With the advent of even more sophisticated technical wear and textile-manufacturing method, there’s been an “unexpected return”, from both designers and consumers, to natural fabric in recent years. One reason is of course a more eco-conscious consumer base. But another is the issue of comfort. While most technical wear could guarantee protection from the elements. They could not do the same in temperature regulation, breathability, and the myriad of factors that equal to comfort of the end user.
This is why Brooklyn-base OUTLIER used super fine Merino wool in the label’s signature hoodie. Demurred in appearance, OUTLIER made it up with a spacious cut and extra long shirt tail to appeased cyclists of all skill levels. The Merino wool construct does not chafe the skin. Instead, the comfort level equates to that of a cotton jersey. The natural characteristics of it means the ability to adapt any conditions, from chilly morning air to mid-afternoon heat, the hoodie will wick sweat, retain warmth, and be breathable all the same time.
The OUTLIER Merino Wool Hoodie is available in black, charcoal blue, and mid grey. All are for sale at OUTLIER online store and selected boutiques worldwide.
