minus 33 merino wool clothing, Sailing On Blue Water

Sailing on Blue Water

California has got the goods when it comes to climate.


I’m finding Los Angeles to be more and more of an outdoor city. There are beautiful mountain trails, camping venues from the shore to the desert, and it seems everyone is constantly outside enjoying nature. The weather here allows for it. The ocean’s current brings cold water down from Alaska, but the sun shines on the same latitude as Georgia. The result is a warm sun with a cool breeze. This creates a Mediterranean climate that hangs out somewhere between 50 and 70 degrees all year long (perfect sailing weather). So if you are a fan of light jackets and ocean breezes, this might be the place for you.READ MORE

Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, October sailing on the Hudson river

October Sailing on the Hudson River

The October winds are here, and they bring with them swelling white caps and brisk gusts on the Hudson River. The sailboats that traverse these waters pitch and yaw in the sweeping currents. We also have to deal with the massive wakes of ferries, tankers, and cruise ships. The winds that bite are volatile and shift often. And then there are all the little speed boats that love to cross your bow as close as they possibly can. Suffice it to say, if you are sailing on the Hudson, you will get wet.


Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, a Caribbean adventure!

A Caribbean Adventure!

A lot of people caveat wool as a winter time fabric.

It has connotations of hounds-tooth sweaters at Christmas parties, woolen snowflake beanie caps in ski lodges, and itchy pilled scarves worn on our first toboggan runs as children. But when it comes to wool and summer, the two worlds never seem to cross.
