Is this made from an itch-free Merino wool?...

Is this made from an itch-free Merino wool? Is it meant to be worn next to the skin? Can you layer it with another under garment for additional warmth if necessary? Does it have any wind stopping ability or would you need to wear a windbreaker over it? This jersey is quite expensive even on sale and I would want it to be an ideal garment for winter riding.

I have two wool long sleeve jerseys from Castelli and they don't itch at all. I can't speak for the Merino wool, but it's extremely comfortable and I use it on my mountain bike rides as well.
