Morvelo's Heather cycling jersey is an instant classic: a subtle blend of colours brought to life in the softness and versatility of merino wool. We just love this one!
Merino is a much heralded fabric in the cycling world. Naturally anti-bacterial, it's odour-resistant and the fibres wick moisture away from the body, making it comfortable even when wet from rain or sweat. It’s fast drying, keeps you warm when it’s cold, and cools your body when it’s hot thanks to that wicking property.
It's only downside has traditionally been that merino pockets can sag as it's a natural material. Morvelo's innovative spirit has put paid to that problem: the fabric used in the Heather jersey is 100% Merino against the skin, covered by an outer layer of technical fabric that allows for more creative graphics whilst never sacrificing the joys of merino. It's the best of both worlds!
Morvelo Size Guide
Note: Morvelo's sizing is pretty 'realistic' if you are used to UK sizing. Bear in mind, however, that the cut is deliberately fairly snug and fitted to keep you aerodynamic and unflappy on your ride!

Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar are bike nuts to the core. They've spent most of their lives riding and racing all kinds of bikes, plus nearly as long in the worlds of graphic design and branding. In 2008, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvelo - to encompass cycling 'in all its forms'.
Since then, from their Brighton base, the firm has grown through private financing from their friends and customers - often one and the same! They are proud never to have needed to open things up to big investors, meaning they've been able to grow steadily and to create exactly the designs that they are passionate about.
Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. Morvelo remain independently owned and proudly British, so able to put their own distinctive mark on their ever expanding range of stunning cycling gear. They explore themes that combine cycling with wider influences from art, fashion, film and music. And they do it with real individuality and class. Their women's range is growing fast, and they have 'real' women as part of their team both to design and test all their products. Just some of the reasons why we like them so much!
