Athletes have a lot of different clothing options available to choose from. A wide assortment of different price points, clothing material, and other aspects must be considered – and you may have to test out different items to see which ones work best.
During a conversation with a couple local cyclists, we started discussing favorite active sports clothing companies. A slight tangent later, and we were discussing merino wool, and whether it's actually legitimate... or just hype. If you're not familiar, here is a brief overview:
Benefits of merino wool (per clothing company Smartwool):
Breathability and moisture management
Natural heating and cooling
Strength and resiliance
Also, hat tip to clothing brand Icebreaker, as they have a super neat (and interactive!) explanation behind the science of merino. I'd highly recommend checking it out.
