100% Merino Light Hoody C 2022

What's a "C" Product?

Our “C” products are offered at discounted prices because they are old versions, discontinued, or they do not meet our quality standard though they are fully functional.

The Reason of “C”: Spirality

The spirality is the fabric’s tendency of twisting to a certain direction. If this occurs, the garment looks like it is slightly twisting. In our 2022 version 100% Merino Light series, the twisted fabric will be untwisted and restored to a certain degree after the line-dry. However, in some products in Charcoal Marl and Gray Marl colors, the extent of spirality exceeded our standard, and therefore, we categorize these two colors as “C” products and offer them at a 30% discount.
Please note that we are unable to accept a return because of the spirality if used and washed.

Charcoal Marl
Gray Marl

How We Found the Issue

Before the mass production, we conducted the sampling inspection and confirmed that the frequency and extent of the spirality were within our quality standard. After the mass production, however, we conducted the sampling inspection again and confirmed that some products in Gray Marl and Charcoal Marl colors deviated from our quality standard.

How the Spirality Looks Like


      Thin Merino Hoody for Base/Mid Layer

      The 100% Merino Light Hoody can be worn in a wide range of situations: hooded and zipped up when it’s cold, or fully unzipped and sleeves rolled up when it’s hot.

      It is a perfect choice for long-distance hiking and activities in the mountains where temperatures drastically change. It can be worn as a mid-layer with a thin base layer, or individually as a base layer next to your skin.

      We developed this proprietary fabric in Bishu, the largest production area of wool garments in Japan. It is more durable and shrink-proof, and the latest 2022 version is app. 10% lighter with an average weight of 150-155g/m2. The light fabric is suitable even in warm seasons.

      Our lineup of 100% pure merino wool products makes your hiking more comfortable as they help to regulate both temperature and humidity and keep unwanted odors to a minimum.

      Tumble-drying is NOT recommended for this item, as it may cause twisting and shrinkage. However, it can be tumble-dried at your own risk if you do not mind the spirality (twisting)*.

      *It will be untwisted and restored to a certain extent after it is washed again and line-dried.The tumble-drying may cause the shrinkage and the length may be shortened about 2-3cm, but it will be restored after washed again and line-dried.

      A natural fiber, merino wool has wonderful properties such as excellent temperature and humidity control and deodorant performances, but it also has a weakness; yarns are likely to break and develop holes due to abusive use and moth eating.

      For inquiries on repairing holes or products damaged over time, please feel free to contact us from the “Repair” section of the SUPPORT page.

      Needle Felting

      Holes in merino wool cut-and-sewn products caused by thread breakage or moth bites can be repaired by felting, a technique to patch the hole with the raw wool using a special needle. You can repair by yourself, and Yamatomichi also offers felting repair services using raw wool of the same color as the product.
