The Women’s Merino base tee Designed to be worn as a Tee-shirt or as a highly insulating base layer, the highly versatile Dannah Women’s merino base Long Sleeve tee is made from Fine micron 190 gram merino fabric to keep your body at the perfect temperature in the outdoors. A great natural base layer for prolonged use in the outdoors.
In cold weather, its crimped (wavy) fibres also contain millions of air pockets that lock in body heat to keep you toasty, Our merino uses moisture absorbed from the environment to generate heat (a process called “heat of sorption”) this usually occurs as you place them on.
Quick Tip: when you take your spare merino out, dry out as much as possible, i.e. Store in a airing cupboard, then place in a sealed bag. When you take out the merino and put it on, the process of heat of sorption is increased and you will have a nice fuzzy feel as you start our activity.
Women’s Merino base tee pulls moisture vapour to the surface of the fabric, where it evaporates before the vapour turns into sweat. It can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture before you even start to feel wet, and it dries fast.
Our merino has an exceptionally high warmth-to-weight ratio. The fine, lightweight fibres give you all the warmth of a heavy sweater – without the bulk
Synthetic fibres feel clammy because moisture vapour can escape only through holes in the fabric. But with Icebreaker merino, the fibre as well as the fabric breathes to prevent you overheating
Dannah merino resists odour naturally, and can be worn for days — even weeks — without washing.
