Cold Weather Gear for Runners
It might be unseasonably warm lately but we all know that won’t last. Try Merino Wool Icebreaker gear, according to FleetFeetNashville.com it is both soft and warm:
Soft: Traditional wool is itchy to wear because its coarse fibres push into your skin. But Icebreaker merino fibres are so ultra fine that they don’t irritate your hair follicles – so no itching or prickling
Warm: In cold weather, our merino uses moisture absorbed from the environment to generate heat (a process called “heat of sorption”). Its crimped (wavy) fibres also contain millions of air pockets that lock in body heat to keep you toasty.
