Late Fall and Winter running usually have me pulling out different headgear than I tend to use for much of the rest of the year. While I have one Polar BUFF®, that's obviously not enough for multiple runs during the week. But, recently, my cold weather arsenal grew with the addition of a merino wool BUFF®. The name is pretty cool, it's a "tea dye," (since the name is Rooibos Tea), or tie dye, each one unique as they are completely dyed by hand. Awesome! I noticed today after my run, that the parts of the BUFF® that get sweaty wet appear darker than the rest, just like a tea bag that darkens as water first hits it...awesome!!! (Or maybe gross...depending upon how you look at it I guess...)
It is also ecofriendly, "produced with renewable resources following a respectful animal process" that minimizes the effects upon the ecosystem. It "is a mulesing free product" and the merino wool originates from Australia. The merino wool BUFF® offers thermal comfort especially in the 32°F-68°F range, (0°C-20°C). It of course offers odor control, wind protection, and moisture management. Check them out at http://buffusa.com/shop-buff/men/multifunctional-headwear/merino-wool-buff/bb1e0a0a0a.
|The merino wool BUFF® could even be used as a sort of facial wind protection, or for reenacting old western bank robberies.|
