Information about Medima Merino Wool-Angora Underwear Shirt - Lightweight, Long Sleeve (For Men)
Closeouts. When you wear Medima's long underwear shirt, you'll never go back to simple cotton again. Super-soft angora not only has the best heat retention and wicking properties of any natural fiber, it also has the widest comfort range of any fiber, synthetic or natural.
Ultrasoft, moisture-wicking and breathable angora-wool-acrylic fabric

First off, I like wearing the undershirt as it is very soft, breathable, and keeps me warm. I primarily wear this under my long sleeve button-up business work shirts as my office is rather cool in the winter and summer. However, the fit on this shirt is less than perfect. I originally ordered a M which I actually tend to wear a S bc I like a tight fit. I LOATHE baggy clothes, even the slightest excess in material near the waste. I am 5'11" , 150 lbs, and have a very lean, athletic build. Once the M shirt arrived, it was obvious that this shirt wasn't going to work. While the torso fit right, the arm length was 4-5" too short, the shoulders were too small, and the armpit seem was too tight and shaped weird. I liked the material so much, and at such a good price, I decided to give them another chance and ordered an XL. This one fit much better in the shoulders to where I can fully extend my arms and back in all directions with out any tightness. The arm length could still be another inch longer though. But whatever. And the shirt is long enough to tuck into your pants, which I was skeptical at first, but now I like it. So there. Would I recommend this shirt?...Only with caution.

Hard to go wrong with Medima wear if the size is available for my large size. Really appreciate STP providing such quality wear at such savings. All our family appreciate Medima clothing items made available at STP. Wish lived close enough to drop by and do order pickup at site and avoid the shipping. Thanks Again.

In general this is a cool shirt.
BUT: It's extremely small - I usually wear small to medium. I bought this in large and it's still a bit to short on the sleeves. Xsmall I would say.
The sleeves are also too wide already.
But still warm and soft and still smells nice, even after one week of bicycletrip without washing.
I answered this question under the Q&A onMedima bottoms.

This is a translation from Medima's website in response to PITA allegations regarding animal cruelty in harvesting angora in China:
"We are a medium sized company with 130 employees that manufactures angora in Germany for many years. Also, we are animal loving people and us is the welfare of the rabbit heart. We are taken by your organization with machinations in connection with which we have absolutely nothing to do. We only use hair shorn from rabbits. Since there are only a few farms in Germany, we have to buy hair from China. These breeds are still tracked by our hair importers and regularly visited and here no animal cruelty takes place."

Washing fine merino wool clothing by hand is always recommended.here are special wool washing fluids that are available that utilize cold water, so if you use one of these type products, be sure to read the label first. Submerge your garment in the water and let it soak for just three to five minutes, followed by rinsing in warm water.

I have been washing mine with my regular whites (I have mostly cream colored Medima tops and bottoms) and they have held up fine. I only dry them for 20 minutes or so to get some of the dryer sheet action on them to hopefully reduce the static. I then hang them that they might finish drying. Red Ram did not hold up too well.
