WAZZIE WOOL LONG SLEEVE
Our original Wazzie Wool is a wonder. With exceptionally high New Zealand Merino, and some added stretch, it's the perfect baselayer. It works hard at moving sweat and keeping you cool on any distance run, but is equally good at insulation and trapping body heat when you need it. A classic crew neck is combined with thumb holes to make up the sporty details.

I absolutely love this top. It is soft and drapes so nicely. I'll wear it out on Friday night with friends and then to run in on Saturday morning...and then again to my group workout on Tuesday night!! I have broad shoulders and big boobs and this top fits so great, unlike some other O tops that are a bit too tight. I'm 5'7, 32DDD and wear a size 6 top. I also really love the length of these sleeves, my hands are always cold, but I can ditch the gloves a lot when I wear this.
I love this shirt, it is exactly what I need for winter running in Upstate NY. It's not too thin, not too thick, warm without being bulky, and wicks away sweat so I don't get cold in the winter. It's a great winter fabric! I also love the blue color. In my opinion it runs a little large (I am 12 in most tops, I returned for a size 10), and I usually layer with a tank underneath.
I have the wazzie wool base layer from previous years, and supplemented with this long sleeve 2019 edition in Douglas fir, thinking they would be the same. They are not. This one is a lot looser fitting compared to previous years. The material also feels slightly thicker. That's totally fine, but if you are expecting it to fit similar to the ones you have from before, you may be a little disappointed (or, you may just want to consider sizing down).
In the cooler and rainy weather this fall this has been the shirt I reach for first every time - the fit is great, it's light but warm, and the watch opening in the sleeve is genius. However, I wore it during a trail marathon and the fabric pilled like CRAZY where my hydration vest was rubbing against it. It turned almost white in that spot. (I have it in BB blue) It seems to be mostly superficial damage but it doesn't look very nice!
