Additional Information

A lined knit short experiment in the lightweight and dry performance of Runweight Merino.
Runweight Merino Logo
Lightweight and high-performance merino. 17.5 micron merino intimately blended with a thermobuffering and wicking poly, to create a lighter (150gsm) and drier merino jersey for high exertion and hot weather use.

We’ve long been fans of merino. No other natural fiber has the ability to manage temperature, moisture, and odor quite like it, but we were interested in seeing if we could find anything that would work with merino to handle situations where you’re bound to create more moisture than merino can handle. Something that could wick and cool more effectively without compromising the characteristics of merino that we love so much. We honed in on a thermobuffering poly that blends hollow core and channeled polyester fibers. The hollow core fibers are meant to buffer fluctuations in temperature while the channeled fibers wick moisture over a larger surface area for faster drying and evaporative cooling.

The result of combining this is two fibers blended together to compliment the performance of each other with minimal compromise. The strength of polyester allows us to use a lighter merino, resulting in a fabric that is 25% lighter than that used in our Ultrafine Merino T-Shirts, while still having the strength, structure and drape we demand.

In the end, our Runweight Merino brings the lushness and soft comfort of merino along with the performance and dry comfort of thermobuffering polyester. It’s engineered innovation integrated with nature’s finest performance fabric.
