Colour: Boston black with black honeycom back. This fabric is black but may look lighter in some photos to show the fabric detail.
Fabric weight 225g
Composition: 57% merino 43% polypropylene
Black honeycomb/mesh type backing to draw and wick sweat.
Why Polypropylene and merino blended together:
1. The fabric gives warmth without weight
2. Moisture is moved away from the skin with the white honeycomb side.
3. Polypropylene retains heat longer for better comfort. The fabric has the sportwear backing which is designed to have maximum air trapped next-to-skin in the wool layer of the fabric meaning higher levels of warmth, moisture can then travel through the merino to the polypropylene surface where it is evaporated out of the fabrics structure without giving the wearer the feeling of 'clamminess'.
4. Mould, bacteria and mildew cannot grow on polypropylene and merino has in itself natural odour repellant behaviour meaning product can be worn for long periods of time and will not smell.
Nice for tops, baselayers. Singlets, camisoles, sports wear, and leggings.
Machine or hand wash.
