What is a Merino Base Layer?

A Merino Base Layer is the first layer of clothing you put on when you are doing sport. It's also known as a "next to skin" layer – when you wear it you'll realise how nice it feels next to your skin. Honest.

And because it is made from 100% Merino wool it will regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool when you're hot and warm when you're cold. Merino wool naturally wicks away sweat and on top of that, because it's anti-bacterial, you can wear it over and over again and it won't stink like a polyester base layer. In fact, we've heard of people not having to wash them for up to five months.

The great thing about Merino base layers too is that they work brilliantly as part of a layering system. Wear our Light Merino Base Layer against your skin, then when it gets a bit chilly, add our a second base layer, like one of our Merino Vails or a Merino mid-layer.

We think once you've put it on, you won't want to take it off. Then again, you don't have to very often.
