Air is able to flow through the fibers to release your body heat. So a lightweight summer garment is not out of the question.
Merino manages moisture.
It wicks sweat away from your skin. Many outdoor enthusiast use merino wool as a base layer to protect themselves from sweat in the cold turning to a wet cold garment.
Merino wool can be worn all year round.
Merino wool has a natural crimp to it that allows air to be trapped next to the skin as an insulator. No need to worry about sweating because of it’s superior wicking abilities, but only if its worn next to your skin. You won’t be sweating and itching when you walk inside from cold outside.
In the summer wool has the ability to store moisture within the structure of the fiber. As your body heats up, the moisture within the fiber will begin to evaporate, cooling the air between your skin and the wool. Consider making a tank or t-shirt using our lightweight Fingering or Lace weights.
Merino is odor resistant.
Because of wool’s ability to effectively manage moisture, odor-causing bacteria don’t have the moist environment they need to thrive. Another reason to create that summer tee.
