Thick wool scarves, hats or coats are associated with the cold winter season, when we are trying to do everything we can to protect our bodies from the chilly weather. But wool clothes may be used equally effectively to achieve a completely opposite effect - they may be worn in spring, and even in summer. How is that possible? Merino wool, as that is the material we are talking about here, offers some truly unique thermal properties that make it ideally suited for warmer days. The Outdoor Wool Pro men’s long sleeve shirt made of merino wool is one of the products we offer.
What are the characteristics of the merino wool men’s long sleeve shirt and what makes it suitable for various types of activities?
Merino sheep live in mountainous areas, in temperatures dropping to -30°C in winter and soaring to 35°C in summer. In order to prevent the animals from freezing or overheating, their fleece had to adapt to the conditions they live in. Merino wool is incredibly thin, with a network of microchannels existing between the individual fibers. Those channels are filled with air warmed by the animals’ bodies. Such a structure creates a peculiar buffer zone making it easier for the sheep to maintain optimum body temperature. This natural design has inspired us to create a merino wool long sleeve shirt that will work perfectly not only on chilly, but also on warm, summer days. Thanks to its two-layer design, the fabric efficiently wicks any moisture created during physical activity. Its seamless structure will prevent skin scratching and bruising, making the garment an ideal solution for all-day hikes. The garment incorporates also the AirBalance system that is made up of several ventilation zones placed at locations that are particularly prone to sweating. The microholes cover as much as 15% of the surface of our merino wool shirt. As the individual fibers are three times thinner than human hairs, merino wool deflects gently in contact with our skin, thus eliminating the feeling of itching or scratching.
Men’s long sleeve shirt made of merino wool is an ideal solution for all types of outdoor activities.
Thanks to its unique characteristics described above, the merino long sleeve shirt will be a perfect companion for all-day mountain hike enthusiasts and for those who prefer to spend a few days camping at a lake. Its trendy color range and fashionable style make it a great alternative for your daily, urban outfits. We offer a wide variety of merino wool products that are suitable for different weather conditions. The shirt may be worn as a sole layer or in combination with other products, as part of a multi-layer outfit.
