Under an icy blue sky, and through clouds of their own breath, a brave many endure the cool autumn morning and ascend the Madonna del Ghisallo climb. The damp road is dotted with brown, orange and red leaves, fallen from the Walnuts that are native to the area. The crowd swells as the day awaits its climax - a blur of history to be written on the slick descents after the decisive climb. Here and now, however, it's nothing more than a low hush of conversation and the rustle of trees swaying in the chilly breeze. The quiet is respectful in a manner fit for the inside of a holy cathedral, however, it's outside, on the road next to the chapel, that the worship will pass. Walking over to the lookout, we trace the road with our eyes as it carves down to Lake Como below, the serene destination of the day's pilgrimage.

Our classic wool jerseys are cut to be more fitted than a club cut, but less aggressive than an Italian race fit. These jerseys are also cut longer than a true race fit to accomodate those who want to size down in order to achieve a true race fit. The knit wool has a very accomodating and resilient stretch and the jerseys will tighten slightly in circumference after the first hand wash.

Hand wash in cold water with minimal wool-safe soap. Squeeze out as much water as possible without wringing the garment. Lay flat to dry in a warm, dry place (preferred), or gently drape the garment from the center over a clothesline in the sun. Do NOT put it in the dryer. Note: Harsh sunlight will fade some colours over time as is common.
Refreshing your garment: Wool garments don't need to be washed after every single use because the wool's lanolin is bacteria resistant. Less washing is the most effective way to reduce associated environmental impacts of our clothing. Instead, hang your jersey in the gentle evening sun after your ride or refresh it after wearing by hanging it in a steamy bathroom. It will be surprisingly odour-free and ready for your next ride.
