I am a bicycle commuter in Minneapolis, MN, US, and I ride about 12 km to work every day from late March to late November. We are cold climate. I wear this under my helmet down to about 0 degrees C and it is perfect. Could be just a bit longer to cover the earlobes, but it's still a 5 star product. Below 0 C I need two layers, but this is perfect for most of my cool/cold weather needs. Of course merino wool keeps the rest of my body warm on these rides, so I'm happy!
So thin it can be worn under a sunhat on cool sunny mornings, or under a beanie or balaclava when it's really cold. I wish I had it in Antarctica.
Also just fine on its own of course. Another winner.
I bought it for my husband, who loves it. It is so fine, warm and very comfortable
Just used this for a couple of hikes in Tibet last week. Will be using for Lavaredo ultra trail race in a month's time. Very light and very warm.
If your looking for a Natural Fibre Skull Cap for Winter ... Look no more ... Excellent IoMerino !
While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability.
It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.
