ACRE: Merino Faroe Pullover Hoodie Nov 26, 2014




I can’t go on any trip without taking this hoodie, especially when touring or camping. The Faroe is my favorite Mission Workshop / Acre apparel piece and for good reason:

“The Faroe is an essential piece of the ACRE apparel system. Constructed using soft, lightweight Merino wool that can be worn as a next-to-skin base layer or as a simple hooded pullover. Merino wool naturally regulates body temperature in both hot and cold environments, resists odor, and stretches with your body. The Faroe is designed to perform over a wide range of temperatures and conditions and makes the perfect layering piece under any of our waterproof breathable jackets.

This edition of the Faroe is made with 18.9 micron 190g/sm Merino wool with added core filament nylon for strength and durability.

Made in USA.”

    I’m curious how well the nylon improves its durability. I bought most of my 100% merino pieces (not from MW) about two years ago, and they all seem to be developing holes now.

      I’ve had a Faroe for longer than two years and it has 0 holes.

      Merino is great, but it doesn’t hold up well with friction. Nylon helps beef it up, which is why a lot of merino wool sock manufacturers (Darn Tough, Point6, etc.) use nylon in the heel and toe area.
