Rated 5 out of 5 by Michiganrunner1213 Love this shirt!
I took my new Cresta Wool top for a 4 mile run this morning and I love it! It was 24 degrees and windy. I used a wicking tank under, wicking tee over, and my new Brooks Essential Run III jacket (from LLBean) over. This top performed beautifully! I have sensitive skin and never imagined myself wearing a wool top. No itch at all. Kept me warm and wicked sweat like a champ. It did remain damp afterward so I had to get it off. For reference, I am 5'7" and 145 with an athletic build. Though my measurements are a medium, I often have to size up to accommodate my broader shoulders. This fit perfectly in a medium. It is not super form fitting, yet I didn't find it bulky with my other layers.

I bought the small size for my mother. It fits true to size, looks great, and keeps her warm. I'm anxiously awaiting for their supplies to replenish so I can buy one for myself in XS! Great price for a quality wool base layer - you can't go wrong!

I bought one of these shirts and wish I'd bought more. It is warm, soft and washable. The price is high, but it is a high quality shirt.
I've only washed it twice and hung it to dry, so I don't know about long term, but so far it hasn't shrunk or started to itch. I purchased the XS reg. I am 5' 4", weigh 110 lbs, athletic build and it fits just right. I will buy more if they become available.

Stylish but caused a rash on my both inner arms the first time I wore it so had to return. Otherwise fit was perfect and nice multipurpose top. Unfortunately I cannot wear this material.

Very comfortable, soft, warm wool layer. I like the overall feel. The neck line is just right, not too tight. I am 5'1" and petite. I bought size XS Reg. Just right!

I bought this base layer several years ago and as I had only one set, decided to order both top and bottom. I started wearing the new one so much that I decided to order two more sets. They are fabulous: Warm and comfortable, soft not itchy against the skin, and what I really love, they wick sweat beautifully, keeping me warm and dry. I originally used them just for Nordic skiing, but now they are great for horse riding and working in the barn. I even wear the crew neck on its own as a top, since it is not obviously an undergarment.
I wash them in a reg cycle with warm water and hang to dry. Wool takes a little longer to dry than cotton so give yourself enough drying time if you plan on wearing them.

I really like this shirt. It is warm without the bulk and not scratchy like some wool items. I expect to wear this often for working outdoors, etc. Thanks LLBean.

I bought this about six months ago, and have barely taken it off since. I wear it as a mid layer over a tighter fitting piece, and under a vest for figure skating. I wear it at least three days per week, wash it just as much, and it is holding up well (some signs of wear, but I Really work it out). I do hang to dry to try to prolong its life.
I am 5'5" and 120 lbs. and wear a size small; it is slightly generous (too big to be a base layer).
Ordering a second one to wear when this one is in the wash. I agree with the other writer, please bring us more fabulous colors to wear and show off!

I bought this about 4 yrs ago and loved it. I wear it every day during the winter months. It is soft and comfortable. Not itchy or scrathy. It is like new after 4 yrs. I just bought a set for my daughter. I found them to be generous cut. 5 foot 3inches and I wore an XS, a perfect fit. Love It!

I walk over 6 miles every day. Last year I wore my husbands cresta wool shirts during the cold months of winter. They kept me cozy and they are not bulky. This year I decided to get my own. I love this shirt and now have my own to get through the winter. It washes great in the washer and dryer. I wore my husbands all season last year and they still look good.
