The Softest Wool T-Shirts

In terms of fineness, any wool fiber that has a diameter of 20µ (microns) or less will feel very soft to the touch.

Below 17.5µ the wool starts to feel buttery soft against the skin.

Here’s a guide to fineness grading:

  • Fine grade (18.6 – 20μ)
  • Superfine grade (15.6 – 18.5μ)
  • Ultrafine grade (15.5μ and below)

These are the finest wool T-shirts I’ve found:

Men’s Short Sleeve T-Shirts — Ultrafine Merino

Men’s Short Sleeve T-Shirts — Superfine Merino

A merino T-Shirt from Outlier — this is softest available at 15.5 microns

Men’s Long Sleeve T-Shirts – Superfine and Ultrafine Merino
