I've not had a water fight with your daughter (to my knowledge). So I can't comment on this specific case, but I can say that I've worn my MECO top for 2 weeks and not been able to noticeably smell a pong on it, Where as a day with any of my synthetic tops and I tend to not want to be in the same time zone...You know everyone says that Merino doesn't retain smells? Oh really...
Sweat? Maybe but after my daughter was using the hose on her car and splashed me with it today (totally on purpose, the cheeky monkey) I noticed that my new Merino t shirt from Aldi started to smell like a wet Swaledale ewe.
Lanolin type smell.
Generous on the T shirt.@demographic how are the Aldi sizes?
+1I personally don't like wool because it dries too slowly. It's not a huge issue when we are talking about a thin t-shirt though, so it shouldn't be a huge deal. In summer, you are not going to get the instant cooling effect that you get from a synthetic t-shirt because the evaporation time is spread out over a longer period. That can actually be a good thing. In winter, when it's harder to dry out clothing, I prefer synthetic base layers because they dry faster. Cotton is probably not that great of a choice. For the money I would rather go with a simple synthetic t-shirt. If you have the extra money, then you can play around with wool and synthetic shirts and see what suits you better.
