View Full Version : Any Thoughts On Wool vs. Silk Underwear for sleeping???
Looking to save a few ounces, is there anyone who has used both.?????
I love my silk tops and wear them every chance I get on backpacking trips. I wear the below item as my cool weather baselayer with a synthetic t-shirt on top, and I sleep in this thing:
A long time ago I used both a silk top and silk bottoms but now I wear merino long john bottoms to hike and sleep in during cold weather. The silk top though is a fantastic item for sleeping or for backpacking.
Thanks for the link tipi, just what i've been looking for!
Silk for sleeping, wool for hiking. It's real nice to have something clean and completely dry to put on for bed.
I really like my Icebreaker lightweight merino wool long johns, for hiking, sleeping, great gear. Ditto their lightweght tee shirts

I like wool for daytime use. I've found silk to be much more comfortable than wool for sleeping, because it doesn't feel as 'stuffy' and wool can [sometimes] be itchy.
