Thread: Heads-up on cheap Merino wool base layers!

    Heads-up on cheap Merino wool base layers!

    I know a lot of you rate Merino wool as the best base layer.

    If you have a TK Maxx nearby it is worth checking out as they have 100% Australian Merino wool tops at half price. I picked up a crew-neck long sleeve top for 25 rather than 50 and I think they also had some zip-necked too which might have been a couple of quid more.

    Mine will be getting a try out on Saturday morning with Colin at New Abbey!

    Cheers,

    Andy

    you can pretty much boil wash any wool product so long as you start cold and bring it up and down to temperature slowly.
    its the cold shock of a rinse that kills wool

    These are defo machine washable. Feel like they will be reasonably warm so prob not a lightweight warm weather set but should be good for the cold stuff. As it's all got a bit wintry here I might try it out tonight!
