The light and soft Desoli is a super popular Houdini product family made of luxury merino wool. It includes two different lengths of trousers, a long-sleeve and a short-sleeve shirt, underwear, and a turtleneck. Desoli’s 100% merino is a result of long product development – it’s very light and pure wooly fabric.

Houdini’s Wander is made of a material consisting of 60 % superfine merino and 40 % Tencel lyocell. The natural warmth of merino wool combined with the smooth texture of Tencel works like magic in extreme conditions while being very comfortable to wear. Wander is thicker and sturdier than Desoli.

6. Couch potato’s bestie! You can mooch about wearing just Houdini layers at home every evening – the design is more stylish than basic long johns.

7. Sleep! If you would happen to fall asleep while reading or watching the telly in your Houdinis, not to worry – they are light and breathable enough to keep you comfy at night.

8. For ice swimmers! If you like cold dips in icy waters and maybe a sauna on the top, Houdini is a great choice. It doesn’t matter if your skin is moist, just pull the layers on – the materials are moisture-wicking and you’ll feel nice and warm in next to no time. Houdini’s merino is warm even when wet.


9. Rain and forest! Wear your Houdini’s when you have to ride your bicycle to work while it rains. They are perfect to wear under rain clothes for mushroom picking or running with your dog in a forest. See – no sweat!

10. Body maintenance and yoga! If you do pilates or yoga at home or in a hall with air conditioning, thin merino layers may improve your muscular well-being at least at the start of the session.
