Patagonia Men's Merino 2 Lightweight Crew
Patagonia's version of the ultimate go-anywhere T-shirt, the Men's Merino 2 Lightweight Crew combines a relaxed feel for hanging out and wool's inherent benefits for going places: soft next to skin, natural odor control and warmth even when wet. Our most versatile Merino baselayer fabric, Merino 2 keeps you dry and comfortable during active pursuits in cool to cold conditions; it's naturally breathable, regulates body temperature, has a great warmth-to-weight ratio, and stretches. Patagonia's wool comes from non-mulesed Australian Merino sheep. It's slow-washed for softness and shrink-resistance without the use of environmentally harmful chlorine, and blend it with 20% polyester (100% recycled) for increased durability, resilience and moisture-management. The raglan-sleeve design and offset side seams lie smoothly beneath pack straps. Machine-wash cold; machine dry at low temperatures. bluesign-approved fabric.

I am very impressed with these. They fit well, are warm, and seem to have sturdy construction. I'm 6'2" and 170lbs and went for the large. The fit and stretch are right on for me. The only thing that could be a little better is the next to skin feel. It feels a little scratchy, but it is mostly wool after all, so that is to be expected.
