No better or worse than a fleece vest - but at least fleece is easier to clean!

Wool likes wax.


honestly, you could probably use a nice wool cloth to buff your ski's, like you would use horse hair brush.

You'd have to make sure it was a more abrasive wool, and not a fine wool. 25+microns.

I don't recall getting any wax on me while scraping my ski's. I got wax everywhere else though. heh.

Merino wool is so superior to fleece for a base and mid layer. In fleece you're hot or cold. Merino regulates temprature many times better. Generally I work in cotton.

Thanks for digging up this old thread, I'd almost forgotten about it.


Generally I work in wool with a cotton top, since that's what my slacks and shirt  are.
