@TomIrvine Thanks for the post!

I, too, find that wool is the best performer in all conditions and that the extra investment in cost and care in laundering is well worth the investment. I'm including some links to a few items you might like as wool is still as high a performer as it always has been, it just might be in a little bit different form than you're used to. If you haven't checked out some of REI's Power Wool items I think you'll appreciated them as much as I do!

REI Power Wool

REI Link Wool Cycling Hoody

and a few of the classics:

REI Wallace Lake Sweater

REI Wallace Lake Midweight Sweater

Unfortunately the last two are on clearance as they were last year's styles. But if you keep your eye out you may find that another brand might bring the style back. 

Thanks for the great topic!
