The perfect year-round t-shirt?
The smartest of them all
What you didn’t want
The material pilled
They were itchy
They were a nightmare to look after
The sleeves weren’t right
100% Merino magnificence
MOTHER NATURE, WE SALUTE YOU
Merino wool is a true wonder of the natural world. Thermo-regulating, it’ll cool you down when the heat’s on and keep you warm when Jack Frost comes knocking. No wonder it’s used for fancy running gear so often.
ITCH-FREE WONDER WOOL
Wearing your regular woolly jumper with zero layers underneath wouldn’t be too much fun, but thanks to Merino’s super-smooth texture, this stuff comes itch-free as standard. As the true merino nerds we’ve become, we’ll leave you with this T’s vital stat of 19.5 microns, which is the Merino fibre Goldilocks zone for comfort.
DRIES QUICK SHARP
Another one of the great things about Merino is that it dries really quickly, so whether you’re ambushed by Super Soaker-wielding kids in the park or you get caught in a summer downpour, you won’t stay wet for long.
A CUT ABOVE
While we enjoy putting the work into making the clothes you want, sometimes we can also make use of all the good stuff we already have on board. Like for the cut of our much-loved Ultimate T-Shirt, which works perfectly for its Merino cousin. Not too tight, and not too baggy, with a slightly tailored, straight cut. In short, it’s just right.
SO FRESH, SO CLEAN
That Merino fabric is anti-bacterial too. Keeping things succinct, this is thanks to something in the wool called which repels odours, so it’ll stay nice and fresh even after a long afternoon in the hot sun struggling to put a gazebo up.
GIVE IT A SPIN
Unlike some woollen wares, the Merino T-Shirt doesn’t need to be handled like some priceless artefact—and as long as you pay attention to the label it’ll be fine thrown in the washing machine. Put away the white gloves… this ain’t the Shroud of Turin.
DOWN TO A TEE
Ultra-fancy fabric aside, the Merino Tee still feels reassuringly like… you know… a t-shirt. It’s got a nice natural stretch and is super soft and light against the skin. The only thing we scratch is our heads to make sure there’ll be minimal pilling too—so it looks sharp and stays sharp, wear after wear.
NOTHING UP OUR SLEEVES
You lot were tired of sleeves that were too long, so we made sure ours were just right. Sitting in mid-bicep territory, we reckon they’re the perfect length—not too long and not too short.
A MERINO MASTERPIECE
The Merino T-Shirt is maybe the Subaru Impreza of the torso-wear world. It’s big on performance, but thanks to that casual cut, it won’t look out of place heading to the shops on a Saturday morning.
