Good quality merino tops in the TOPMAN sale. I got a shortsleeve and a v-neck.

Good spot, thanks for passing it on.

All we need now is a little less ice and a little more water (unless we're talking drinks, of course).

A different part of the planet yet +1 fan of Marino wool.
Wool is perfect insulation trapping warmth of bodies preference. Works wet or dry. I haven't the ability to afford a cag yet but an old Marino sweater under a spray jacket serves me well. Keeping wind from blowing away the warmth is key hence the huddle of sheep.

No - sheep huddle together for protection when they see you approaching with wellies on and a wicked smile on the face :-)

Maybe ;)
But in Australia we tend to brag with national songs about much better different animals such as
" tie my kangaroo down sport, tie my kangaroo down. "

First merino top I bought I wore for a whole week crossing the Monadhliath by bike, from Carrbridge to Fort Augustus (the last bit almost 750m downhill - one of the biggest in Britain). I was amazed that it didn't stink even a little bit at the end of that.

(Assumes you wash twice a day: once when you get up in the morning and then immediately you arrive at your campsite for the night, before you cool down and can't face the cold mountain streams).

In summer it's easy to do laundry as you go but at other times of the year it really helps not to have to do that.
