Wool T-shirt

I really didn’t know what to expect from this Considering it’s at least three times cheaper than other sports brands when it’s sunny you feel so much nicer than Cotton or polyester I also love the ventilated back and stretch panels the cut is great too & not riding up on my back. . Iv not yet tried it out in the field but city life’s been great I’ll definitely buy more & other items from shop

Geht nix über Merino

Klasse Shirt. Ich habe mich wirklich nie schwitzig in dem Shirt gefühlt. Auch für Wanderurlaub mit kleinen Handgepäck super, kann man gerne zwei Tage hintereinander anziehen. Angenehmer Tragekomfort.

Kratzig nicht ideal um es auf Nakter Haut zu trage

Habe das T-Shirt gewaschen mit der Annahme das die kratzige Eigenschaft der Nähte nach dem Waschen verschwindet. Leider ist dies nicht der Fall beim Tragen spüre ich fast jede Naht, was ich als unangnehm empfinde. Hoffe einfach mal das die Nähte durch Abnutzung mit der Zeit weicher werden... Der Halsauschnitt ist für meinen Geschmack etwas zu klein und die Ärmel zu lang für ein T-Shirt. Quallitativ macht es einen guten Einduck. Nähte sind gut vernäht (wenig bis keine losen Fäden) soweit mein leihenhaftes Auge das beurteilen kann.

Neu super nach einem Jahr hinüber

Neu sehr gut, Schweiß Transport funktioniert gut, leider ist es nach einer Saison recht durchlöchert an den Seiten unter den Armen, Stoff ist halt sehr dünn. Im Angebot würde ich es aber wieder kaufen

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 11% Polyamide
  • 89% Wool


  • 10% Spandex
  • 24% Polyamide
  • 66% Wool

Sizing and fit

This T-shirt has a slightly fitted sports cut to help wick away moisture to the outside of the fabric. Choose your usual size or 1 size up if you prefer a looser-fitting T-shirt.


We used a beta-spun yarn structure in which the polyamide filaments form a fine sheath around the Merino wool fibers. This protects the wool fibers from friction and cuts without altering their properties.

Origin of the merino wool

For this product, we only use wool from Merino sheep raised on farms in South Africa that do not practice mulesing. We decided to build a partnership with a group of breeders (Konsortium Merino) to guarantee respect for animal welfare and the environment. This means we have full traceability, which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool. More information: Visit our website

Odor control

The materials used reduce bad odors. Laboratory tested according to the ISO 17299-3 standard. Main fabric: 89% Merino wool Mesh panels and a mesh fabric under the arms and in the middle of the back: 66% Merino wool, 24% Polyamide, 10% spandex.

Reduction of the freezing effect

When you make a physical effort and sweat heavily, the Merino wool easily traps the insulating warm air and can absorb up to 35% of its weight in moisture without making you feel damp, which is appreciable in cold weather. In hot, dry weather, the evaporation of the water in the wool absorbs energy, which cools the body slightly at the same time.

Tip before use

For a softer feel, wash your T-shirt before 1st use.

How to wash your merino wool t-shirt

We recommend that you machine wash your Merino wool T-shirt at 86°F on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent. Dry flat and never tumble dry unless you want it to shrink by 1 or 2 sizes! more information on:
