We all know that layering is important for winter weather comfort, but that said, the song isn't wrong - it really is all about this most important of layers. A good base layer should be close fitting, slightly compressive, and extremely breathable - it's the first place where your temperate and sweat can breath out, or get trapped. If your base layer isn't breathable enough, you will start to get wet, which increases your chance of chill or even hypothermia in extreme conditions.
Fortunately, Krimson Klover base layers have you covered for any cold conditions that ski season throw your way. Here are just a few technical features that set our offerings apart from the rest:
Seamless Construction – some of our pieces use a special method that eliminates all or most seams, creating a very comfortable, compressive fit around your body. This comes in handy because the more compressive your base layer, the better your body can increase bloodflow rates and regulate your temperature. Also, compression serves to support your muscles so you can take more trips up the lift with less rest in between.
Moisture Wicking –This feature is important because as soon as your skin itself gets damp or wet, that is when the chill sets in and lowers your core body temperature. Both our seamless and illustrated base layers are excellent in this regard. All of our base layers, both seamless and illustrated are excellent at letting moisture out while keeping warmth in.
Naturally Odor Controlling Fabric – While we might not like to think about it, our base layers are the first line of defense for staying fresh during a day of winter fun. Merino is naturally anti-microbial, which means that those pesky little stinkers stay far away from your fabric – not just for a day, but for the duration of your base layer ownership. Years down the road, it will be as pristine as it was when you first put it on.
Sustainable Fabrics and Manufacturing – Our merino wool is sustainably sourced from farmers who treat their animals ethically, so no worrying about where your base layer comes from. We support small, ethical, women owned/operated knitting factories who create our gorgeous garments with care, so know that you’re also empowering people around the globe with your purchase.
Apres Ready – When you’re finished for the day, our base layers are the perfect pieces to grab a drink in. From our Illustrated to our Seamless collection, all of ours are designed by local Colorado artists who gain inspiration from the wild mountains of this amazing place Krimson Klover calls home. After all, the mountains are calling!
