Think this ColdPruf 92 Men's Authentic Wool Plus Long Sleeve Crew Shirt looks slim, lightweight and comfortable? You might be surprised to find that you're actually getting three layers of cold weather protection every time you put this off-white beauty on your bod.
The fabric (the shade is actually billed as "oatmeal") is comprised of two distinct layers of material. The outer layer is made with 65% ring-spun cotton, combed for added softness, 25% Merino wool and 10% nylon. The inner layer of fabric is made with 100% combed, ring-spun cotton.
Ring-spun cotton is much stronger than ordinary cotton, made to withstand machine washing. The ring-spun process makes the fabric softer and stronger with every machine washing, in fact. Merino wool adds softness and insulating warmth to the mix, while nylon provides abrasion-resisting stretch. The unique, two-layer fabric design actually creates a third layer of warm, insulating air that gets trapped inside. The warm air keeps providing comfort to keep you feeling cozy even in the worst of winter's cold. This garment is designed to take on even extremely cold temperatures.
The rib-knit cuffs create stretchy strength around each wrist, further working to seal out cold air. Even the tail has been extended to provide coverage when you're bending, stretching and sitting. Flat seams and a tagless label design make every inch of the ColdPruf 92 Men's Authentic Wool Plus Long Sleeve Crew Shirt smooth and soft against skin. Think it's cold out? Better get ColdPruf, and get ready for the day.

better to spend a little extra to get something else...
The inner layer is 100% cotton, so you lose out on many of the benefits of merino wool. The cotton stays wet against your skin and doesn't have the same antibacterial properties of wool. If you buy these, you'll have to wash them everyday. Alternatively you could spend a little more per item, buy a fewer number of pure merino undershirts, wash them less frequently and have a warmer, more comfortable wardrobe.

Happy to find these...
I was disappointed to find that Duofold has quit making their original two-layer underwear; but then very pleased to learn that Coldpruf (Indera) has picked up the ball and produced an identical product every bit as good. The inner cotton layer is comfortable against the skin, while the outer layer's wool provides plenty of warmth. The only negative for me is that I preferred Duofold's grey wool look; the Coldpruf wool is as white as cotton (but I can live with it). I now have four weights of underwear (3 cotton, 1 cotton/wool) from Indera, for year-round use. A great American company.
