I have quite a few merino wool sweaters. Most of my t-shirts are 100% cotton. What are the advantages of having a merino wool t-shirt? Is this supposed to be athletic wear?

Wool helps wick away sweat whereas cotton holds onto moisture. Smelly people find wool doesn't have bad sweat-related issues compared to polyester fabrics. Wool shirts r delicate and often get holes in them, which sucks.

That Costco item is so low-priced. I wish I could check it out and compare it to those more expensive brands to see if there is a difference.

They're great for travel: they pack down well so don't take up a lot of space, they wick sweat and don't retain smell easily, they dry quickly. The main downside is their cost.

I also have a lot of cotton clothes. But I want to change the style.
I'm having doubts about that dehydrated water I bought for my plastic plants.
