Why I love Icebreaker Merino {and why you should, too!}

I can hardly wait for the Icebreaker Friends and Family sale on Friday. Icebreaker is amazing, and I need more.

Here’s why:

1. It’s wool. Which is natural and sustainable.

2. Somehow, the brilliant creators have made it so it that it doesn’t absorb odors. Yup, no stinky armpits.

3. It’s lightweight and breathable so I can run in it in the summer…

4. …and yet keeps me warm on those 5:30 am runs in the winter!

5. Each piece is cut really well. So they fit nicely, and when something fits nicely I look better. And I like that.

6. Little details: my sweater (which looks a little like this one, but it’s red) has those cool over-the-hand warmers, and it has  a handy low-profile pocket on the arm just big enough for an iPod and a credit card.

7. They last forever. Absolutely worth the investment. But… speaking of investment

8. It’s time for the Friends & Family Sale! While each piece of Icebreaker Merino is a worthy investment, wouldn’t you like to get those awesome items for 50-80% off?

I know, RIGHT?

Last year, I scored Christmas and birthday presents for several people. And for myself! My favorite is a base-layer, long sleeve scoop neck that is PERFECT for running in the early mornings. It normally retails for around $80 I think. I got it for $20! I’m hoping to find another one tomorrow. Oh, and since ZooLights is right around the corner, I need some base layer bottoms as well!

I’m also scouting kids clothes, and a base layer for Brian. Since I love mine so much, I think he would like some, too.

Here are the sale details. If you’re in Portland, Oregon, you should 100% make time for this sale!

    I went this morning, got there nice and early, thank goodness! Just scored $930 worth of wool for myself and my family for $270. We are SET for winter 🙂 Bring on the cold and damp!

    • Excellent!
      I haven’t added up the retail value yet, but spent $120 on a long-sleeve shirt for me, a sleeveless running top for me, 4 pair of merino socks for all of us, a shirt for Brian, a base layer for Brian, and a zip-up long-sleeve top for Anna. Pretty awesome!
