Dry weave and extreme temps

So this blog poses more of a question than a tip. I was hiking up Piestewa (Squaw) Peak the other day at 114°.  I was wearing my usual attire, hiking boots, hat, nylon shorts and a dry weave shirt. Maybe this is a stupid question, but at 114° should I not wear a dry weave shirt? Dry weave wicks the sweat away from your body, but your body is designed to cool down by sweat. So wouldn’t it be counterproductive to wear wicking material at such extreme temperatures? I look forward to your responses.
