Our View – Woolpower Lite Long John's Men:
For ultimate comfort and minimal risk of rubbing and irritation, the Woolpower Lit Long John’s are hard to beat. The unique design with only one lengthwise seam and no inseam means there is virtually no chance of annoying seams causing problems. Add in the smooth elastic waistband with knitted-in logo and you have a pair of baselayer leggings that will keep you warm or cool without you noticing you’re wearing them.
No man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool which is naturally anti-microbacterial and therefore doesn’t smell. It also keeps you warm if you get wet as the wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight in moisture without even feeling damp.
The Woolpower Lite Crewneck, as all Woolpower garments are sewn by Woolpower seamstresses in Östersund, and the fabric is knitted in Norrköping before that. The same seamstresses sew the entire garment from start to finish and when the garment is ready, they sew their own nametag into it. That’s why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower undergarment and the quality is there to be seen.
