If you haven’t heard of them, Chill Angel is a brand of Merino wool nightclothes that are my go-to for travel and the outdoors. Why? The 100 percent wool wicks away sweat for a more comfortable night’s sleep in varied temperatures (you know how it is in hotel rooms…either freezing or hot!) and it never smells or wrinkles.
I’ve enjoyed Chill Angel’s shorts and tees to sleep in (see a full review of those items here) and am back now with their Sleepover Nightshirt. I am loving this one-piece sleepwear shirt for winter, because the long sleeves keep me warm when I am not fully under covers while remaining breathable and not too hot. And these nightshirts are really cute and long enough in the length that I can walk around in it without a robe in my house or hotel room. I’m 5’4″ and the hem hits me around the knees.
It’s a three-button Henley style with raglan sleeves, and you get flatlock stitching for a nice finished touch, and a shirttail hemline, which, as I mentioned, looks really cute while wearing around the house. The cuffs have thumb holes, which is a nice bonus. It’s 100 percent Merino wool, so they do suggest washing in cold water and air drying, but I’ve put my nightshirt in the drier on a cool setting and haven’t had a problem.
You have your pick of colors, from basic black, to iris (purple with black sleeves), sandy ( tan/gray color with black sleeves), or raspberry (which is a raspberry pink with purple sleeves). They’re all very unique combinations and you’ll stand out without looking too cutesy. Sizes range from XS-XL. I have a medium, and it feels roomy, so I’d say it runs a bit big.
The Sleepover Nightshirt is $139, but for pure wool that’s lightweight, breathable, and timeless, you can’t go wrong. You’ll have this nightshirt for years and I bet it will be your go-to travel sleepwear just like it is mine. Makes for a great gift!
