[pct-l] Re: Pure Silk
I cast another vote for silk dress shirts from the thrift store. Their
voluminous cut keeps bugs and sun off; they catch every breeze and dry
in less than an hour. Solid color shirts seem to have a longer life
than print shirts, something about the dye (bleach?) process in creating
a print seems to weaken the fabric. I start every month long trek with
three new (to me) shirts and toss them all when I get home. They are
incredibly cool and comfortable on warm hiking days.
