As of Jan 2020 Bands will NO LONGER add length (for both sleeves and hem).
Consider sizing one size down to adjust for the amazing stretch of the fabric and get a slightly trimmer look. If you are between we recommend sizing down.
The Adult Relaxed Fit Raglan is cut to drape on the body as opposed to hugging your curves. If you are between sizes, consider sizing down.
Finished measurements are the garment lying flat and un-stretched. Measurements are made from the underarm to hem. Banded hem will NO LONGER add length.
The HumBird [ Merino x Tencel Collection ] is made with jersey fabric. It has a fabric weight of 200gsm (grams per meter) and is an ideal material to use for year-round comfort. Both Merino and Tencel™ are known for their breathability, moisture management, anti-bacterial properties and being gentle on the skin. These materials are combined together to make an outstanding fabric that is comfy and environmentally responsible.
More on Merino: Our merino is made using the Schoeller EXP method. EXP stands for “EX-Pollution", which describes its avoidance of pollutants during the anti-felting treatment process.
Merino jersey that is considered "easy care" (can be laundered without fulling) is traditionally processed with the use of chlorine and often coated in a polymer (plastic) finish.
In contrast, the EXP method uses salts to keep the wool ecological.
