Inspired by the simple wool sweaters worn in the early days of Himalayan climbing expeditions, this sweater makes a great alternative to a synthetic mid layer. Made of a super soft 100% merino wool, our Kangtega Crew Sweater offers comfort and warmth for whatever activities you're ticking off the list.

You won't find a better wool sweater at this price these days. I spent a lot of time looking and it's what actually lead to me discovering Sherpa. The extra fine merino wool is incredibly soft and comfortable, and fits like a glove for me. I prefer a slim fit and chose a small, I am 5'10" and weight 150 lbs. I bought one sweater last year and will admit that I haven't washed it once, the wool does a great job at being odor resistant and moisture wicking. This fall (2018) when I saw them on sale for $56 I picked up two more. I'm located in Portland, OR and we get quite a bit of winter rain and these are my go-to for cold season camping and hiking layering. Thank you, Sherpa!
