Patagonia Merino 1 Silkweight Crew

$ 70.00

Stay cool and comfortable in warm-to-hot conditions in this 65% merino/35% Capilene fiber blend. Putting the miles behind you on the Lost Coast or threading your way through downtown crowds, this adaptable crew combines the technical merits of merino wool with travel-savvy styling. The lightest of Patagonia's merino baselayer fabrics, Merino 1 Silkweight is made to keep you cool and comfortable in warm-to-hot conditions. Merino is breathable, regulates body temperature and stretches. It's wonderfully soft and naturally resists odor. Patagonia's is responsibly sourced from the grasslands of Patagonia. They slow wash it for softness and shrink resistance, without the use of chlorine, then blend it with 35% Capilene polyester (100% recycled) for durability, faster dry times, and moisture transfer superior to that of 100% merino. The set-in sleeves and offset shoulder and side seams lie smoothly beneath pack straps; elastic thumb loops keep your sleeves in place. Machine wash cold; machine dry at low temperatures. Fabric is bluesign approved.
