Woolpower Ullfrotte Turtleneck Top - 200
Their choice, to keep all manufacturing in Östersund, reduces the number of links to control in the supply chain. There is also a strong sense of values and significant engagement amongst Woolpower employees. The seamstresses quality mark the garments they sew by stitching their own name tags inside them. This creates a sense of pride and responsibility for everybody and the results show in the garments they produce.
The Woolpower Turtleneck 200 in Pine Green has long sleeves and is made from the unique Ullfrotté circular knit fabric with terry loops providing a Merino base layer with excellent insulating and wicking properties. They are supremely comfortable due to the way they are manufactured as there are so few seams and have a super soft and comfortable hems, neck and cuffs.
This top is also a true unisex garment and is in the new Pine Green colour (Pine Green which is very much a military green colour and not the old Green which is rather bright)
Excellent quality shirt
I spent weeks looking at reviews for merino shirts before I settled on this one.
I'm glad I did, it's absolutely fantastic.
I'm 6' with a 42 inch chest and the Large is a nice fit, not baggy, not too snug.
The body length is great with plenty to tuck in and the sleeves are also nice and long, but not ridiculously so.
The zip neck makes venting easy and the zip itself is quality.
The loop stitch terry lining is very comfortable and wicks sweat away efficiently. It wasn't itchy either.
I was wearing it in 5 degrees C and it kept my temperature regulated nicely.
Finally the Pine Green colour is a nice dark olive.
Overall I recommend it highly, I'm very happy.
Thank you Inese Karenika (who sewed it in Östersund, Sweden).
A brilliant base layer!
I wore this base layer all day today working outdoors, it lashed rain, and high winds low temperature, my colleagues were gurning about being cold, but I was nice and warm! Picture is nothing to do with the product, but my cat likes loafing on the merino wool too...
