Another Winner

Great fit and colour which is shaping up as another winner from Ottie. Looking forward/hoping to Ottie coming out with a more winter oriented heavier weight Tee in both long and short sleeve versions.

Stephen Marsh
Wears well and is comfortable

I think for the price I expected a merino wool T shirt to be a bit thicker. Compared to a cotton T shirt it was thin on material.

Thanks for your review, Stephen. In our lightweight tees, we use a 165gsm superfine merino. This weight is a great balance between durability and warm and cool weather performance. We also now have our 200gsm merino thermals which are designed to be more insulative.

When buying merino, do look at the gsm (grams per square metre) to determine the weight of the tee you're buying. Lighter gsm will mean a lighter, airier tee, but less durability. Heavier will mean more insulative and the added bonus of greater durability, but this isn't ideal for wearing in warmer conditions.

Price doesn't determine the weight of the fabric. What you're paying for with us is a top quality Australian (and ethically) made product. Hope that helps and hope you still enjoy the tee.

Cheers, Richard.

Great all-rounder

Just bought my second ottie tee - I wear my first all the time, for everyday stuff as well as hiking and paddling. Great for travelling, love that I can get away with not washing it for a few days!

T - Shirt

Very happy. Good length, very comfortable quality material ,no compromise has been made in choice of micron for the yarn Top . Also not trying to compromise with a blend .

Jamie Schmidt
Great shirts

I often go hiking in the Blue Mountains and Sydney area. I now have two Ottie teeshirts I not only find them light and comfortable for hiking, they also look great for just general wearing around town.

Nathan Waters My Masseur
Comfortable and relaxed!

Our company My Masseur was looking for a more sustainable and colourful natural fiber shirt for our staff. We came across Ottie's and read some reviews and contacted Paul. I loved the hands on and personal nature of this business.

We run a massage business in Townsville and we have relaxed our image, we have moved into a new location and really created a warm,relaxed, grounded space. I was hesitant to move from the known, but the feel of these shirts some how gives us that little extra glow inside! Strange right?

Moving from our collared polyester shirts to this has been well received from our clients and more importantly our staff. They love the feel. I love that I can also wear it multiple days in a row without washing, great for the environment, even up here in the tropics.
Orders were shipped super fast and communication was great. If they last a fair amount of time we will be buying Otties for a long time!
Our embroidered logos look great on them also. Really happy we made this decision. Thanks Paul.

Reading this review makes our hearts swell, Nathan. :) So happy to be part of making your staff more comfortable and your business more sustainable. A lot of folk wonder about wool in the tropics, but as you, and many of our customers know, it's great in all environments - hot or cold! Love the pics too! Cheers, Paul
