I like the idea of Merino wool. It definitely works where needed. Also don't want something too warm for on the bike... 

 

Looks like a case of ordering and returning if I'm not happy. Sadly all the cool companies are in CT so trying things on is a pain. 

 

Does anyone know where Gravel & Tour is based though? I can't find them.
