We're always willing to offer our opinion, especially on a product that can be related to our travels. And most of you know that we travel very light. So when we did some research about this lightweight, comfortable, easy to wash and dry clothing, we took them up on the idea!
Body Bark clothing is made with a very different type of material. It's soooo soft and it feels great against your skin. The material is called MicroModal, and it's actually made from the fiber of the beech tree. Technically, it's 96% Siro MicroModal / 4% Lycra.
It's easy to describe... it feels like a softer version of silk!
Body Bark t-shirts!
Very important to us is that the product is easy to hand wash and that it dries overnight. We did find that if we rolled them up in a dry towel after hand washing and wringing out that they were wearable by the time we woke up in the morning.
So while we were traveling between December and April, these t-shirts were washed many times, both by hand and in a machine. Very impressed. They didn't lose their shape at all, and they didn't fade at all either. They still feel like they are brand new.
Body Bark makes a lot of different clothing for women, but not much for men! There is only a standard t-shirt available for men, and now you can get either a black one or a white one. But, there is a wide selection of women's tops available.
The only drawback is that the material is fairly expensive to produce, and that is reflected in the price of the clothing. However, we've learned with our Merrell hiking boots and our Tilley underwear that sometimes it's worthwhile to buy expensive clothing. If it's comfortable, and it lasts a long time, then you can justify the price.
They have a good selection of sale items right now.
The clothing is made in the USA, and shipping is included in the price.
