Retro Cycling Jerseys

Whilst times have changes in terms of materials used for cycling jerseys, the style that comes with retro cycling jerseys will live on indefinitely. Retro cycling jerseys are made out of wool, and while that may seem like an unwise choice of material for a top to wear when cycling, it actually has many advantages that people would choose over modern lycra clothing. Some are even made from Merino Wool, a supremely comfortable and fine variety of wool that makes a great cycling jersey.  

Below are just some of the reasons to make your next cycling jersey a retro woollen jersey:

Temperature 

Woollen retro cycling jerseys are excellent at assisting your body maintain and regulate its temperature. There are two main points that explain this: 

  1. When it is hot, it will keep you dry. The wool will absorb the moisture from your body as it is produced, moving it away from your skin and thus meaning that you will be able to regulate your temperature a lot better. 
  2. When it is cold, it will keep you warm. Wool hairs act as insulators by trapping particles of air, meaning that in colder temperatures, wool will keep you warm, making that stop at an outdoor cafe even more enjoyable!

Water Resistant 

Wool clothing can absorb up to 20% of its weight in water before leaking. This is the case because wool scales are small force particles of water to rub off one another and fall away. Surprisingly, this also happens with particles of dirt, meaning that woollen cycling jerseys are actually self-cleaning (to an extent!).

Odour Control

The highly absorbent nature of wool also works with odours. This is because of wool’s natural antibacterial quality. This means that when you stop at a cafe or restaurant on longer bike rides, you don’t need to worry about your scent; this can be particularly beneficial on longer weekend tours where you can wear your woollen retro cycling jersey on more than one occasion.

After a few hours on a bike, odours, obviously, do occur. But woollen retro cycling jerseys can remove the particles, meaning that they can be worn on social occasions as well as gruelling weekend rides.

Less Noisy

Owners of lycra and modern, technical, jerseys will be well aware of the rustling noise that happens when two surfaces meet. One of the joys of woollen retro cycling clothing is the fact that it won’t make a noise, meaning that longer, more peaceful bicycle rides are not interrupted by the aggressive noise usually associated with time-trials.

Comfort

Whilst wool has many advantages, it is naturally considered an itchy material. For retro cycling jerseys, this feeling still prevails; woollen retro cycling jerseys do feel a little itchy and peculiar. However, common use of woollen cycling jerseys and washing them properly will make it less uncomfortable to wear. Having said that, merino wool retro cycling jerseys are nothing like that sweatshirt your grandmother knitted you!

Cool!

Wool was the material of choice for vintage cycling brands so to celebrate the heritage of the sport, fans will wear woollen clothing. Wearing retro cycling jerseys will give you that retro look, in keeping with your bike. 

Not only that, but the high collar and beautiful colours and stitching make them exceptional items of clothing for when you’re not on your bike too! They are incredibly stylish and don’t have the purely technical looks of modern jerseys. Woollen retro cycling jerseys will make you stand out above the rest when you’re out on your vintage bicycle. 

Caring for your Retro Cycling Jersey

Wool is a delicate material and needs to be maintained in order to keep it in good condition for a long time. This means that when washing it, lower temperatures on wool specific cycles in your washing machine are advised. Once washed, they should be air dried and stored in cotton bags or around moth baths to prevent them being eaten! 

Merino wool however, can be washed at regular 40°C and doesn’t require the same level of dedication to keep in perfect working condition.
