good service from Sierra too.

I am a letter carrier and I purchased my first pair of Medima long johns last year and never needed to wear them, this year I opened the package and fell instantly in love. I am back to buy more because they are so warm, well made and really are warm enough to replace my thick polypro long johns. I am familiar with the Medima name as I used to live in Europe and have seen their products in specialty stores. I cannot recommend these long johns highly enough, they are great!!
I have the long sleeve undershirt that I have had for a few years and wear that when its really cold out under my turtlenecks. I just wish they made a turtle neck style as well!!
I wasn't aware of any problems until your question. I did look on youtube and noticed that many videos were done by caring people that obviously do care about their animals. I grew up on a farm and realize that farmers vary in how they treat their animals.
I have not checked into who Medima purchases their angora from, if they care about such matters.... Have you?
My comments were for other buyers regarding the quality of the items Medima made and that STP sells. I was not commenting on the ethics of Medima.

Thank you for your reply. In answer to whether or not I know where Medina sources their Angora, no I do not--that is what I have been trying to find out. Not their specific source, since I of course do not know which specific farmers adhere to which practices, but whether or not someone somewhere down the line does have such knowledge and can guarantee that they are using cruelty free sources. There is a translation of Medina's response under the Medina underwear tops. It seems that their buying policies do exclude at least the worst possible scenarios.

This is where Medima gets there Angora from, a company in Germany called "Naturfasern" "Caregora" which supposedly adheres to rather strict animal welfare standards.
""Update on the Angora Wool Market: Last year we reported on how a video depicting screaming Angora rabbits being plucked for their fur almost destroyed the market for Angora products as leading retailers removed all products from their shelves. Targeted were the Chinese suppliers of the fur. European suppliers have stepped up and taken advantage of what they claim is more responsible harvesting of the rabbit fur. Chief among them is German supplier Naturfasern who claim to supply products in full compliance with European animal welfare standards, and have created a standard for the fur, Caregora. This is a prime example of an extremely narrow social/ethics issue giving rise to a very specific standard.""
It appears as though and as usual the Chinese suppliers are the problem as they are utterly ruthless in their treatment of all animals.
The Germans however are exactly the opposite.
