Stay Warm with Icebreaker Apparel {Giveaway}

Here in South Louisiana, you can be in flip-flops and a tee shirt one day, and bundled up in your heaviest coat the next.  Even more challenging are days that start out freezing and by lunchtime, you’re a puddle of sweat.  It’s essential to have easy pieces to layer that will keep you warm without weighing you down.  Recently I was introduced to Icebreaker Apparel and I AM IN LOVE.

I love these faces too!  And they LOVE their Icebreaker tops! Icebreaker uses super-soft Merino wool for its garments.  Why Merino?  Merino is made for extremes.  Keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, Merino wool isn’t itchy like regular wool….Icebreaker fabrics are one of the softest you’ll put on your skin.

Icebreaker was so kind to send me a Long Sleeve Chase Zip top, a Camper Hoody for my son and a Flutter Hoody for my daughter.  It didn’t take much for me to get the kids in them as soon as we opened the box!  All of the garments are well-made, with sturdy stitching and zippers that open and close easily.  Best of all, they are super-lightweight but incredibly warm.  Both of my children loved theirs and have been wearing them constantly since they got them.  My top has become my new uniform while home on Christmas vacation.  It’s super soft and comfy, and the contrast stitching makes it look flattering rather than bulky or boxy.  These items wash easily and line dry, but they are dry in a snap!

The Hoody Flutter is perfect for camping...and it's bright colors look great in the wild! Lightweight but super-warm fabric keeps you toasty.

The Camper Hoody is lightweight Realfleece fabric – nature’s alternative to a synthetic fleece. This is ideal for active kids. It’s super insulating,  yet as lightweight and low bulk as a synthetic fleece but also super-breathable for ultimate comfort without feeling stuffy.  My daughter loves her long sleeved Flutter Hoody made from super-soft, lightweight Merino.  My daughter is super-sensitive to clothes that itch or pull at her skin, but she loved this top and said it was very “snuggly.”  Both kids have also been enjoying Icebreaker Apparel Socks that have been keeping their toes happy.
