Pagosa Springs, Colorado-based Voormi has taken merino wool textiles to the next level by introducing performance synthetic fibers into them – in just the right places. The result is a boost to the already superior properties of merino: low stink, anti-microbial features, natural UV protection, thermal insulation and wicking ability. They call the merger precision blending, and we say it works. In the Dual Surface UL Tech Tee (UL means ultra light),  the use an ultra-fine micron wool-synthetic blend on the inside that’s meant to be next to the skin.

Summers casting flies on the river or winter tours on the mountain. Hot trail runs or as a baselayer under more, the Tech Tee  has become a go-to for casual weekenders to guides around the world.
