Merino wool winter and summer, it just works. I wear Gerbing heated gloves but have never needed to turn them on yet!, nice and warm without.

+1 on the heated gear! It's a bit of a pain to be wired into your bike but you can control how warm you want to be. Even with heated grips, the cold air blowing over the tops of my gloves made my hands numb within 30-45 minutes of riding before I bought my heated gear. I ended up buying Tourmaster gear but I think the Firstgear is less bulky and fits well under my jacket and pants

Wessie and Fozz above have hit the nail on the head, merino is the way to go. The Mountain Warehouse and Aldi gear is fantastic.

Thanks for all the replies. I have gone for the Merino wool option and Mountain Warehouse delivered today.
I feel a test ride or two coming on over the weekend👍🏍
