    Ah! That might explain why the Lucy store near where I live closed without a word.

    Over here they are right across the street from each other, so they don't even have to ship the inventory over! (The Lucy website is very specific about which styles are going to transition over.)

    I made a final Ibex order and got a couple of Woolies 1 long-sleeve shirts. I was so disappointed when I opened the box and read the label to find out that they are no longer 100% wool. I feel let down and kind of stupid for not checking before I ordered.

    Not sure this is much consolation, but -
    I do have REI shirts that are merino wool blends... the addition of other fibers does usually increase the durability without too many tradeoffs of warm or stink, so give them a shot, hopefully you won't be too disappointed!

    I wasn't aware of the changes at Lucy either. My go-to work pant, the Walkabout, is no longer available Frown

    Its a shame about IBEX, I received an email with the CEO statement, but I have noticed merino wool is certainly more well known in the last few years.
    I would prefer to go for quality than quantity (like TB) , but not everyone feels the same (for whatever reason) and that will be why it hasn’t survived.
