An incredibly warm merino base layer for the coldest months of the year, the Icebreaker Women's 260 Tech Long Sleeve Crewe in Midnight Navy is a go-to piece for winter layering - ideal for skiing, snowshoeing and other cold-weather pursuits.
Featuring an odour-resistant, 100% merino wool jersey fabric for premium softness, insulation, and breathability, the 260 Tech is a warmer version of Icebreaker’s best-selling Oasis. The gusseted underarms allow for ample range of motion, while flatlock stitching and offset seams throughout makes for a soft next-to-skin feel.
Inspired by nature, icebreaker harnesses the performance qualities of natural fibres to offer an alternative to clothing based on petrochemical synthetics. Merino is an annually renewable fibre that naturally resists odours, keeps you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not, and lets your skin breathe for comfort all day, every day.

We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it.

The Icebreaker Women's 260 Tech Long Sleeve Crewe - Midnight Navy has the following sustainability attributes...
The way that we look after our clothes once we take them home can make a big impact, and this includes how often we wash them. Skipping just one out of ten washes leads to a reduction in total toxicity, lower CO2 emissions, and the release of fewer microplastics. Odour control technologies like POLYGIENE and naturally odour resistant fabrics like merino wool can help to reduce the number of times that we wash a garment by keeping it fresher for longer, in turn making it last longer.
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
Merino wool is a high-performing natural fibre that will biodegrade at the end of its lifecycle, however, sheep can often be subjected to inhumane practices like mulesing if unmonitored. ZQ is the most widely established merino wool certification standard, and follows five principles: the best animal welfare, environmental integrity, social responsibility, fibre quality and traceability standards. Sheep must graze free range, be given their Five Freedoms (freedom from hunger and thirst; from discomfort; from pain, injury or disease; to express normal behaviour; and from fear and distress) and are not subject to mulesing. Note that not all responsibly sourced merino will be ZQ certified.
