A lightweight Merino wool blend made to deliver all the benefits of this natural fiber in a stylish, traditional, and multi-functional base layer.
This base layer begins with the Mimosa™ fabric, a blend of Merino wool, nylon and spandex. With Merino wool being the biggest component, this natural fiber delivers the unique qualities that no other material can duplicate; highly breathable and moisture moving with superior insulation properties, even when wet. Wool's ability to trap countless tiny pockets of air in order to create a microclimate of warmth is unique and the synthetic fibers help to keep the fabric soft and to maintain a contemporary fit.
