I haven't been in Los Angeles long enough to forget winters spent in colder climes. I can still recall those Januarys and Februarys endured in Massachusetts and Chicago when the only way to survive the walk to The El or The T was to layer long underwear under jeans. If I knew about the Swedish brand Woolpower then, I would have been all over it.
Or it would have been all over me, rather. Woolpower has been making thermal undergarments in northern Sweden since 1972 and have seemed to master the intersection of body warmth and performance (check out these facts about the human body and warmth) starting with Merino wool from Patagonia sheep that's spun, knit, treated, sewed together, and tested. Their base layers are created in different weights that range from 200-800 to meet different climates and needs and have won the endorsement of the Swedish Army who wear Woolpower layers through the bone cold Scandinavian winters. So when the Swedes recite their famous adage there is no bad weather, only bad clothing, I now assume it's because of Woolpower. For a comprehensive online selection of Woolpower in the U.S., head to Westerlind.
It's all about the details: sewers at the Woolpower HQ in Östersund sew their names onto the label of every garment they create.
