A technical blend of natural and synthetic fabrics goes into making the Sphere range ultralight weight, comfortable and versatile. This breathable, quick drying long sleeve tee is ideally suited to warm conditions and intense activities.
An ultralight merino T-shirt for warm-weather travels and hot days close to home, the Sphere Long Sleeve Crewe is as versatile as it is comfortable. The Sphere features our soft, comfortable and moisture-wicking cool-lite™ fabric, a blend of natural TENCEL™ with our jersey corespun fibers. Corespun uses nylon threads wrapped in merino wool for the ultimate combination of next-to-skin softness and durability, while remaining highly breathable and odor-resistant. Offset shoulder seams eliminate chafing when you’re traveling, hiking or commuting with a backpack.
Icebreaker have blended several fabrics to produce the Sphere. This lightweight, high performance long sleeved top is ideally suited to warm conditions and intense activities due to the benefits from the different fabrics involved. With over half the material still being merino wool you get all the benefits from it which include the excellent breathability, high wicking and amazing odour control. In addition to this there is a blend of natural Tencel fibres and synthetic nylon to make the tee fast drying, more durable and still soft and comfortable under changeable conditions.
This tee is super comfortable and works really well even when you're pushing hard in warm conditions. The long sleeves help keep you covered up and protected from the sun. This is a great top for outdoor activities in the summer but it also performs really well for indoor activities like cross training and gym sessions. The seams are offset to work well with a full pack which points to the original uses of Icebreaker merino baselayers but hey have certainly come a long way since.
