A beautiful and light merino wool layer, at home both 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. Using a lighter weight version of the same yarn used in the popular Merino Breton, the Lightweight Breton Sweater is a versatile layering option for between seasons. The sweater has a fully fashioned construction for a great shape and fit.
The Breton stripes, worn by early pioneers of road cycling such as Hippolyte Aucouturier, were originally popularised by artist Paul Gauguin, who adopted the work clothes of Breton fishermen. Subsequently sported by Pablo Picasso and Brigitte Bardot, the famous stripes signify romance as well as functionality.
