Outlier Does Tie-Dye

I love the idea of a merino tie-dye tee and if I have faith that anyone can do it, it’s Outlier:

“It’s no secret that we think our pure 17.5 micron merino is a gem on its own and makes for the best damn t-shirt we’ve ever worn. So we took a little trip at the studio and hand tie-dyed a small batch of them using natural indigo to make the best damn tie-dyed shirt we’ve ever worn. Made in the Bay Area with New Zealand Fabric and hand-dyed at the Outlier Studio in Brooklyn. We hand-dyed a small batch of 30, and due to the nature of the process, each piece is unique.

A note about the dyeing process:

We took our Near White Ultrafine Merino T-Shirts, wrapped them up and immersed them in natural indigo dye. When the shirts are removed, the indigo oxidizes creating a permanent bond with the merino fibers. The shirts are then treated with a dye fixative, then washed with a special detergent to remove any extraneous particles and finally hung to dry in a sunny corner of our studio. Since they’re hand dyed, there will be variation in each of the patterns.”

Before my duffle bag with all my clothing and cycling apparel was stolen in SF (die, bastards!), my Team Dream Team Bicycle Team Bobcat shirt was going to be a summer staple. Bobcats are cool because nature is metal and I love pocket tees. Or, if front-graphic tees are more your style, why not pick up a “Woody” edition:

“Meet Thomas “Woody” Wood, proprietor of Golden Saddle Cyclery, cycling coach, former messenger, US Olympic mechanic, Master Track National Champion, new dad, and all around good dude. This tall tree took a spill mountain biking and now has a rather large accumulation of medical bills that need to be paid.”
