Wool is the fabric of choice for active outdoor activities. Many people believe it is only for cool or cold weather. However, merino wool garments are actually the perfect choice for hot humid weather when the correct weight is chosen.
Woolx's lightweight merino wool crew shirt was such a hit we came out with a much-requested v-neck style. Made from our popular 17.5 microns - 160 g/m² 100% merino wool fabric you'll be surprised at the level of comfort this shirt provides even on a 90 degree day.
Unlike cotton, merino wool transports moisture and doesn't hold it next to the skin. Cotton tops on humid days hold and trap moisture causing you to be wet and damp. Merino wool is constantly transporting moisture away from your skin where it can evaporate causing a cooling effect.
In addition, merino wool doesn't trap odors and can be worn multiple days in humid environments without developing a stench. Since it dries so quickly it can also be field washed and will be dry and ready to wear again in a very short period of time.
So if you are an outdoor enthusiast give some merino wool garments a try in the summer weather. You'll be cooler, drier, and much more comfortable during your most strenuous outdoor activities.
