Meet the LSWBL, or, the "Long Sleeve Wool Base Layer". It's the base layer that might not be. Sometimes. Made from NuYarn merino that combines 85% wool with 15% nylon, it's the best of both worlds when it comes to wool and synthetics. Gone are the precarious downsides to a wool piece: Stretching, twisting, unraveling, and waterlogging. Instead, the addition of a nylon core to the wool yarn gives the fabric all of the odor, moisture, and thermal regulation properties of Merino with increased loft, strength, and lower density.
The LSWBL is a multi-function piece. Off the bike, it's the perfect piece to pair with jeans on a nippy day, and looks right at home at the cafe, work, or around the house. On, it's the start to a cold-weather arsenal right at the core. Like the arm and legwarmers, the LSWBL has reversible cuffs for added style, and is available in the fire red "Rosso Fuoco" color, or the more subdued green "Climbing Ivy".
