Merino Wool Items on Sale at Mountain Warehouse

A friend tipped me off about an online sale of merino wool clothing (including base layers) at Mountain Warehouse. It's currently offering free shipping on $50 orders, and there's a code for a 10% discount as well (SIGNUP10%).

I have no connection to this enterprise and have not used its products, but I thought some others might be interested.

There's one type of merino wool socks available as well. Two color options: light gray and charcoal gray.

Oops--forgot the link: Mountain Warehouse

I bought their Merino wool long underwear set for my Iceland trip.
I bought the men's small, as they had run out of women's sizes.
They were really warm, but I did find them a bit itchy, I have to say.
Their socks were not itchy.

Thanks for the report, SJ. I will test the things I ordered here at home to be sure they don't both me too much. I already own a pair of Cold Pruf merino wool bottoms, and they are fine (for me). They feel more like silk than wool.

Over on r/onebag, couple of folks have noted the impact Marie Kondo is having on the stocks at thrift stores in the USA. I can attest to the quantity and quality of items flooding into the local shops like Vets For Success, Goodwill, Youth Ranch, Salvation, Vincent’s, and others. Great bargains can be found on gently used, well cared for, brand name garments made wool, Merino, cashmere, down, and leather. You can also find excellent items in the sporting goods and luggage sections that may surprise you. It’s a bit of a slog but it’s also stimulating hunt.

Please explain, Bogiesan. I like to check out thrift stores where I can (tricky without a car); they've been my best source for travel-worthy lightweight all-cotton blouses.

When I was going to Iceland, I went to the local thrift store and found two men's merino wool sweaters for $3. each.
They were a little big, but fit well over my other layers.
They were perfect for the trip, as where we live it never gets really freezing cold, and buying a new merino wool sweater would have been a waste for me, as I would have never used it at home!
