Scratchy, heavy, and uncomfortable: these are common misconceptions about wearing wool. Read on to learn what Alexis discovered while product testing the Run: Balance Pullover as an athletic and technical fabric. Hint: it involves the word magical.
Forecast = rain. Merino wool = dry and cozy.
Let me start by saying that keeping warm is a high priority for me, especially during the winter months. Curling up by a roaring fire is my idea of pure bliss. So you can imagine how much I like the idea of running in the rain: www.notverymuch.com.
Don’t get me wrong, I am full of gratitude for rain; it nourishes the earth, smells divine and creates a unique and dramatic ambience; an ambience I most enjoy whilst peering through a window with a cup of tea in hand. This being said, I decided to try out our new Run: Balance Pullover to see if it could help get me outside, despite the cold, rainy weather.
what I loved about it:
- it’s surprisingly soft with a zero itch factor.
- it has great breathability
- the natural fabric has a rich and refined quality, giving it a sophisticated look
- it stays warm even in the wettest conditions - magical!

after wearing it more than once
Now that I have worn it a few times, I can honestly say that it didn’t itch at all. Without the bulk of a sweatshirt , the 100% merino wool pullover kept me perfectly heated on chilly mornings. I can’t wait to try this on the mountain, where dryness and warmth are so important. Hello après ski hangouts!
If you are like me and are cautious to try new fabrics, I dare you to try this on – it’s as cozy as a hug and as cool as James Dean. It might even make that 5:30 a.m. run downright jump-out-of-bed-worthy! Okay, that was an exaggeration. But at least you’ll be warm…and ultimately, that’s all that counts.
Look for the the Run: Balance Pullover in your local lululemon, and online very soon!
