Made from a fabric developed exclusively by Rapha, these high-performance arm warmers combine the natural performance properties of merino wool with a degree of Lycra for stretch and durability. They provide insulation, are highly breathable and also transfer moisture effectively. The fabric is quick-drying so the arm warmers can be used in a variety of conditions. They are versatile enough for city riding and work brilliantly when paired with any short-sleeved Rapha jersey.
“As you’ll know if you own any Rapha wool clothing, they use only sheep that are washed and conditioned every morning, groomed twice daily and fed on a diet of nourishing, green-leafed vegetables. All the while, the sheep are watching newsreels of epic Tour de France stages from the 1950s.
And that is all absolutely true, which is why the wool is incredibly soft and fine and suitable for cycling. It really does feel great against your skin. No prickliness, no itchiness, no scratchiness.”

“The Rapha Merino arm warmers are extremely comfortable and offer excellent warmth considering their light weight. Rapha has still managed to make these pretty warm pieces of kit, far better than their lightweight construction would suggest.”
