Kepler Long Sleeve [Womens] pure merino long sleeve base layer
Breathable and comfortable long-sleeved premium New Zealand merino base layer for demanding sports in hot, cold, wet or dry
Alpine summer, Scottish winter, autumn on the gritstone… Those merino sheep have catering for every climate down to a T.
We use 100% genuine superfine non-mulesing New Zealand merino wool to ensure our Kepler long-sleeved top deserves a place in everyones outdoor layering system.
The lightweight baselayer top is a staple piece of most peoples layering systems. Kepler fits right in there with its excellent performance over a vast range of conditions. Quite simply it is a garment that does many things really rather well. Breathable, wicking, fast drying and famously odour resistant, merino can be worn in the hot, in the cold, in the wet and in the dry.
For all round comfort over extended durations merino is our baselayer of choice.
Thumb retainers in the cuffs stop the arms riding up to expose your wrists to the cold, useful when your activity involves a lot of reaching.
Flatlock seams and an anatomical cut enhance the natural next-to-skin comfort of merino.
The Kepler range uses beautiful, ultrafine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.
With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.
We use 100% natural New Zealand merino from non-mulesing farms.

My first merino top
Any wool has been a no go area most of my life. I was convinced by the 'non-itch' blurb and it is true - I wear this as an baselayer when walking, under jumpers and on it's own as it looks good. MORE COLOURS PLEASE - HEATHER, LAVENDER, BLACK, GREY
Am size 10 and this was perfect
Warm, fast dry.
Good, No smells, it's no fit like short t shirt.
Bought 3 of these for the other half as I was really pleased with the 2 mens versions that I have got already. We had measured her with a t-shirt on, definitely 34". Looked at the size guide - needs size 10. Mine were close fitting so I accepted this and sat back waiting to receive them. They took a while to arrive, a couple of days more than the jacket ordered a day later. When they arrived they were huge on her, so had to go back for an exchange for a size 8. Might be worth putting the measurement on your order and letting Alpkit choose the size.
This is the first time in 10 years of ordering that I have ever had to return anything.
