GiordanaSosta Long Sleeve Wool Jersey - Women's

Fashion is function.

The Sosta Long Sleeve Wool Women's Jersey embodies two things Giordana privileges in its kit: history and innovation. Everything from the material to the shape satisfies these apparently contradictory masters, with a classic/techy fabric blend and such incongruous touches as poacher-style rear pockets and a race-cut front hem bringing cycling's past squarely in line with its future.

The jersey is made of a knitted, heathered blend called Koln, which incorporates merino wool and nylon to meet the history/tradition mandate, respectively. Wool was cycling's original wonder fabric because it resists odors, insulates, breathes, and wicks moisture—a combination of properties that the synthetics industry has been pursuing for its entire existence.

The synthetics do have strong representation in the form of nylon, though, which allows for the kind of stretch-and-return fit we expect from contemporary gear for serious cyclists. Nylon also adds a bit of durability to the wool, extending the jersey's life even as its insulation and moisture management extend your riding window well into the early winter.

As alluded to above, the jersey features a high front hem, which reduces rippling along the stomach while you're in the saddle. It's also finished with three pockets: two poacher-style hand pockets in the rear and one pocket on the side that zips shut to secure personal effects. An extended collar helps keep the chill at bay, and reflective elements add a touch of low-light visibility during autumn dusks and cool spring mornings.

  • Q & A

Does this fit like Giordana jackets (I wear a M) or can I get my usual size (S) since I won't be wearing much under the jersey?

Hey Susan! I think it fits more like a jersey. If you usually wear a small I would get a small in this as well. Give me a call at my direct line 801.204.4577 or email me at and I can help you out!

I LOVE this long sleeve wool jersey. It fits very well and is extremely soft and comfortable without looking loose or "not pro". The gray with the pink accents is super stylish and it has a very flattering cut. I also wore this as a base layer skiing one day and it performed beautifully! Multipurpose! If you need any help with women's cycling clothing feel free to reach out to me directly at or call my direct line at 801.204.4577. I would love to help you find the perfect winter wear!

Giordana nails the long sleeve base layer with this wool blend jersey. It is comfy, warm, breathable, lightweight and soft. What else do you need in life?? Becoming cold after sweating during a hard effort is every cyclists nightmare, but with this long sleeve, that is never the case! It keeps me remarkably dry and warm even when sweating and I have worn it by itself and also with a jacket on top for colder weather.
