This pattern is made to fit the stretch of the mxt and merino-spandex therefore no sizing adjustments for fabric need to be considered.
The Base Layer Tee is a fitted pattern. It is perfect for those that prefer a fitted look or are looking for a base layer. If you would like a slightly less fitted look, please size up.
I did not size up in the photo shown in this listing (picture of woman with chest measurement of 36" in a size medium shirt).
Note that the length from armpit to hem is 43cm (17"), which is generously long. If, however, you still need more length, you can add it when ordering.
The HumBird [ Merino x Tencel Collection ] is made with jersey fabric. It has a fabric weight of 200gsm (grams per meter) and is an ideal material to use for year-round comfort. Both Merino and Tencel™ are known for their breathability, moisture management, anti-bacterial properties and being gentle on the skin. These materials are combined together to make an outstanding fabric that is comfy and environmentally responsible.
More on Merino: Our merino is made using the Schoeller EXP method. EXP stands for “EX-Pollution", which describes its avoidance of pollutants during the anti-felting treatment process.
Merino jersey that is considered "easy care" (can be laundered without fulling) is traditionally processed with the use of chlorine and often coated in a polymer (plastic) finish.
In contrast, the EXP method uses salts to keep the wool ecological.
