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

I didn't give 5 stars because the sleeves are way too short.
I have recently gone to this brand over red ram and smart wool because it has such a better feel. The itchiness of the wool leaves with a few washings for the most part, sufficiently for me to not notice it.
4 stars also because the cost is so much greater than red ram. But then, I own a cream colored red ram short sleeve shirt that is threadbare after a few months of wearing it for a sleep shirt. And that is the second one I have trashed by frequent use. These Medima shirts are going to hold up much better. So the added cost might be justified.
One thing is certain, these shirts are 5x more comfortable than the other brands.

I purchased this product because of the angora content and angora's superior warmth. It was warm but it was quite itchy. I ended up wearing a polyethylene base layer first to prevent being uncomfortable. However, the corresponding long underwear bottoms were not itchy.

I would usually wear a size L t-shirt (I'm 6' tall). After reading some reviews, I decided to buy an XL. Well, it was way too small. One reviewer wrote "go up two sizes." I'm not sure two sizes is enough! And the color is cream...not white. I returned the shirt.
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.
