Great as a foundational layer in cooler weather, the Woolpower LITE crewneck serves as an ideal complement to other Woolpower layers or functions as a thermal layer during aerobic activities in colder climates.
Crafted from 1x1 rib knit with contrasting light green seams, the long-sleeved Woolpower LITE crewneck boasts curved lengthwise seams for an optimal fit. Raglan seams on the sleeves prevent chafing when carrying a backpack, canoe pack, or hydration bladder.
The Woolpower LITE fabric is a blend of superfine merino wool (19.5 microns) and nylon, providing a soft, smooth, and stretchy feel. It effectively wicks moisture, combats odors, and resists bacteria buildup. Unlike traditional wool, merino wool is non-itchy and can be comfortably worn directly against the skin.
In contrast to Woolpower's original line, the LITE collection lacks terry loop knitting on the fabric's interior, resulting in a lighter-weight garment. This weight makes the LITE collection suitable for highly aerobic winter activities like cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, as well as for use in transitional seasons (spring or fall). It's also an excellent choice for those seeking a lighter base layer for warmth and comfort.
All Woolpower products continue to be manufactured in Sweden, each featuring a seamstress' tag with the maker's name, ensuring a top-quality product with reliable performance.
The Woolpower LITE crewneck is machine washable in hot water (60°C) and is designed as a unisex garment.
