Why did we choose it?
- Merino is warm, even when wet
- Merino is naturally antibacterial so doesn’t smell; hopefully we can wear it for weeks without washing
- Merino is nice against the skin so we can wear during the day and to bed
- Merino is New Zealand’s national material and Icebreaker is close to many NZers hearts – ie we are suckers for marketing
- Both were on special
Rosie’s 200gsm retails at 99.95NZD, but we got it on special!
Jeff’s GT (150gsm) retails at 99.95NZD, but he bought it at the icebreaker factory store near Auckland Airport
Note: Rosie generally runs colder than Jeff (and most normal people) so decided a thicker one might be prudent.
