Additional Information

Story
How do you take something as simple as a t-shirt to the next level? That's actually straightforward, we've been bringing merino performance into t-shirts for years, but how do we go even further? With our Cottonweight Merino T-Shirts we took it a step further, using a clean cotton face to get heavyweight structure and cotton whiteness mixed with the dry thermoregulation comfort of merino. That made for a great heavyweight white t-shirt, but we wanted more, and that meant diving into the messy world of garment dyeing.

Merino and cotton are dyed differently using different substances. To dye them together means two separate dye baths and a high degree of unpredictability as to how everything interacts. Fabrics shrink and skew, labels become unreadable or peel away. But what emerges is often beautiful, it's far less precise than fabric dyed in a mill, but it has far more character as well. Subtle variations in the dye bath create subtle textures and with two dye baths and two types of fiber, these interact to create tonal depth and resonance. These t-shirts enter the process crisp and clean, and leave heavyweight champs, gritty and full of character.

The process shrinks the shirts a full size so please size up from your usual size. The garment dye process adds risk, uncertainty and variation to the garments, this is not a product for the fussy or overly precise. There are risks of fading, crocking, bleeding and who knows what else. Occasionally the process damages the heat transfer labels at the neck and the care labels on the side, so proceed with caution. On the flip side the cotton face and heavyweight makes this shirt tougher then your average merino, perfect to bring merino's amazing natural performance into more rough and tumble situations.
Fabric
Cottonweight Merino Logo
Soft on the skin and opaque to the eye, Cottonweight Merino is a double knit jersey with an 18.5 micron merino inner face and a cotton outer face. The merino inner face is beautifully soft with a cool, dry body climate while the crisp cotton outer face brings the structure, heft and opacity we expect from a heavyweight white T-shirt. Weighing in at 220gsm, it makes for a proper heavyweight t-shirt fabric.
