The use of wool for clothes manufacturing goes back a long way. From sweaters to gloves, coats, suits, trousers and socks: you name it, you can buy it made of wool! With winter upon us, you may wonder what items you should equip yourself with, and what textiles are most helpful to avoid cold evenings. The answer is an unequivocal “wool.”
One reason is that wool is a great fabric to wear to keep warm in the winter because of its water resistance. Popular fabrics like cotton tend to soak up liquids quickly as their air pockets are more sensitive to water absorption. Hence, a cotton top can literally fill up under heavy rain.
In addition, wool has a natural layer of keratin, a protein all animal hair contains which helps maintain body temperature. On top of that, wool hair fibres act as an insulator to trap the air inside the cloth, which helps stabilize your body temperature. Since air conducts heat, this means the warmth you might generate through exercise or general movement also gets trapped by wool, which keeps you even warmer.
