does anyone know if Patagonia is the only Co. that makes wool/poly shirts? I have several all wool t's and find that they dont last very long, get snaged etc.

I have a wool shirt from LL Bean and another one from Smartwool, both of which I've had for a while and I really like them both. Quality products.

Try the Stoic Comp.

try Smartwool, about 90% of the time their items are made with a blend of wool and poly/nylon.
My general rule on my wool clothing is to wear it a few times before washing it. Washing definitely takes a toll on any clothing, and too many washes with normal detergent will kill your shirts even faster.
Wool is natually anti-bacterial, so I really don't mind wearing a baselayer for skiing 2-3 days in a row. It doesn't start to stink, and even after repeated use, the moisture wicking properties remain.
when you do go to wash, use something like this: Nikwax Wool Wash.
