Excellent quality Merino wool t-shirt

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jeff from Oregon on Wednesday, January 20, 2016
I have four of these icebreaker t-shirts and wear them for everything: hiking in cool to hot seasons, casual, travel, and also under a Merino zip top for the office in winter. I wear heavier Merino long sleeve shirts for base layer in cold weather hiking.

These shirts are lightweight, probably 150g wool. They handle heavy perspiration much better than cotton and do not stink like poly/coolmax synthetic fabrics. When wet they have a slight wet wool odor but not offensive as the sweaty synthetics or clammy like the soaked cotton. Like all Merino wool products I have tried these are very smooth and do not itch like coarser wools.

I wash these almost every week and after seven months the first t-shirt I bought is still holding up like it was new. Merino wool does not wear out from washing like cotton fabric does. Nor do they fade. I wash in cold water and hang dry indoors over night. Merino wool dries much faster than cotton. The sizes are for a snug fit as a base layer.
