Sweet have a new line of baselayers for winter 2015 / 2016. The fabric is superfine 17.5 merino wool in a 200g/m2 weight. 17.5 microns is exceptionally fine so should provide itch free temperature regulation. 200g/m2 is a great all round weight for a base layer – warm but not too heavy. Add in that classic Sweet style and you have what should be a pretty formidable baselayer. The Crew has a trad round neck and really nice looking cuffs. The bottoms are 3/4 cut for comfort with ski/snowboard boots. Both look to have a decent, articulated cut whilst still retaining some style so often lacking in ‘performance’ baselayers.
