A New Look At Wool
I have Merino wool dress socks which I wear year around, so I was curious about wearing a Merino wool top. I gave it the "Norwegian Bachelor Farmer" test: wore it for 48 hours straight including a 14 mile hike on a wet Saturday followed by mowing the lawn on a sunny Sunday. No odor, no itchiness, and very comfortable. I now own two of the tops, and on cold days I wear them together under a shell. They are great for the wet cold of the Cascades.
