NEW! Merino Bamboo blends are lightweight and durable - a functional and chic twist on the classic Riyoko Bamboo Fleece Tights that will keep you warm, yet regulate temperature, so you won't end up in a sweat. Keep cozy, dry, cool and warm during your commute, at the office, in the mountains for cross-country skiing, camping, or hiking... at the mall...or just on the couch. They can also act as dual duty layers under other tights on really cold days, keeping you warm and adding colour and depth to your ensemble. So chic, comfy, you'll need to buy two. One to wear when the other is in the wash!
