Houdini W's Activist Tee - Merino wool and Tencel
The perfect versatile t-shirt in soft, comfortable and quick-drying merino wool and Tencel. Great for climbing, hiking or as an everyday tee.
Houdini has finally created the perfect everyday t-shirt? Try on this super comfortable, highly versatile t-shirt made from soft merino wool and Tencel fibers and see for yourself. The breathable and quick-drying materials provide a layer of tempered air that will keep you warm on your winter adventures and cool in the summer heat.
At Houdini, they believe that you shouldn’t need multiple products to fulfill different purposes. A minimalistic lifestyle means less impact on our environment and less contribution to consumerism. Houdini asked themselves if it is possible to create a t-shirt that you can wear during your morning workout session and then take the same t-shirt to work.
The soft merino wool combined with biodegradable Tencel fibers does not only provide high comfort but is also odor resistant and quick-drying. Seams in no friction areas give you the feeling of wearing next to nothing. The fabric is also highly breathable and regulates your body temperature naturally and efficiently.
Wear it as an extra base layer on colder days in the slopes or as a casual fitted t-shirt as you are sipping ice coffee on warm summer days. The natural performance materials in combination with the relaxed fit make for a garment that looks just as good with a pair of jeans as it does with hiking pants. Simply put, we believe that it is possible to wear one t-shirt for everything.

Wool is a fantastic material with natural bacterial and dirt resistance. Therefore, wool does not need to be washed after every use. Frequent washing has a negative effect on the wool’s properties and unnecessarily wears down the garment. Instead, air your wool garments to reduce your water usage, save energy and make your garments last longer.
- Use a washing bag to protect your garments and to prevent fibers from leaking. When cleaning the bag and filter in the machine, make sure to wipe it clean and throw the lint in your trash can. Never rinse it in water since we don’t want the fibers to end up in lakes or oceans.
- Machine gentle wash at max 40 °C/104 °F, preferably with a wool program.
- If you can, use wool detergents. Otherwise use mild, environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose. Select a detergent that has a neutral pH and no enzymes.
- Avoid bleach and alkaline substances that raise the pH value. Also avoid enzymes such as protease or amylase since these can break down wool, which give this material its natural performance properties. This also applies to silk.
- Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
- Do not dry in tumble dryer.
- Shape the garment after washing and lay flat to dry.
- Iron on low heat.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where the earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, Houdini wants to close the loop and reuse the material they already have. But they need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to Weekendbee to be recycled.
The fabric in this product is fully biodegradable. Thanks to the fact that Houdini never mixes our natural fibers with synthetics and doesn't use harmful chemicals, you can put the fabric in compost and nature will transform the fabric into fertile soil. Trimmings like care labels, zippers, seams etc have to be removed and can often be recycled separately. If you don't have your own compost, you can return the worn-out garment to Weekendbee.
The fibers in this garment come from 100% renewable sources like wool or cellulose. Houdini only uses natural fibers that are produced in environmentally and ethically responsible sources. Houdini uses both natural and synthetic fibers, they both have their merits, but Houdini never mixes them to ensure a circular product. This means that the fabrics from all Houdini products in natural fibers are fully biodegradable.
The fabric in this garment is fully recyclable. Instead of becoming waste, raw material can be used for new products. Houdini's goal is that by 2030, they will take no raw material to their products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from recycled and recyclable materials are a real game-changer, but they need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to Weekendbee.
