Neck warmer, bandana, helmet liner, beanie, face mask, ear band, wrist band, ankle band, a tasteful neckerchief for your pet…
Call it what you want, (we call it an superfine merino neck warmer), but this incredibly versatile bit of gear is warm, UV protective, anti-microbial, and even flame retardant. We never leave the house without ours.
Well, sometimes we do, but we usually regret it.
The Kepler range uses beautiful, superfine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.
With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.
We use 100% natural New Zealand merino from non-mulesing farms.

Product Care Information
The better you look after this merino garment, the better it will look after you. Give your Kepler a long, happy life with these tips: Hand wash your merino in lukewarm water, or gentle machine wash. Darn any holes as soon as possible so they don’t grow. Avoid snagging, vigorous machine washing, putting your finger through the fabric, and hungry moths.
The top is really lightweight, soft and totally breathable which is ideal for a day's riding as I felt both warm and "airy"|my Alpkit Merino wool layer whist riding was really comfortable|Great quality, fit and features
The Alpkit Kepler (RRP £29) comes in both short- and long-sleeved versions and provides a toasty base for any layering system
Merino wool base layers are normally the warmest, and as long as they are ethically produced you can feel happy wearing a natural fibre. I wear either my Alpkit Kepler (RRP £29) or my Howies short-sleeve base layer (RRP £45) pretty much all the time. They look great as well as performing brilliantly in all but the warmest weather. Synthetic base layers dry faster than Merino, but Merino retains its warmth even when wet
I love the design of this women specific base layer top. It looks as good on its own after a hard day of climbing as it does at the crag under all your layers. The people at Alpkit have clearly thought about every aspect of this garment and tested it out to create a beautifully designed and functional garment that is perfectly fit for purpose
