I have this tunic in black, pale orchid, and olive tree and love them all. They are soft, on the thicker side, and I never get hot in them. The only slight issue I can see is a little pilling in the lighter colors (because I can’t see it on the black), but I’m sure that’s just the nature of merino. It’s certainly more of a “nubbiness” than a polyester pilling. Otherwise these shirts are completely perfect—color, relaxed fit, everything.
