There are four essential items that will cover the bases all year long. A sleeveless shirt, a short sleeve shirt, a long sleeve shirt and leggings.
The sleeveless shirt can be worn as the first layer all year long. It fits easily under anything. In winter it provides core warmth around the vital organs. In summer merino wool/silk under summer clothes keeps the skin dry even in humid weather.
The short sleeve shirt covers the shoulders. It can be worn under mid-layers with short sleeves or long sleeves and even as an extra layer over the tank. Those who run warm feel comfortable with short sleeves even in cooler weather. Check children to see if they are warm enough by feeling their hands and feet. If their hands and feet are warm then the torso will be warm enough.
The long sleeve shirt can be worn on its own when the weather is above freezing but once it drops below freezing a tank or t-shirt base layer underneath is important. The long sleeve shirt is designed to be form-fitted so that other layers can be worn on top easily and comfortably.
Lastly is the essential legging. Base layers under clothing are essential for children and adults once the temperature goes below 10 C or 70 F outside. Children playing outside and on the ground need extra layers to keep them warm and dry. Adults need cozy warm base layers while outside with little ones.
Base layers make the best pyjamas. They are warm and allow the wicking of moisture away from the skin for comfortable sleep. Perfect for day and for night.
The four base layers have you covered for any weather. Warmth and Weather carries a wide variety of merino sleeveless, short sleeves, long sleeves and leggings in a variety of colours and styles to suit everyone.
