Know Your Summer Wool Fabric
While cotton is light and breathable, it’s not ideal for warm weather because it absorbs moisture and holds it next to your skin. For any situation in which sweat is a possibility, you’ll be more comfortable in a summer weight wool, which wicks moisture away from the skin, helping keep you cooler and drier. Not only does wool help keep you cool in summer, but Merino wool in hot humid weather doesn’t wilt or wrinkle like cotton and linen.
Wool and polyester blends are ideal for adventuring, because they combine the softness and natural odor-resistance of wool with the durability of poly. A few versatile, quick-drying pieces of summer weight wool clothing will take you far.
