Best Merino Base Layers Ever

Learning everything from their friends and experts at Taylor Stitch, they are CIVIC and building some pretty exceptional yet uncomplicated apparel that works on the go—whether to and from work, on and off airplanes, or just running weekend errands. 
Merino Wool Underwear & Socks
Merino, have you heard of it? No, not the famous quarterback from the 90s. The Wool. You know, the soft kind from Australia. Exactly—the fabric used in outdoor gear everywhere. Everyone loves Merino wool.  Wool in general has many benefits.  Merino is a special fiber from the wool category.

It's softer than the dated yarn found in your uncle's sweater and is the result of countless millennia of natural selection from a unique four-legged companion—the Merino sheep. The individual fibers are oh-so-fine, itch-free, incredibly odor-proof, magically temperature-regulating, and surprisingly fireproof (we tested it, and it was wild).

This company decided it was about time they borrowed the world's most advanced renewable fiber from their aspirational peak-chasing, backpack-wearing, campfire-making friends and make a considered collection of Merino essentials for the metropolitan lives most of us lead every day.

Learning everything from their friends and experts at Taylor Stitch, they are CIVIC and they are building some pretty exceptional yet uncomplicated apparel that works on the go—whether to and from work, on and off airplanes, or just running weekend errands. Because no matter where you spend your time, you can't beat the sheep.

Put simply, Civic makes Merino Wool essentials for your every day—each one sewn to take you further.

The BASE collection is the core of CIVIC. This collection of garments act as your foundation. The collection consists of the following:

The Antoni Tee 
The Antoni Tee
This is the best tee we’ve ever worn. Wear it around the city, take it traveling, run in it, wear it every day. Merino won’t fail you.
MSRP: $55.00

The Merino Boxer

Merino Wool Underwear
These boxers are the first thing we put on after leaving the comfort of our beds. They're light, soft and undeniably breathable thanks to nature's most advanced renewable fiber, Merino Wool.
MSRP: $55.00

The Merino Sock
Merino Wool Socks
This pair of socks is designed to hold up from morning to night. Truly odor-resistant, Merino fibers carry an alkaline charge that attracts the acidic molecules in sweat, thus neutralizing unwanted odors. 100% Mercerized Merino for added comfort and breathability combined with a nylon heel and toe for durability will guarantee you can wear these socks in—and not wear them out.
MSRP: $22.50

A few of the benefits of Merino wool used in clothing.

Merino fibers are alkaline. The bacteria from sweat that causes clothing to smell is acidic in makeup. Acidic bacteria is chemically drawn to the alkaline Merino fibers, leaving skin less prone to the build up of body odor.

A breathable garment is critical to its function. Merino fibers are extremely effective at moving large quantities of moisture vapor away from the body before they turn into sweat. As moisture vapor is drawn away from skin, it is able to evaporate into the air, leaving you much drier.

Merino wool comes from Merino sheep. Once each year sheep are shorn for their fleece. The fleece is then separated, graded and taken to market for mills to buy in order to produce a variety of products, including their CIVIC line. Not all of the fleece makes it to market however, some falls by the wayside. As the Merino fibers break down in the soil they release valuable nutrients like Nitrogen, a crucial element for soil health. Even when left behind Merino continues to be of benefit.

This is just a few of the many benefits of merino wool.
