Why you should buy dhb Merino base layers?
We all associate wool jumpers with the heavy-knit lake district fisherman jumpers but actually – and thanks to the modern technologies – they can be thin, lightweight and, most importantly, itch-free.
On top of this, the dhb merino base layer's inner core is hydrophilic (water loving) while the outer surface is hydrophobic (water repelling), allowing it to absorb a greater amount of moisture before it feels wet compared to synthetic fibres.
They also allow some stretch for added comfort. Basically, it has most of the good qualities of synthetic garments and the comfort of natural fibres. Wins all round.
