The Italian Army makes use of wool in this wool blend shirt. With the primary duties of this shirt being to provide a warm under layer under soldiers uniforms, the Italian Army has increased the comfort of this shirt by blending the wool with cotton.

The wool content is still high enough to be able to enjoy the weather resistance that wool provides and each shirt has a look and feel that goes with any civilian clothes as a top layer.
