Dartmoor Base Layer

Dartmoor Base Layer

MADE IN ENGLAND

New 100% Merino Wool Base layer

Our Dartmoor base layer will keep you running whatever the temperature.


Made from super soft merino wool, it combines traditional British knitwear expertise and craftsmanship with Italian skills and innovation in woollen yarn production.


We believe that merino wool is perfect for running base layers because it naturally wicks sweat away from the skin and regulates the body temperature in all conditions.


Dartmoor is available in Raven Black, Pebble Grey and Night Sky.

The Story Behind the Dartmoor

The Story Behind the Dartmoor

FINDING THE PERFECT YARN


When it came to developing the Dartmoor base layer, we were keen to find production in England. We were delighted to find a small historic factory in Leicestershire that had exactly the right experience and know-how to make it.


As long-time runners, we know the importance of a great base layer during the colder times of the year. Yet so many base layers these days are made of horrible synthetic fabric. We really wanted to create a merino base layer that was soft enough to be worn against the skin with absolutely zero sense of itch. In order to achieve this softness, we selected a superfine Italian yarn from a specialist mill known to be of the finest quality.


After testing a few different yarns, we plumped for the one with the softest feel even though technically it meant that it would be a “hand wash only” piece of kit.


PUT TO THE TEST


Before even starting development, we were running in different test tops made from the different yarns so we could be sure that it was exactly what we were after. It was only after putting in the hard miles in all test tops that we were able to select the perfect yarn.


NAMED AFTER THE FAMOUS MOORS


Having both run and hiked on Dartmoor on family holidays, the name Dartmoor seemed perfect for a top which could keep you running in this wild, desolate part of the world.
