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.

- merino wool / spandex
- thumb holes for added warmth
- responsibly sourced
- absorbs and wicks sweat
- naturally water repellent
- machine wash, tumble dry (line dry optimal)
- 25.5" body length (size 4)

Great base layer, but see through

I really like this piece, but it is a little thin and not as warm as I expected it to be. Still makes for a great base layer (I've worn it under windbreaker jackets or under a vest). It's also really see through so I would have to wear a light colored bra or something over it. Just doesn't seem like it's worth the money...I normally wear a size 4 and found that this was too big.

Has anyone experienced the shirt pilling? I absolutely love this shirt, but it has little pilling balls all over it!

Thanks for sharing your review! We will reach out from to see how we can help.

love it! want more colors!

My favorite long-sleeved shirt by far. The fit is great (I have muscular arms, so that's a rarity) and flattering. Unlike the polyester running shirts, it doesn't stink after a workout! MASSIVE BONUS! I keep checking to see if this will get offered in other colors (leaf green? forest green? love the greens please!!), as I would definitely buy more! Yes it's expensive and I hemmed and hawed for a month or two before buying, but it was COMPLETELY worth it.


This is an awesome base layer for cold weather. I love wearing it as well when a regular long sleeved running shirt isn’t enough. It is NOT itchy at all. It’s held up to quite a few washes with no issues. Super flattering. I purchased a size 6. I am a 34d and 5’4” and 130lbs. It is not tight.

Perfect base layer

This is a perfect base layer for winter running and skiing. Like other reviews have said, definitely size down. I always wear a 4 in Oiselle but the 2 in this fits perfect!

Love this shirt, this year's version not quite as lovable as previous years

I love the Wazzie Wool Long Sleeve shirt. Nice long arms, great colours and a good weight for winter training. I have several versions of the last few years shirts. This year I got the "purple" one and although the fit is still great (long sleeves, fitted but not tight in the body, my usual large fits well, 5' 10" and 150lbs) there is just one thing not 100% about it. This version, and this one only, smells like wet wool when it is wet (fresh out of the laundry or after being worn). I can smell it when I am wearing it if it gets wet....not the nicest thing. Still a great shirt to wear around "casually" and the other versions are fine, no wet wool smell.

New favorite

I love this shirt! It is the perfect base layer for working from home in my chilly basement. The shirt is soft and the fit is great. I did size down to a 6 and still have plenty of room.

Runs large

I have bought size 4s in this same shirt in past years and for some reason they made the sizes bigger this year. The arms are a tad looser, but the underarm chest area has significantly more space. SIZE DOWN when you buy this!
