Icebreaker Unveils New Women’s Activewear & Travel Clothing [First Look]
MoreIcebreaker wear? Yes, admittedly we love it so much, we just. Can’t. Stop. Talking about it. BUT, if you’re a lady (or gentleman who prefers soft, frilly clothing), you’re in luck! Icebreaker has unveiled a new line of women’s activewear and outdoor/travel clothing – its lightest, finest weight of merino and first-ever travel shorts made of an innovative merino/cotton blend.
Icebreaker Willow Line of Merino Wool Travel Clothing for Women
The Willow Line is billed as tissue-weight fabric – made from ultralight 120gm featherweight merino wool. The new range features a Â¾-sleeve top (pictured above), tank (pictured above), a tunic and a scarf.
With a lightweight jersey construction and a relaxed fit, the series is silky soft, highly breathable, packs light, and is super easy to care for. Plus the odor-resistance of merino means it can be worn many times without washing — cutting down on laundry, especially for travelers.
Icebreaker Merino Wool Wraps & Cover-ups for Women
Also new is a collection of cover-ups including the open-draped Villa Wrap (pictured above), the stylish Villa Cardigan, the cropped Via Cardigan and the longer-length, gently draping Vista Hood. New to Icebreaker’s Black Sheep collection of premium, fine-gauge knitwear this season is the Athena LS Scoop (pictured above), which comes in a selection of strong, seasonal stripes as well as classic black.
Icebreaker Merino Wool Travel Shorts/Bottoms for Women
For bottoms, Icebreaker is further tapping into the trend towards natural fibers by teaming merino with cotton. The 70% merino/30% cotton woven shorts (available for men and women) — combine the breathability, temperature control and softness of premium merino with cotton for strength, durability and shape. And they’re damn near-perfect shorts for summer travel (as we previously attested).
