Combining the form-fitting ethos of Icebreaker's Anatomica collection with ribbed styling and corespun fabric. The Men's Anatomica Rib Short Sleeve Crewe is equally stylish, comfortable with excellent performance. Ideal as an undershirt or worn alone on trail runs, hikes and extended travels, the Anatomica features our lightweight 180g/m² rib corespun fabric, which uses nylon fibers wrapped in soft, breathable merino wool for durability and strength that retains next-to-skin softness. Icebreaker also included a touch of Lycra for active stretch, and flatlock seams to eliminate chafing when you’re on the go.
Icebreaker has been pioneering the use of merino wool in technical clothing since its birth in 1994. The merino is one of the world’s most ancient breeds of sheep, favoured by manufacturers for its tough but incredibly soft wool. Using cutting edge construction techniques, Icebreaker has adapted the wool into a system of layers ideal for the outdoors, performance sports, and the city.
Sustainability is at the heart of what Icebreaker do. They're not bothered with creating the latest technical fibre for their garments; nature has already created the perfect natural protection against scorching summers and freezing winters. By putting the environment before profit, Icebreaker have created a profitable sustainability through a balance of ecology and economy.
Icebreaker merino garments are soft and non-itch, warm in the cold and cool in the heat, extremely breathable, and have a miraculous ability to warn off odour. Icebreaker have adapted merino wool into a system of lightweight layers. Wear a next-to-skin layer in warmer weather, then layer up for insulation in the cold.
