QOR 16.5 Lightweight Tee

Style # 11531

Regular Price: $89.00

Special Price $40.00

16.5 micron Merino wool is undoubtedly some of the finest and softest on the planet – and because we wove it into a 150GM fabric, it’s also the lightest we’ve ever created. Means this tee is great by itself in hot weather or as a baselayer in cooler temperatures. Wear it every day, all day – it will make you smile. Imported. Merino wool/nylon fabric. S to XXL. Regular fit.
Additional Information
  • Crew neck design.
  • Side panels; no side seams.
  • Flatlock stitching.
  • Soft, lightweight, performance-oriented – this 16.5 is exceptional. The number correlates to the width of the fiber measured in microns. The smaller the better. Our signature 17.5 Merino products are plenty rare as it is, and this tee at 16.5 is even finer - pretty much off the charts.
  • The fabric weight – 150GM – is also exceptionally low (light). While it depends on your level of activity, It could be used as a baselayer or single layer. Weights above 200GM might be more appropriate from late fall through early spring, and while some will be baselayers, most will become midlayers, or even outerwear at the higher weight.
  • Why wear Merino, superfine or otherwise? Because it absorbs moisture vapor from your skin - up to 30% of its weight before it even begins to feel wet. Pulling moisture off your skin gives you a cooling sensation when it’s warm and a warming sensation when it’s cold (we are not making this up). And that same moisture-absorbing property also fights odor because bacteria can’t grow in a dry environment.
  • Made with 87% Merino wool and 13% nylon (Rapt™) yarn. The nylon compliments the Merino’s aforementioned qualities by adding strength and durability to the fibers without adding any significant weight.
  • Shoulder cut cross grain.
  • Reflective logo tab at right front hem.
  • UPF 50+
Washing Instructions
  • Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle - inside out - in cold water.
  • Line dry.
  • Avoid bleach, fabric softeners, tumble drying, and dry cleaning.
  • Unparalleled, lightweight baselayer for any activity you can think of.

I've used all kinds of wool over my life and it itches...me. Not allergic, just have dermatographism and it's irritating. So I put up with it when wool is preferred for certain environments or applications. I usually would put it on over some other shirt.

Inreally wanted to skip several layers and have an all-in-one fabric, especially one with natural odor prevention properties. Did online research on wool and merino wool, other animal and plant fibers, and found that size counts. The trouble is finding wool in similar widths to the softest cotton. The smallest fibers really are affordable only to those with volumes of cash to burn. Try to find 15nm merinor less in a shirt!

I searched and found QOR to have the smallest out there and in a reasonable price range (without having to order the fiber, spin it, create a loom and weave it myself).

Wore this for a bit to test before trip to the Beartooths for an ultralight weight backpacking trip in Spring shoulder season. Temps predicted 13°-65°F with 15-75 mph winds! Few days at home...No itching! Happy days! Was very excited to test with straps on my shoulders.

Wore it three days straight backpacking. Under various other layers, with packstraps and waistband pressure on skin. No itching! Turned out temps from 80°F at trailhead to below freezing at night. Winds 15-45mph. High levels of exertion (snowshoeing at least half the time). Snowed part of the time. This product dried very fast!

Bottom line. I finally get the properties of merino next to my skin. I tried 17.5nm (other manufacturer, not QOR, so can't comment on QORs products in that fiber width). Light too - 5.9oz in Men's L.

Thank you QOR for your 16.5nm creation! Try this if you've avoided wool in general, or higher width merino is itchy to you! I'll likely be adding more colors, numbers after I test for durability.

I've requested manufacturer make a hoodie, long sleeve crew, and consider underwear/long johns in this fiber width! *nudge*

Best all-around t-shirt. Excellent merino blend. Comfortable in large temperature spectrum. Nice athletic cut that looks great. Best travel shirt I've had for those long airplane trips.
Would love to have this design in the heavier 17.5 fabric.

I purchased three of these tee shirts. They are very comfortable and no matter how hot and humid (New Jersey) it gets, l remain cool. I use them for a 6 mile run, and around town. I plan to purchase more. I have two long sleeve as well, and there performance is excellent.
