Merino wool is a staple of high-end athletic wear, and makes for an especially good base layer for running, climbing, and, of course, cycling. It’s excellent at regulating body temperature and wicking moisture, keeping you warm and dry even after a hard workout. These jerseys are perfect for the cold (I bike to work in the winter wearing only 2 layers of merino and a fleece vest), and excellent on their own for warmer days.
Pure merino wool is the Nutella of activewear fibers. It’s silky smooth against the skin and oh so delicious, plus it wicks moisture without becoming cold and clammy once you get to your destination. Best of all, it’s hardy, and it won’t retain stink like synthetic fibers can. Whether you’re out for a punishing ride or just going for a beer with friends, this jersey will keep you warm and looking sharp.
Each jersey is upcycled from 100% merino wool sweaters, which are washed and reconstructed into a stylish top with features like zippered necks, back pockets and vintage flair. Each piece is completely unique.
Care: Because merino wool won’t hold smell like synthetic fibers will, it’s not necessary to wash your jerseys each time you ride. When you do (I wash mine every couple of weeks), it’s best to hand wash with a mild detergent, roll in a towel to squeeze out excess water, then lay flat to dry.
