From golden hour evening rides to all-day tours. The magic of merino and its natural fibre comfort for timeless hours in the saddle. It's how memories are made.
Cosy, comfortable, technical. A mid-weight cycling jersey made from 100% pure Australian merino with a button closure pocket.
Full-zip ventilation. Careful details. Timeless design.
On and off the bike, merino works its magic in cool conditions. Natural anti-odour properties mean you can wear it for longer without washing. Great for multi-day bike trips. Merino’s temperature regulating properties keep you cool when you’re warm, and warm when it's cold.
We've added some thoughtful features. The full zip provides full ventilation options. From working hard on the ascent, to protection on the way back down, the Torino is versatile. The rear pocket has a button closure. It’s functional, but not awkward. And the Torino is machine washable.
310gsm pure Australian Merino from non-mulesed sources
Avoid snagging, vigorous machine washing, putting your finger through the fabric, and hungry moths. Those darn moths. Merino wool is naturally odour-resistant, requiring less washing. When your sweater does start to whiff, hand wash it in lukewarm water or stick it on a delicates cycle at 30°C. Use a gentle soap instead of detergents if you can, and do not use conditioners or fabric softeners.

How It Is Made
We only use merino from certified non-mulesed sources. Mulesing is a practice some farms use to guard against parasitic fly strike. We believe this practice is cruel and unnecessary and something that can be easily prevented by regular shearing.
Natural Fibre Materials
Merino wool is 100% natural, biodegradable and renewable (sheep produce new fleece and sheep produce new sheep... usually in spring... they gambol... you know all this...)
Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.
All our factories sign up to our Code of Conduct. Find out where we make our product by visiting our Factories of Alpkit factory zone.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
