Merino wool woven in a 2-ply weave that is approximately a 9 oz. weight that is a super 120s, 140s and 150s weave are the best fabrics as they breathe and hold their shape.  A good wool garment is like a thermos, keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

It does the same thing for the merino wool sheep.

There are many grades of wool, it is selecting the one that is durable, hold its shape and will always look good over time.  It is a natural fiber.  Merino wool, genetically has lanolin in the fiber, next to the skin, is very comfortable.
