    I can totally get behind the less washing thing. I really only wash undies and gym clothes after one wash. I find most of my other clothes can go a few wears between washes as long as I don’t get sweaty in them. Aside from that though, I hope they come out with more women’s options. That merino t-shirt looks like it’d be the perfect tee (cooling? wrinkle free? looks pretty opaque…sign me up!)…though definitely not at the perfect price.

    My boyfriend travels a lot for work and is obsessed with wool shirts and underwear. He now packs for a 3 week trip in just a small carry on or backpack! I just wish the prices were a little lower, and more importantly- that more women’s options were out there!

    I plan on replacing my Nearly worn out Daily Ritual black v neck shirt with the wool one. I saw that the Wool& company is coming out with more wool dress styles. I hate laundry and am looking forward to trying these items. I don’t mind paying a bit more if they are durable.

    I agree on the more infrequent washes. Undies, socks, and gym clothes are really the only things that only get one use per wash. My work pants get roughly 3, my tops… maybe 5? Probably more? Bras are a huge variable – if I get super sweaty in them, one use, but I often go way more.

    I’ve never been a huge stickler about these sort of things though so YMMV. I have a sensitive nose though so if something starts smelling even a tiny bit like B.O. – into the wash it goes!
