‘DIOMEDE’ by BERINGIA
Beringia’s Masters of Bishu line features ‘Diomede’, a proprietary fabric that seamlessly knits multiple layers of fabric into one ultra-stretchy waffle. The collection underwent 2 years of testing and design refinement in the wettest, snowiest conditions in the Japanese Alps before release.
By combining different knits into one single fabric we can move excess heat and humidity into the air (active) and trap more dry air between the layers (passive). The outer waffle is resilient to the point of feeling almost spongy, providing an unheard-of 2:1 ratio of stretchable comfort, with a bold but elegant cross-hatched waffle texture.
Made with 91% Merino, Collagen finish (Chlorine Free), machine washable, this is the softest-lightest merino shirt built for high performance and a broad comfort range.
