WendyBartter said:Would be good if I could take advantage of what you suggest Mike but I can only wear cotton for various reasons but the layering does work ... I just don't embrace cold weather, makes me ache too much!
That's a shame.
What I omitted to say was, merino wool doesn't itch, not one bit, not like normal wool.
I've used merino wool as part of night wear when winter camping.

Especially the Merino sheep!
