Back to the basics with Point6 100% merino wool base layers
Is your sock drawer full of merino wool socks? Great. That’s step 1.
Step 2 is to upgrade your base layers. Maybe you’ve already done that. Maybe you’re a total convert. But have you tried the Point6 base layers? You should. They have flat lock seams and they’re flat-out awesome.
Not all merino wool is created equal. Most companies are offering a blended fabric to offset the cost. Not Point6. These base layers are 100% compact spun merino wool sustainably sourced from New Zealand family farms. That sounds great but what does it mean?
These layers last. By using compact spun yarn that is stronger and more resistant to pilling, they’ve fixed the durability issue commonly associated with merino wool.
These layers act like nature’s thermostat. Mastering a quick transition at the top of a climb isn’t just about removing your skins. There’s a brief window to swap clothing without the chill sets in. Merino wool retains warmth when wet so when you’re fumbling with layers in the cold, you have one less piece to worry about.
These layers keep their shape day after day. The interlock knit with form fit holds its structure so you can spend a week in the backcountry with one piece and show up for happy hour looking no worse for the wear. Because these pieces are also odour resistant.
Point6 keeps it simple and they focus on perfecting the production process. Give them a try, I think you’ll notice the difference.
