Turtle Longsleeve - Elephant
This transeasonal longsleeve is an easy year-round staple due to its unique merino tencel composition. Merino is a favourite natural textile - keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Tencel provides durability and is capable of wicking moisture three times faster than merino alone, so when combined they create a soft and incredibly versatile fabric. This super fine stripe will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe, making it perfect to wear by itself or as an under-garment in the colder months.
- Close fitting longsleeve
- Merino tencel blend in a super fine stripe
- Thumbhole detail at the sleeve hem for extra length around the wrist
New Zealand origin - 66% Merino, 34% Tencel. This fabric was knitted at Nick's Fabrics in Otara, Auckland, when their knitting machines were still in use. It is very rare to find New Zealand made fabric these days so we feel very lucky to have found this. Merino is naturally breathable, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It is moisture absorbent, hypoallergenic and creates an anti-microbial environment, meaning it doesn't retain odours easily so can be washed less often. Tencel is capable of wicking sweat three times faster than merino alone, and also makes the fabric more durable and softer.
