Official PSIA-AASI Supplier Icebreaker’s Cool-Lite fabric technology combines the natural comfort and breathability of merino wool with Tencel, a natural wood fiber made from sustainable eucalyptus.
The fiber is capable of wicking sweat three times faster than merino wool alone, and is a marriage of fibers made in heaven for those who want to be active while staying dry and comfortable in the heat of summer. If you log in to PSIA-AASI's Pro Offers page and shop Icebreaker products now through July 17, you can apply the code PSIAFREESHIPPING at checkout to waive the $10 shipping fee.
Other Tencel Features Include:
- A Softer Fiber Blend: The Tencel fiber is a round cross-section with a smooth surface that, when combined with the fine soft fibers of merino wool, creates an incredibly comfortable soft fabric with beautiful drape.
- Fast Wicking: Tencel fiber is smooth and dry on the outside and holds moisture in its core, keeping the fabric dry to the touch. The Tencel microfibers wick moisture through the fiber.
- Odor Resistance: Bacterial growth on Tencel fibers is lower than on synthetic fibers, so unpleasant odor is minimized.
- Sustainable Sourcing: Tencel is derived from the wood pulp of sustainably-farmed eucalyptus trees. It’s also eco-friendly, thanks to the closed-loop system where 99.5-99.8 percent of the solvent used to make Tencel is recycled.
For active snow pros this off-season, Icebreaker recommends the Men’s Cool-Lite Sphere Short Sleeve Crewe. Made from Icebreaker’s 130-gm jersey, the core-spun fabric features merino wool fibers wrapped around nylon for added durability and next-to-skin softness and Cool-Lite technology to keep you cool through the hotter days. Offset shoulder seams prevent your pack rubbing when you’re commuting or hiking. It was awarded “Best in Category” by Ultra Running Magazine for wool running tops.
Another warm-weather winner is the Women’s Cool-Lite Meld Zone Sport Bra, which incorporates Cool-Lite fabric for faster wicking, core-spun fabric for enhanced durability, and Lycra for stretch and mobility. Additional features include strategically-placed merino wool eyelets for ventilation, a wide-open racerback with low-cut armholes, and cup inserts for enhanced fit and support.
