I have to thank Jan for her wonderful “Merino Wool Wraps.” I recently returned from a trip to England and France which was amazing but definitely wet and cold. When you travel from New Zealand to Europe or North America during their winter what you’ll find is although its wet and cold outside...inside they have the heat cranked up. You don’t want to have layers and layers to strip off every time you go inside.What worked perfectly for me was a warm waterproof coat and a regular long sleeve top + a “Merino Wool Wrap.” I took a red and black one. Outside I gathered my wrap into a scarf, not at all bulky, and inside I would arrange it back into a wrap changing the style according to what I was wearing adding a touch of class to my travel clothes. I wore them nearly everyday during my month long trip. They were also great on the plane. Small and light to pack but can give you that extra warmth if the plane gets chilly. Merino Wool Wraps have become an essential part of my travel wardrobe.
