Fabric Sourcing & Sustainability

80% Merino wool with 20% polyamide added for extra durability and shape retention. To get the most out of your base layer make sure you wash on a delicate cycle with a max spin of 400rpm, and consider using a Guppyfriend Washing Bag for extra protection and to prevent microfibres escaping into the environment.

Perfect Base

My Eddy Base Layer is excellent for layering when the weather is cold but, when it's just a bit cool, the shirt is perfect by itself. It looks good enough not to hide under other gear. In spite of being made mostly of wool, it is comfortable to wear; none of the scratchy feeling some wool fabrics have.

Great for exercise particularly cycling on a cool morning

I bought this as a base layer for cycling and is perfect. I wanted it relatively close fitting so went for small I’m 6ft and 38 around the chest and is a good size. Keeps you warm and wicks away moisture very well. Would definitely recommend

Comfortable and Functional - The Perfect Base Layer

It's difficult to put into words just how impressed I am with this base layer. To give my review context; I work in outdoor retail and the Eddy Base Layer in my opinion is just as good if not better than some of the more well known outdoor brands I sell and at £65 RRP so much better value for money! I was desperate to compare an Eddy Base Layer to other base layers I own so I bought this for running and after it's first 10 mile run it's perfectly balanced.

The merino wool blend of 80% makes it softer and more comfortable than synthetics and most importantly it's anti-bacterial so I can wear it all week without washing it. The synthetic element means it wicks moisture and drys faster than 100% merino wool. I chose the long sleeve because I like to roll my sleeves up or down to regulate temperature, unlike synthetics the I find the Eddy Base Layer keeps me warm at the end of a long run. It's comfortable when wet such as in a random thunderstorms which I found myself running through on that first run. My experience has taught me that merino base layers are incredibly versatile. The Eddy is no exception It can be worn during intense activity and casually down the pub. The colour I bought was Blue Marlin and i think its simply stunning.

Sizing - I thought it would be worth mentioning that I usually wear a medium, The Eddy in a medium fitted great across the shoulders and chest but was slightly too short in the body and sleeves so I exchanged for a large and now its perfect.…

My go to cycle top...and everywhere else

I commute about 80 miles a week on the bike and love merino as it doesn’t get stinky and is just comfortable. This top doesn’t have the back pockets etc. like you’d normally buy for cycle wear but fits really nicely, doesn’t flap about and doesn’t make me feel like a try hard. I’ve got several of the merino tops from Finisterre and they’re good for a run or an evening out 😀 - worth the investment and thoroughly recommend.
