Finisterre Super fine merino baselayer

Our review

The softest merino on the market, and it comes at a great price with major eco credentials too
Skip to view product specifications

Eco brand Finisterre have developed this base layer from the finest and softest pure merino wool we’ve ever worn – the fibres are a tiny 17.5 microns in diameter – and that means it’s incredibly lightweight too.


It has a simple body-hugging cut with crew neck, and a good long length means it stays tucked in. During cold, hard rides the base layer performed faultlessly, soaking up sweat but keeping us warm without getting all whiffy – that’s the joy of a garment like this.


Merino’s natural antibacterial properties make this base layer spot-on for all-day epics or multiple fast blasts. It’s a bargain too because it’s worth every penny.
