caring for your wool blend C2

Although it's totally fine to wash and dry your wool c2 with your other active wear, we have found a few care details to be helpful in keeping it looking good for as long as possible:
1. The exterior surface of your c2 doesn't like mingling with zippers or velcro in the washer
2. Turn your c2 inside out before washing or drying
3. Using a mesh dedicates laundry bag helps keep it beautiful longer
4. If ironing seems necessary, a steamer or cool iron with a steam setting can be used

caring for your synthetic c2

1. Avoid washing c2 with cotton or other lint shedding materials
2. It’s best to wash synthetics with other synthetics
3. c2 air dries quickly, so save a dime and the environment and let it dry naturally
4. Turn your c2 inside out before washing or drying to protect the outside from zippers and velcro

This is the finest top I’ve ever had: soft and breathable, exceptionally insular but if feels almost like I’m wearing nothing at all. If there were more colors I’d have to have more; wonderful base layer, and the made-in-the-USA craftsmanship is awesome.

Perfect against the skin layer for fall roller ski camp. No sweaty feeling, warm enough for the downhills. I like the length of the body, and the length of the sleeves is perfect too, it’s like a custom fit for me. i’ll update the review when I get to test it on snow.

This is my new favorite piece of Janeware. It’s light weight and is the best base layer I’ve ever owned. If you throw a regular cycling jersey over it, you’re good to about 35 degrees. Will also work great this winter I’m sure. The fit is perfect.

Received my half-zip top today mere minutes before I was scheduled for a night trail run. Naturally, I took it out for a spin. Performed well and was the perfect level of insulation for the 50 degree weather and heavy exercise.

My only complaint (which I have with many similar products) is that it’s a little short in the arms while the torso fits well. Maybe it’s me.

My wife adds that the curry color is a welcome departure from my usual ninja-mode black and grey long-sleeve tech tops.

My husband wears his all the time. I mean, literally, ALL the time. I’m getting ready to order one for myself. It goes without saying, he looks really cute in it!
