Going Wool

Over the summer I obtained two wool cycling jerseys, the first as my Team Luxo jersey for AIDS/LifeCycle and the second an ALC edition jersey I bought on the ride. The Team Luxo is from Swobo and it’s fantastic. We were highly complemented on the sharpness of our team this year. The ALC jersey is from Woolistic and it too is great. Last night Keeth (the evil one) showed me a jersey from Earth, Wind & Rider, I’m going to order a couple from them real soon now. I’m going to slowly convert my cycling jerseys over to all wool. I’ll still have a few synthetics around, but the wool is the way to go. They are more comfortable, breath naturally, and actually don’t stink when you’re done riding or after a few days in the clothes hamper. Swobo is also making a polo and t-shirt from the same high-quality New Zealand wool. I can’t wait to try them out. The wool gear will be more spendy for sure, but I think it will be more worth it in the long run. I can carry fewer jerseys on the ALC next year if they’re all wool. I’ll just have to be careful getting near my mom with any of this wool gear as she’s allergic to wool, sadly.
