Would you estimate it as a heavy, medium or light weight?

I have some "light weight" merino base layer from Costco, Paradox brand a believe. It was around that price but more like 60%ish merino and the remainder was nylon.

definitely lightweight 100% merino. brand name escapes me right now but not Paradox.

Brand name is Cloudveil. They are displayed loose on the clothing tables and not packaged and in the "stacks."

I found the paradox stuff at my local Costco, only 11% merino content. No luck on the cloudveil, might have to try the new store up the road towards Grimsby.

But they did have 100% Merino CK(I think) V neck sweaters. Not super heavy but might be nice for layering.

This doesn't fit within the posting perimeters of the "Buy, Sell and Trade" forum.

Moving to the "Equipment" forum.

I've got one of those from a couple years ago, and last year picked up another in advance of the first one wearing out. I'd classify it as light weight material. I've had other cloudveil clothing in the past, in my experience it's been one of those under the radar brands that seem to surprise. Although, they're not a shoe company, so probably stay away from a cloudveil branded shoe.

I picked it up yesterday- feels light and thin compaired to a fleece line men's. am hoping it will be good enough over the next 6 weeks to the end of daily football practice and games. Kid is thin enough and freezing between sweating. Bough two so he could layer- vs spending $130 for 260 weave Merino.

Costco Burlington had these this past weekend. They also had thicker v-neck merino wool sweaters that are made in Jordan. Both of these appear to be a good (great) value and both were available in several colours. Photos of both types are below.

Here are a few photos of the ones that are from Canada:

Not merino, but found this: https://www.costco.ca/Bula-Women%e2%80% ... 31942.html
Can also buy the Trail Socks (and they are made by Smartwool- one of my former Scout's dad's owns the company), on line.

Now Costco has online ordering for clothing. Just did a quick check and I see the Cloudveil merino shirts there in men's and ladies. You do need a costco membership to order.
