WOOLPOWER Layering Garments - Tired of being cold? Here is the answer!
Woolpower garments are the warmest, most comfortable long underwear we have ever personally worn, period. They are absolutely perfect for our cold, wet northwest weather. Woolpower is made with Argentinean Merino wool, a very fine and highly crimped wool that offers exceptional benefits. Woolpower's unique knit material, Ullfrotte Original, is made in Ostersund, Sweden, and consists of a blend of 2/3 fine Merino wool and 1/3 synthetic fibers with a myriad of small, terry knit loops that trap body heat. The combination of the merino wool's natural properties and the knit loops make Woolpower garments comfortably warm, itch free and moisture managing. Up to 80% of the material actually consists of air, which means that the material has an excellent capacity to insulate body heat. You will keep warm and stay dry no matter if you are standing still or moving around.
Also, being wool, it not only keeps you warm even when it is moist, but also won't smell, even after long use (great for extended trips!). The garments can be machine washed in hot water and machine dried without shrinking, and they are very soft and naturally conform to your movements. Do yourself a favor and try some.
The 200 gram weight tops and bottoms are the best for your first layer next to the skin. If you will be active this is often enough. Very cold conditions or standing in colder, waist deep water for extended periods of time can require more than one layer. We've tried two layers of 200 weight, one layer of 200 weight and one layer of 400 weight, and one layer of 200 weight and a pair of fleece pants. They all work great. The key is the first layer of Woolpower right next to your skin.
