Additional Information

Story
People kept on warning us about how hard garment dyeing is, so of course that made us want to try it out and learn the hard way. We started with our best of both worlds classic, the Cottonweight Merino T-Shirt. The warnings were right, this stuff is hard but also fun and rewarding.

With cotton on the outside and merino on the inside this shirt actually needs to be dyed twice, the two fibers use two very different dyeing processes. The result is a two-tone between the inside and out, and a subtle depth of color emerges from the pairing of the two.

Then of course there is the shrinkage. These things shrunk nearly a full size from how they are labeled, i.e. a shirt labeled Large fits like a Medium. Sorry for that, a lesson learned for us! Well worth it though because these are some beautiful shirts.
Fabric
Cottonweight Merino Logo
Soft on the skin and opaque to the eye, Cottonweight Merino is a double knit jersey with an 18.5 micron merino inner face and a cotton outer face. The merino inner face is beautifully soft with a cool, dry body climate while the crisp cotton outer face brings the structure, heft and opacity we expect from a heavyweight white T-shirt. Weighing in at 220gsm, it makes for a proper heavyweight t-shirt fabric.
