It's soft, it fits really well (5'8", size M), and is good for being on the run outside, the casual office day, or the brewery.

My favorite shirt, had to order another. I have this hoodie in the half zip and the non zippered model, both amazing pieces of clothing. Whether you are curled up on the couch with you special someone or on the third and most grueling pitch of ice this shirt is great. Soft wool that doesn't itch and is super durable. I've been wearing them for years now and washing them and they have yet to spring a hole it run in them. The "hand panties" option on the cuff is a nice feature for the walks in the park when it is brisk or to cover your hands on a cool day that is sunny while rowing a raft.

Best base layer I own. I also own a Patagonia and a Columbia base layer and This is my new favorite. Took it skiing twice and winter hiking once. Didn't even need a mid layer when skiing right around 35ish F. I just coupled it with a hard shell. Hiking was also great. Similar temperature and I mostly worn a soft shell over it and I was good until I reached the top. Highly recommend it.

It's a perfect base layer. It's slim fitting but long enough, I am 6'3 200 pounds and tucked in it hasn't moved in back and the sleeves are surprisingly long considering it's a large. It's everything amazing about pure merino we all love. One thing to note though, it's not a hoodie the way you think of a hoodie. When zipped up and hood on my wife said I looked like an astronaut with everything but a helmet on and after looking at a picture I can't really argue that. Not that I would, it's meant to be the bottom layer and it does a great job of it and I'll be ordering another one soon,

This hoodie is basically the 250 baselayer with some extra features like the nice long cuffs with thumb holes, a quarter zip, and a hood. This could easily stand in for a base layer as the hood is low profile and also doesn't take up much room when not in use. The hood would fit nicely under a helmet or another jacket's hood. Overall, it feels well made with a lot of nice details. I typically get smartwool baselayers in a size small for a pretty skin tight fit, but I went with a medium on this more a more standard hoodie fit.

Can this be washed?

Absolutely machine washable. I suggest using the delicate cycle and a wool detergent if you want to take the best possible care of the garment.
