The Cristallo is our winter baselayer designed for wicking warmth and next-to-skin comfort for active use. It transports moisture away from the body and dries quick.
Wicking, thermoregulating comfort
This is primarily due to its hybrid Alpine Merino Responsive fabric, which is composed of 78% merino wool and 22% polyamide. The synthetic fibres are enhanced with our proprietary Responsive technology. Responsive is based on a special blend of natural thermoreactive minerals. It recycles far-infrared (FIR) energy from your body, then slowly releases it back over time. This helps you to perform better, recover faster and stay warmer for longer. These benefits last for the life of the fabric because Responsive is an integral part of the fabric and does not wash out.
Innovative knitted construction
The Cristallo has a slim fit with a crew neck and a gusseted sleeve design for greater freedom of movement. It’s made using a special knitting process that spins a superfine 19-micron merino wool yarn around a nylon core. This process makes the resulting fibre not only stronger, fleecier and more voluminous, but also 30% lighter than a comparable baselayer. Its high polyamide content further improves its durability and mechanical stretch properties. Our innovative knitting process makes it possible to produce a one-piece crewneck torso with no irritating seams. This makes it much more comfortable to wear. In addition, the merino fibres have natural anti-odour performance and the fabric is certified as bluesign® approved.
The Cristallo is a SALEWA® Committed product – these products have to meet additional strict environmentally-friendly and sustainability criteria.
