Cotton-like jerseys

I can not stand the feel of polyester on my neck. Anyone know of a source for jerseys that really, truly "feel like cotton?" Thanks.

Maybe you just need a different kind of weaving pattern from the poly.

Wool

You probably won't find much cotton out there. But there is a ton of technical wool products from Ibex, Smartwool, Rapha, Icebreaker, etc.... Just do searches on wool jerseys. They wick better than cotton and can be quite a bit more comfortable depending on the quality (cheap wool is scratchy)

Canari has some mos' excellent wool jerseys in their lineup this summer.

thin, lightweight, wick well and no-itch. feel like cotton, 65-70 bucks retail. AND high vis colors.

this will sound odd only to those that haven't worn the modern summerweight wool clothing yet, but I pull on a lightweight Smartwool T-shirt or these Canari jerseys, and they actually have a COOLING effect.

order from your local shop that carries Canari jerseys if they don't stock the wool ones.

Cotton T-shirts, about six bucks at Mervyn's. Don't believe everything you read about soaking up sweat and making you miserable. I haven't worn polyester in about 10 years--I wear either a T-shirt or a wool jersey (I got two for half-price from Rivendell).
