Constructed with a blend of silk, merino and cotton, the Silkspun Long Sleeve Crew is a lightweight, insulating baselayer, ideal for year round use.
Silkbody have designed their products with the aim of showcasing the natural properties of silk. As a natural insulator, silk provides excellent heat regulation, trapping warm air and maintaining body temperature when you need it, whilst also absorbing excess moisture so you stay dry and comfortable, even under extreme conditions.
In a lightweight yet durable design, the Silkspun offers warmth without bulk whilst retaining its elasticity to ensure it won't lose its shape over time. This super soft, fast drying, insulating and moisture wicking baselayer is ideal for all season use, both on and off the mountain.
I love silkbody clothing and have lots of it. It's really comfortable, easy to care for, dries incredibly quickly (brilliant for travel as it will dry overnight) and it lasts for ever. This top is actually a size too small for me but was in the sale: I'm losing weight so I've bought it for future use. I do think the sizes tend to run a bit small.
Established in New Zealand in 2002, Silkbody designed their range with the aim of showcasing the potential of using silk as a high quality performance fabric.
