Been searching for a wool base layer that doesn't scratch me. This is it. Did have a small amount of spilling on tummy. Used a pill removing tool I have and it hasn't come back. Have to say the 1/4 zip 230 top is excellent. Warm, wicks perspiration, stays relatively odour free. I wash it after a week of use and I am out hiking or skiing every day for several hours a day. Definitely my go to base layer. My laundry loads are tiny now. It's the only top I wear. So yes, definitely recommend.
