By Paul James Knitwear


Product Details

High-Performance Perforated Long Sleeve Top With Thumb Holes. Made from heavyweight (286g) 100% extra-fine merino, Kratos is a long sleeve fitted crew neck training top with thumbholes, designed for everyday training and active days outdoors. Taking its name from the Greek god of strength, this practical insulating layer is designed to endure extreme temperatures, adapting to sub-zero climates or even the hottest of summer days. With functional perforations under the arms and across the centre back, this layer is designed to deliver the full benefits of the merino fibre, shielding you from the elements and wind chill in winter, or functioning as a breathable, moisture-wicking and UV protective base in warm weather.

Wash care

Thanks to its antimicrobial properties which make it resistant to odour-producing bacteria, your merino activewear will not need to be washed as regularly. We recommend quick washes in the sink with cool water, and spot cleaning any stains. You can refresh your garment between washes by gently steaming it.

Hand wash* with gentle detergent, wool, or baby shampoo
Lay flat to dry on a towel
Apply a gentle iron with a slow steam
Do not tumble dry

*Why we use hand wash only merino wool
Machine-washable merino wool is treated with a heat-resistant plastic, which cracks as it is washed and tumble dried. Aggressive washing damages merino, causing the wool to pill more, lose its shape and appear worn quicker than caring for hand wash only fibres. Overall, choosing hand wash only merino wool means items last longer and they’re more environmentally friendly.
