Icebreaker figures they’ve pretty much got their Superfine190 (190 g/m2) long sleeve crew design dialed in. I agree (see my 2004 Staff Pick)! This spring they bring out a limited edition of this thin, superfine merino wool crew with patterns of nature (leaf, vine) designed by a New Zealand artist and dyed onto the front of the shirt. A super comfortable and attractive shirt just gets nicer.
I posted about the Smartwool very light long sleeved crew in a Day 1 dispatch. Ibex also has a similar product; their Woolies rib crew. And an even finer 17.5 micron fabric WoolElite version in their Nelson long sleeve crew for the ultimate in next to skin comfort.
Those of you who enjoy the thermal properties of a thin layer of wool next-to-skin, now have a choice!
