Silk or Wool Long Johns?

I'm looking for long johns for worst case scenario that we need to move in the middle of winter. Also, if we bug in (and we've got no heat), we've got to be as warm as can be.

I've heard of silk long johns from the other thread, and while googling for it I also came across Micrawool. Check out the features:

Micrawool Long Underwear Bottoms - 70 Percent Merino Wool - Forest City Surplus Canada - discount prices

Is this better than silk? For trekking out - at least it's also good when wet. Your take pls.

The reason I like the wool in my LJ's is that it gives me a reason to scratch my sack.
I didn't know I needed a reason to do that...:roll:

i use silk its easier to get my leathers on! I just love the silk long johns. got them from big 5 for a super price!
Silk and leather…I need a moment to compose myself. Whew.
Tried out the silk today and like em a lot. It warmed up today to about 20 deg so it wasn't too bad. The worst part was, we have 29-30 mph winds with gusts up to 60. I had to run to the mailbox today(20 or so miles away) to pick up some b-12 and a few other things I ordered online. If I wasn't worried about the stuff freezing, I would have just waited. The wind was CRAZY!!

20 miles or so to the mailbox? How far from civilization are you? That's the wide opens spaces for sure.
