way too small per size chart and very short. the material is not bad or itchy. made in mexico
The pros about this are
Love this wool base layer. The cut is excellent--beautifully fitted without being constricting. The wool is fine and breathable. What I love about wool is that it handles sweat without feeling wet, and it's so breathable, so it doesn't start to feel swampy or clammy if you're active and sweaty--whether you're in the cold or you've come inside. It's much more forgiving of temperature variations than the "performance" base layers.
This brand does seem to run snug. I wear a size 6 or 8, and the medium of this fits me like a glove, so I think someone larger than me would find it uncomfortably small. Since the medium is supposed to be for size 8-10, that seems a bit of a liability. I wear wool all the time, almost every day, and I noticed right away that this is itchier than I'm used to. I put a silk tee under it and it cut down on the itchiness, but my arms are still itchy, a little. Still, I'll wear it as a lovely warm base layer, and I'm noticing that I'm warmer than I would be without it. I like the warmth without the bulk, and the black color means that I can wear it with almost anything over it. Even if the long sleeves peek out under the sweater I'll wear over it, it still looks good.
This is a base layer top in merino wool. The fabric is 100% merino wool in a flat thin weave. The construction is 4 panel, with 3 in front (left, front, center) and 1 in back. The collar has ½” ribbing, while the sleeves and cuffs are hemmed 1”. There are no tags in the garment. Washing instructions say machine wash cold, lay flat to dry. The garment was made in Mexico.
This is a very nice 100% merino wool layering shirt for the price! When my wife first put this on, she thought it was a little scratchy, but after a couple more wears, she doesn't feel it anymore. It is extremely lightweight but warm! She's worn it under wool sweaters and it is nice looking and cozy warm. In the frigid midwest, one needs many layers to survive winters! It is machine washable on delicate and needs to be hung dry. I've washed it a few times and seems to hold up well. The only issue she has with this (and I'm sure it's because it's made of wool) is that is attracts everything - lint, animal hair, etc and because it's black, it shows it all! We have cats and she really can't pick them up if she wears this top or else she looks like one of them. All in all, it's a really nice layering piece for cold climates.
You will need to keep in mind that it is made to cling to your body and shouldn't be loose so if you don't like tight or restrictive you might have a problem with it. I think it's just the right amount of snug and I love the material. I can tell that the material will be warm because it got kind of chilly a few nights ago and I thought it would be a good test to wear it to bed but I was up a couple hours later drenched in sweat and pulling it off- keep in mind that it was in the high 70's that night but the air was full of humidity. I give this product a 4 star review because it does appear to be made a bit small and if you have a large bust it will smash the girls a bit. Aside from that it's perfect.
We live where the winters are very cold. I normally dress in layers, even indoors to keep the heating bill down. I’ve never had an all wool base layer before but now I’m hooked. I can wear it several days in a row because the wool airs out nicely overnight and is ready to wear the next morning. It’s super soft, not scratchy at all. I hand wash it in eucalan wool wash and lay it flat to air dry after reshaping it. I only have to wash it once a week or so despite wearing it pretty much all the time. I plan to get another in a different color for next winter or maybe some base layer pants to go with it. I can keep the house a good ten degrees cooler when the kids are at school while I’m wearing this, adding pants I’m sure will pay for themselves.
