Coppi Wool Jerseys

I should have mentioned yesterday that if you are a Coppi fan you can purchase a very nice 100% Merino wool jersey from www.soigneur.co.nz (in New Zealand were they have a lot of wool). The owner of soigneur, David Carman, previously sent in this story about cycling in New Zealand in the 1970s and eventually making wool jerseys.

These are the Coppi jerseys he makes:

He also make this "Italia" jersey in Merino:

These jerseys are also available in long sleeve versions.

Note: I have no business association with soigneur.
