Product Care 


Merino wool is a delicate fiber and requires more attention than a synthetic garment.

Wash
It is safe to machine wash Merino Wool under a gentle cycle with cold water. Wash with other Merino Wool products of like colors. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners and do not dry-clean.

Dry
Tumble dry on low heat or lay flat to dry. MERINO WOOL WILL SHRINK if not cared for properly.

Great product!! I was skeptical of all the hype about merino wool... but it is all true. These were extremely lightweight, but did a great job with maintaining body temperatures. Used during September early archery elk hunt. Did 6 days strait of hunting/hiking. Temperatures ranged from 30-70 and we hiked anywhere from 10-20 miles daily with about 3k elevation changes. I was never uncomfortable, wore either the ascent shirt, apex hoodie, and sometimes the kelvin light down jacket (no longer being made) with it depending on how the temperatures were looking. Even more impressive to me was that the base layers really did not smell at all. Im sold on it, will highly recommend to everyone. I hope Sitka will continue to produce more merino wool products, such as a t-shirt and more mid layers.

I think Sitka is really onto something with the Nylon/Wool combo. The quick drying property of nylon and the odor resistant property of wool work really well together. BUT no thumbholes for a $140 baselayer?
