A beautiful merino wool layer for busy days on and off the bike

Functionally, merino wool is the most beautifully soft and moisture friendly natural fibre there is. It works to move perspiration, but also keeps you warm and fresh. Paired with a Rapha base layer, the Breton Sweater is a perfect mid– or outer–layer for commutes and active days where you need exceptional comfort, breathability and insulation. The sweater has a fully fashioned construction for a great shape and fit.

Stylistically, the Breton stripes, worn by early pioneers of road cycling such as the magically named Hippolyte Aucouturier, was originally popularised by artist Paul Gauguin (adopting the work clothes of Breton fishermen) and then in turn Pablo Picasso, and other style icons like Brigitte Bardot. So there’s plenty of romanticism as well as functionality in this wonderful garment.

At the end of each sleeve, a double layer ‘signalcuff’ features both hi-vis and reflective yarns, which can be revealed to offer added visibility when riding in low light. Simply turn back the cuff to reveal the hi-vis bands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the re-design! I love the longer, slimmer cut of the new Merino Bretton. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first Rapha So comfortable and classy looking, I love this sweater. It is surprisingly loose - I have a large bust and usually wear medium in tops, and the medium here is quite loose fitting - but the cuffs and waistband fit well and I liked the oversized look, so I decided not to exchange for a small. I have washed and dried it once and it came through just fine. It keeps me warm and is work appropriate. Love it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great style but can bobble a bit I got this for my other half as she was always pinching my morino jumper (also rapha) and she does really like it. Only critique would be that it needs to be harder wearing and not bobble so fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality and good styling. Very good quality sweater and fits well. Nice colour. Found sleeves to be a bit long but love the detail of being able to roll cuff to reveal reflective band and colourful wrist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the color combination. The material is soft although a bit over size for me but still love it.
