Live this more than I thought I would

I never give 5 ⭐️, let me start with that. I have multiple merino wool shirts, from various brands. The Yushu is more comfortable and has a better fit than any others I have. Faced with all couple of well worn pieces I looked at their new versions, and they’ve changed. The Yushu is my new go to. I’ll consider the Yardang when you introduce charcoal grey or black.

So warm, but smallish

This shirt arrived during a heatwave so I haven't been able to test it out, but it is nice and feels light but warm. I am typically a small, bought a medium, and it barely fits over a t-shirt. I look forward to testing it out more when the weather cools this fall.

Nice and warm

I love the fabric and construction of this shirt. My only complaint is that it is a bit more scratchy feeling than I had hoped. Other than that, it is very warm. It seems to take a few minutes for the fabric to trap the warm air but, once it does, it performs well..especially for highly aerobic activities. It it form-fitting and I love the styling. I would definitely buy another.

Best garment for winter hiking

I love my warm top. The cut is excellent! I have recommended it to my friends to wear on cold icy days when hiking in the mountains of central Virginia.
