The base layer singlet is a fitted pattern. It is perfect for those that prefer a fitted look or are looking for a base layer. The pattern is made for a body shape with some curves.
For merino-tencel-spandex colours consider sizing down one size due to the stretch. For merino-spandex please order the size you measure into.
The most important measurement is your bust measurement. The fabric is stretchy and will stretch a few inches more than the pattern recommends. We do NOT recommend sizing up for the bust due to the desire to keep the bust within the fabric.
Please choose low back or high back (high back tends to keep the straps in place better):
The HumBird [ Merino x Tencel Collection ] is made with jersey fabric. It has a fabric weight of 200gsm (grams per meter) and is an ideal material to use for year-round comfort. Both Merino and Tencel™ are known for their breathability, moisture management, anti-bacterial properties and being gentle on the skin. These materials are combined together to make an outstanding fabric that is comfy and environmentally responsible.
More on Merino: Our merino is made using the Schoeller EXP method. EXP stands for “EX-Pollution", which describes its avoidance of pollutants during the anti-felting treatment process.
Merino jersey that is considered "easy care" (can be laundered without fulling) is traditionally processed with the use of chlorine and often coated in a polymer (plastic) finish.
In contrast, the EXP method uses salts to keep the wool ecological.
