Why a Wool Tunic Is a Great Baselayer and Midlayer For Winter Activities
Wool has a bad reputation, but it’s actually an amazing baselayer and midlayer for winter activities. This is because wool can be breathable, highly warm and super light weight! This makes it the perfect choice for a technical piece of gear that is also a pleasure to wear.
Historically, wool clothing was very common in the Viking world and is still a popular choice for costuming events and reenactments today! The wool we use in this tunic comes from recycled wool that was reclaimed and resuscitated, avoiding the need for a lot of water, energy and chemicals to make it.
The fibers in wool are small, and they can absorb a great deal of moisture without feeling heavy or clumpy, like most synthetic fabrics. They can also wick away sweat, so they are excellent at keeping you dry!
They are a natural insulator, allowing tiny air pockets to trap body heat and keep you warm. This is especially useful on cold, damp days because it allows you to stay comfortable for longer.
This insulating property is due to the fact that wool fibers are very thin, and they can form very fine air pockets. When you sweat, the moisture is absorbed by these tiny air pockets and is then released through evaporation. This is much more effective than most synthetics, which are thick and can’t trap as much heat.
These air pockets help keep your skin cool on hot days and warm on cold days, making it a very versatile fabric. It’s a great alternative to synthetics because it is more environmentally friendly and it can be used for a wide range of activities.
Merino wool tunic products are highly odor resistant because of their natural anti-microbial properties. They are also extremely durable and can resist even the harshest elements, such as rain or snow!
We recommend hand-washing this item. This will help to maintain the integrity of the fibers and the shape of the garment. This will also help prevent it from shrinking, sagging or stretching out of shape as often happens with other sweaters that are not made from wool.
It is a very sturdy and well-made garment that is a favorite among our customers. It will last you for years to come and it’s very easy to care for, so it will be a great investment!
This garment is also a great addition to your wardrobe if you’re planning on traveling abroad in the future. It can be easily taken on and off, and it’s lightweight enough to be worn in air conditioning while you’re traveling.
The hem of this tunic can be tied around the neck to form a collar. This will add a touch of detail and give it a more formal look. It is embroidered along the bottom hem, at the neckline and at the cuffs to tie the look together.
In the past, wool tunics were worn by both men and women. The men wore them over their trousers (left) or over their skirts. The women wore them over their kirtle, or undergarment. Depending on their status, they may have worn a long cloak over their tunic.
