Ashmei Merino Stretch Hoodie
A luxury Running sweatshirt stylish enough you want to wear it everyday
This is our 2nd version of the Women’s Merino Running Sweatshirt. We have improved the fabric to make it softer, yet harder wearing and changed the hood retainer from having a velcro closure to a new bespoke ashmei button. We have changed the 3 in 1 cuff to incorporate a more casual look without loosing the inner mitt or thumb hole and the gripper hem now incorporates some subtle reflective detailing. We have also introduced a new colour, ashmei grey.
The core performance and features of this piece and the general styling remains the same as the version 1 was a great success for ashmei, selling out within months. The fabric still uses a mix of merino and stretch nylon but we have softened the hand feel while increasing the durability of the material. We also increased the weight slightly.
The result is the perfect mid layer, ideal for 3 season running from autumn through to spring and because we have kept the classic styling and improved the look of the cuff, you can wear this piece après run or as part of you daily wardrobe. We live in ours!
We use merino wool for this running sweatshirt as it’s the only fibre that regulates your body temperature, keeping you warm when it’s freezing or pre-race/workout but cooling you when you start to warm up or conditions change. It also hates bacteria which is the cause for those nasty smells synthetics have after a couple of wears and because it hates bacteria you can cool wash this with normal detergents without the need for special chemical soaps.
Features include a lightweight front zip with chin guard and the “ninja” hood that fits snug around the head so that it stays on the head in strong wind. A zipped secure pocket for your phone, keys or gels and the 3 in 1 winter cuff with built in mitt in case you forgot your merino gloves. We have also added a grippy hem so the sweatshirt does not ride up when running and some subtle reflective detailing to help you be seen at night.
