Someone at the Duluth Trading Co. clearly follows my Facebook page because they contacted me several weeks ago and offered to send me one of the shirts in their new Armachillo clothing line. They explained how the new line is specially designed to keep the wearer cool in the summer, and thought I would be interested in 'farm-testing' it since we're here in Virginia and I'm outside for a good part of each day.
A really pretty blue plaid long-sleeved shirt arrived several days later. Very lightweight, Armachillo shirts have microscopic pieces of Jade embedded in them so they stay cool and actually wick heat away from your body. Designed for the heat and humidity in Texas, I was excited to see how it held up in our Virginia heat and humidity. The shirt was beautiful and fit perfectly. I immediately went to work testing it to see if it would live up to the buzz. For the next few weeks, I literally lived in this shirt.
I wore it gardening in the hot sun...
I wore it on cooler days with a tee underneath...
I wore it when I built our new duck pen...
I even wore it to snuggle our baby ducklings!
I washed it and threw it in the dryer several times. It dries really quickly and doesn't need ironing to look good. It is super comfortable and slightly fitted, so it's perfect to wear for a quick run to the feed store, but with underarm gussets and a mesh bi-swing back so your movement is never constricted, it's perfect for all kinds of farm chores. It also has antimicrobial properties to combat stinky sweat!
It really is the perfect work shirt for around the farm....and the best part is - it matches all my jeans! It is now my go-to shirt that I grab most mornings. I am really impressed with the Duluth Trading Co. Armachillo shirt. Rugged, practical and made for working women! Thank you Duluth Trading Co. for reaching out to me and sending me the shirt to try ...now I just might have to buy one in a different color for a change of pace!
