I really like the colours- makes for a much more interesting top than the usual. I found this came up really small compared to other merino outdoor tops I’ve bought- just surprised that no other reviewers have said it was true to size. I’m normally a size 8 , 55kg with narrow torso, so I ordered a size S, my usual size - but I couldn’t even get it on, so exchanged for a size M. IoMerino we’re very helpful and handled the exchange quickly. The size M has just arrived, still a bit tight, but wearable, though I prefer a bit of room in these tops and to allow for shrinking after washing - seems ridiculous to get a Large, but I might have to do that next time. Have some of them been mislabelled? Loses one star for the sizing.
Hi there Judi,
With the sizing of our Mongrel items, they are part of our 'Contact Fit' range, and so are designed to hug very close to the body.
You won't have to worry about sizing up to allow for shrinkage thankfully, as our wool has been superwashed, and so doesn't shrink.
All the best,
I’m a size 6-8 and bought this in a size XS which is just the right length for me - I’m 162cm tall/5 feet 3 inches. Not too loose, not too fitted, just right, and the Merino is a nice weight. Some Merino tees are too thin and are closer to underwear than teeshirts. This is a good mid-weight.
I bought this in the red (chili) and I like it enough to be considering buying another one or two in different colours. My first iomerino tee wont be my last!
Great hoodie, comfortable and warm!
This jumper is going to be my new best friend, even in Australian spring/autumn (or Melbourne summer!).
In Norway at present - well and truly minus- and it performs wonderfully as a layer, or a quite-dressy top indoors.
I'm really pleased with the quality, and it's NOT made in China!
I've been searching for high-waist (check) medium-weight (check) merino wool (check) bootcut (check) leggings, and these are perfect. The only thing that would make them better would be a phone pocket. They are soft and don't stretch out or bag-- even after multiple wears. I will purchase ioMerino again, for sure.
These are comfy, I'm happy. In terms of sizing I went with a size L as a size 12 normally and I think that works okay -- though if you're on the slimmer end of that size you might prefer a M for a more snug fit.
