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 love these shirts. I’ve used them for layering in European winter weather and by themselves in a warmer northwest fall. They have a flattering fit. I just need more colors.
We're happy to hear that you like our shirts and that they fit well. We hope you'll continue to find our products useful and that we can help you find the perfect shirt for your needs. Thanks for the feedback! We will pass your suggestion along to our product development team.
I love the benefits of merino. These light weight shirts are nice. One of our shirts developed a tear under the arm, and the company replaced it immediately. I travel internationally each month and carry the men’s boxers and shirts with me every time. Great products.
Thank you for taking the time to reach out. The 100% Merino Wool Appalachia Women's S/S Crew - Lightweight is a great piece! Give us a call anytime, we love hearing from our customers!
I was reluctant to buy wool short sleeve shirts for an upcoming hiking trip--but they could be a new go-to. They are soft, not at all itchy as I'd feared and to have wool that can be washed AND dried--game-changer for me. Hoping for more colors to choose from in the future. The fit is true & comfortable.
I love the woman’s fit and cap sleeve. The fabric is so soft you would never guess it is wool. Great under my heavier weight woolies!
Thank you for the great review!
This was given to me as a gift, liked it so much, bought another one!
