Chill Angel Essential Tank for summer nights

I’ve been a huge fan of Chill Angel for several years now. This company that specializes in Merino wool pajamas and loungewear has been making women feel more comfortable in their own skin since launching their first sleep shirt, and I’ve found each piece to be versatile and practical. For instance, their sleepwear is often pressed into service in my house to become leisurewear during quarantine, and my wool tank has gone backpacking and camping with me.

Chill Angel’s new Essential Wool Tank Top is form-fitting but fairly short in the torso, so you don’t have extra fabric bunching up while you sleep. It has full coverage on the shoulders (as opposed to spaghetti straps) and is thin and lightweight while still providing the wicking properties of Merino wool. I can see this tank being a good layering piece for other activities too, such as skiing and snowshoeing in winter, when I want a base layer of wool that can breathe and won’t cling. For now, the evenings are warming up in Oregon, so the essential tank is perfect as my sole layer during sleep.

Wool wicks away moisture and regulates temperature during sleep, which is why it’s perfect for women in midlife who are experiencing varied temperatures during any given night. This tank is 100 percent wool, buttery soft, and thin (it’s Chill Angel’s 150 gram fabric Angel Light offering). You can machine wash this tank, and while air drying is recommended, my essential tank has gone through the dryer and survived just fine (don’t tell!).

Pick up the essential tank for $65 on the Chill Angel site in XS-XL in two classic colors: black or silver. This is a classic piece that will be versatile for you and last for years. All my Chill Angel wool pieces look just like new no matter how I wear them, when, or how often! Enjoy the cooling properties of wool!
