A Change in Season: Merino Wool Clothing in Spring

Spring is definitely in the air. Those of us who live in climates that require bi-annual closet changes start to get antsy this time of year. The days are longer, the sun is warmer and we start to dig for lighter-weight clothes. It feels really good to switch out midweight Merino wool layers for microweight ones. Heavy gauge knit hats for lightweight ones. And here in the mountains, average daily temperatures in spring can fluctuate from chilly 20-degree mornings to 60-degree afternoons, which makes for perfect conditions for temperature-regulating Merino wool clothing. Here are a few of the top pieces we can’t wait to pull out of storage.

Microweight Tank Tops: Sure, we wear these lightweight Merino tanks all year, but this time of year we actually start thinking about wearing them on the outside. Featured: Women’s Micro 150 Strappy pattern tank


Microweight Tees: NTS Micro 150 tees are the answer to what layer to bring pretty much anywhere. Lightweight Merino wool shirts pack up easily, won’t stink and will help regulate your body temperature from chilly mornings to sun-soaked afternoons. This season we added some fresh updates to this classic style. Featured: Men’s Micro 150 Combo Tee.


Run Shorts: Those winter legs have been covered up for too long. It’s time to let ’em breathe. Running outside in shorts after a long, cold winter just feels so good. Merino wool blend shorts feel great and perform along with you. Featured: Men’s PhD Run shorts


Dresses: Yes, dresses! Early spring might still involve a sweater or wrap, but that just makes dress season last even longer. Merino dress season stretches from spring into summer and keep us comfortable and looking good from the post-ride campsite to outdoor concerts at the ski area. Featured: Seven Falls Dress


Accessories: So long chunky hat, hello microweight beanie. From chilly outdoor runs to spring cross-country ski trips, light and micro Merino wool  beanies offer the right amount of breathability plus sun protection to the tune of UPF 25+. Featured: NTS Micro 150 Pattern Beanie.
