Svala Merino Extreme baselayers have a 2-layer construction: the inside is moisture-wicking polypropylene and the exterior is warm Merino Wool blend with a bit of polyamide added for durability. This design keeps the skin always dry and warm: moisture is transferred away from the skin to avoid "evaporation cooling" even when you stop moving. The natural anti-bacterial properties of Merino Wool keep the garment fresh day after day.

All seams are flat to prevent pressure points and chafing. Thanks to its long fibers, Merino Wool doesn't itch as ordinary wool often does.

Size info

These are not ordinary T-shirt sizes - pay attention to get it right! Beginning from the small end, the sizes run a bit large e.g. if you normally wear a medium, pick the Small Svala. However, the sizes grow in 4 cm (~1.57") increments so the larger sizes from XL upwards are smaller than you would expect.

The recommended chest circumferences are true to size, following those you will get a fit that stays against the skin as a baselayer should. The measurement laid flat from armpit to armpit is pretty much half of the recommended chest size e.g. a Medium (102 cm) is 51 cm from pit to pit.

So if you don't know your chest circumference for sure, just lay a nicely fitting shirt on the table, measure it from pit to pit, multiply by two and compare. Note that the knit is stretchy.

Materials and care

Made of: 75% Merino Wool, 22% polypropylene, 3% polyamide. The inside layer is moisture-wicking polypropylene and the outer layer is SuperWash and anti-moth treated Merino Wool.

All dyeing and finishing chemicals meet the ÖKO TEX 100 standard. All the Merino Wool is mulesing-free.

Thanks to its antibacterial properties, Merino Wool is odor-resistant and can be often just aired instead of washing. The product does not require washing before use.

When it is time to wash, use the wool program of your washing machine, preferably with a wool-specific detergent. Shape when moist.
