When it comes to a lightweight shirt for summer activity, perhaps wool isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Yet no matter the time of year, a merino wool shirt makes the perfect breathable and moisture wicking baselayer – like this one from Woolx.
Woolx has quickly been making a name for themselves with their 100% wool products, taking on leading brands such as Icebreaker and Smartwool. Their Merino Wool Shirt is made from 100% Australian Merino Wool, soft and stretchy with a weight of 160g/m – light enough to remain cool and breathable in hot weather, yet help regulate body temperature in cold weather. Sweat is wicked away to the outside of the shirt, where it evaporates, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in colder weather.
Merino Wool is also antimicrobial, which provides odor control and keeps it smelling fresh. WoolX claims it can be worn several times without needing a wash, and also boasts that it can be machined-washed and dried–which is pretty remarkable for a wool shirt!
The Woolx shirt comes with an athletic fit, and in an array of colors. If you’re looking for a lightweight, extra-comfy and versatile shirt for outside, hiking or the gym, it will get the job done.
