Womens zip neck top - Ultralight - 170g
Ultra light all season 100% merino wool zip neck top in many fabulous bright colours. Designed to keep you cool and sun protected in Summer. Incredible performance in humid hot conditions but will still keep you warm when conditions chill off. They have the same great smitten zip neck cut but the silky fine wool feels like no other merino product you have ever owned. The tops also have thumb holes to keep your hands warm or the sun off.
I have personally used this top to climb volcanoes and keep the sun off while surfing in Indonesia. I have also mountain biked, run and worn it around town in bright green for a cool look. I also had the CEO of Australian Wool Inovation marvel at the quality of the merino.unisex

Will the wool itch me?
No - new generation superfine merino is super-soft and luxurious to wear, and shouldn’t itch or scratch.
How do I care for the fabric?
Wool is a hard wearing, natural protein fibre and all of our products are manufactured using machine washable yarns. We do strongly recommend that all our garments are washed on a wool specific program, using a Woolmark approved detergent at a maximum spin speed of 600 rpm.
Remember: Never use biological detergents or stain removers on wool, silk or cashmere fibres because the enzymes contained in these products will literally digest the fabric.
Non biological products which contain bleach will lead to progressive fading and may weaken the fabric, leading to holes in the garment.... scary but true.
Can I wash the garment in the washing machine?
For your convenience all of our knitwear is fully machine washable. So many other makes of knitwear are hand wash only; we hope this makes your life easier! Please however ensure you use an appropriate spin speed and temperature setting. Fast spinning can stretch your jersey and temperatures over 40 degrees can matt and shrink the wool. Wool specific detergents are available at all supermarkets and many sell Wool mark approved own brand products. Do not bleach.
Will it shrink in the wash?
No – our merino wool is a stable product, therefore it should not shrink.
Can I iron it?
Yes you can - using a warm iron is fine, but often creases disappear when drying or fall out with body heat.
Can I put my Smitten in the dryer?
No – definitely not recommended.
How long does it take to dry?
Superfine merino dries very quickly. Once washed gently squeeze and hang out to dry. Can be dry in 30 minutes, great when travelling.
Does it smell?
The beauty of superfine merino is that it breathes exceptionally well, thus minimising odour.
What about pilling/bobbling?
During initial wear all knitwear will shed some of its fibres and create small balls on the surface of the fabric. This is normal and a temporary issue and not a sign of poor quality yarns. The small balls that may appear are easily removed with a safety razor or a pilling comb. In time they will naturally drop off during washing and wear.
What's eating my Smitten?
Moths and silverfish both love to eat wool as it is a protein.
If you suddenly discover a few tiny holes that were not there previously, there is a good chance there are moth larvae or silverfish, and they can just target one part of one garment.
Freeze your woollens overnight in the freezer
Keep the moths away. Store your woolens in sealed containers. If the insects cannot lay eggs, they will not eat your clothes. A drawer may not offer enough protection. Cedar chests, and cedar balls have a reputation for deterring moths, but this has not been proven--many people like the smell, however. We recommend that you store precious smitten in a ziplock plastic bag - and even sprinkle with black pepper - as this is also a deterrrent.
Lavender essential oil is the absolute best oil for keeping moths and silverfish out of your cupboards and away from your woollens.
