There are only a handful of companies selling NuYarn and i was lucky enough to have one sent to me by relatives in New Zealand. I paid for it btw.
I am a fan of merino base layers and i have quite a few. However, i know that it’s not for everyone. Some cannot stand the feel of wet merino.
The thing is that this new merino yarn is different. Very different. It feels very different.
On the label it says it’s a hand made product and comes with a guarantee for life. So that is certainly good as i have quite a few holes in my Icebreaker tee.
NuYarn merino, independent testing results.
It’s spec. is 185g/sm fabric and is 91% Merino and 9% nylon.
A bit creased but i have photographed it literally straight out of the bag.
Sizing is generous and with the stretch you definitely don’t want to opt for one that may be too big.
The sleeve width is again generous, great for rolling them up but a little too loose at the cuff for my preference. Length is long as a base layer should be.
What did surprise me a little was that the side and shoulder seams are not flat lock.
Two colours available, my grey one and a blue. I would have preferred the blue but they didn’t have my size in stock.
Cost $NZ 139.00 which is £57.58p at todays conversion rate.
Shipping was free to our relatives house in NZ and then to post it to UK it cost $NZ17.00 or £7.00.
Not tried it in the field yet so i cannot tell you if it performs as it is supposed to. ASAP.
