Desoli Baselayers - 100% merino wool

Desoli is our most high performance base layer. The superfine 17,5 micron merino wool does not only feel amazing against the skin, it also retains heat better than any other material without any sort of clamminess. We highly recommend that you help your skin out with a pure merino wool base layer.

  • Fit: Athletic fit with backdrop and thumb loops
  • Material: 100% super fine mulesing-free Australian merino wool
  • Origin: Manufactured in Lithuania 
  • Fabric weight: 150 g/sqm

Why merino wool?

The skin is the largest organ in our bodies. It is our protective layer, it regulates our body temperature and its thousands of nerve endings is quite literally how we feel the world around us. That is why a merino base layer might be the most important of all performance garments. Much like the skin, it has thermoregulating qualities, meaning that it helps to provide warmth when you need it but it also helps to cool you down if you get overheated. 

  • Effective vapor and moisture management
  • Naturally antibacterial and odor free
  • Mechanical stretch without stretch fibers
  • Next-to-skin comfort thanks to super fine wool
How we work with naturals

Closing the loop

By keeping the wool pure without blending in synthetics we preserve the natural qualities of the wool and also achieve a fully circular product. These worn out base layers were composted in our garment compost at Rosendal Gardens in Stockholm.
