Lusso in Italian means "luxurious" and we can't think of a single word that better describes how this pullover looks and feels. The Lusso is an authentic expression of world renown Italian craftsmanship and New Zealand merino wool.
Merino wool is one of the most comfortable materials you can wear. Why? Because merino’s incredibly fine, lightweight fibers draw moisture away from your skin and evaporate it into the air, keeping you comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. The superfine fibers feel soft against your skin and naturally resist odors, so you stay feeling fresh throughout the day. The polyester pile on the inside dries rapidly, while the wool on the outside absorbs the water vapor to let it slowly evaporate into the air. This combination of pile and wool offers a thermal comfort that no other product can match. The poly on the inside also stabilizes the fabric so that it can be machine washed.
