Natural Fiber Shirts/Shorts Needed
 
After several weeks of trial and error my doctor has come to the conclusion that the rash I have developed results from a reaction to synthetic/polyester clothing. Does anyone know of a source for natural fiber shirts and shorts?

I'm assuming you are a man, did you wash you synthetic stuff first before wearing?
in something mild like Ivory snow, and many rinses to wash out the soap? What do you
wash yourself with harsh anti bacterial soap? all of this can contribute to rashes.

The best natural fiber items would be wool, as long as you are not allergic..

Kucharik markets wool cycling gear at a good price.

Also Smartwool, Ibex, Rivendell's Woolywarm and
woolrich are all very good.

Wool.

You can't wear a really light dry-weave either?

Thanks to everyone.
I am male and I have gone through two dermatologists to date. With all the cortizone roids I have been given I would be joining Tyler if I was tested. I have washed with every type of soap known, tried a $1000 water filter system for the house. Ect. Lots of time and money. I am a Law Enforcement Officer and have gone through several types of bullet proof vests and cool-max undershirts. The latest attempt is to elimnate all synthetic clothing, including my riding outfit. I live in the eastern pan-handle of West Virginia so we get hot in the summer. Cotton is not and option.

Again, thank you all very much. The time you have taken will make my riding more enjoyable.

In my observation, dermatology is less of a medical science than a medical art.
