Why Merino Wool?
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Merino Wool fibers naturally reject any bacteria in moisture or sweat as it is wicked away, so foot fungus and smelly odor will not be a problem while wearing our products.
Insulates When Wet
Wool will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. If you do get wet, wool will insulate you better than cotton or polyester materials.
Merino Wool insulates against high temperatures and does not readily catch fire. If it does, it self-extinguishes. When Merino burns, it doesn’t melt and stick to the skin like synthetic fabrics do.
Don’t worry about sunburn on a sunny day summiting a peak. Lightweight layers have a UPF rating of 25. Midweight and Expedition have a UPF rating of 50+.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
I’ve been living in all my minus’s 33 attire and one of the sleeves stitching came apart and they exchanged it for a new one no problem. I’m staying with this brand for its amazing quality of product and customer service

The Yukon crew is excellent. Very comfortable and heavy weight and fits my extra large tall frame as advertised. Unfortunately, the -33 socks I’ve bought in the same order are much smaller than advertised, and I will need to return them, or give them away to a medium sized person.

The texture, durability, and cut of this sweater make it very multifaceted. While I primarily wear it under a drysuit for cold weather kayaking, I also wore it to meet my wife's parents for the first time. After five years the sweater looks new in a way that is unlike any other piece of gear I own. No pilling, no wear marks, it just looks great. I went with the long version of the sweater which I highly recommend if you are using it in the outdoors. Being able to properly tuck the shirt in or slide it lower is a really nice addition. I will say this sweater is not as warm as other wool sweaters which is fine because it makes up for it durability. No doubt it still insulates, but consider this a mid layer. Pull the trigger with this sweater, well worth it.
Only had the opportunity to wear it once, in all fairness, but for an Expedition weight Merino base layer, I would have thought it would be warmer. Seemed to me it was no warmer than my mid weight LL Bean. Which is quite a bit less money. It seemed to be well made and was very comfortable.
Need to give it another chance, to be fair. I will update after a couple more wear's if, this changes.
