Temperatures have dipped again! The best fabrics for keeping you warm.
You have probably heard of down when looking at puffer coats or padded gillets. Down is a great insulator, typically geese or duck feathers are used in these products. The higher the feather count the warmer the garment will be. The garments can be washed in the machine on a gentle wash. Don't air dry, tumble dry with a tennis ball for extra fluff!
A luxury fabric but a soft and breathable. Cashmere does come with a higher price tag but it's a lovely material for keeping you warm in the colder months.
Wool is a great fabric as it creates a natural insulation due to the air pockets that are present throughout. Wool is strong and lightweight and water-resistant. Always turn wool clothes inside out and wash on a delicate cycle. Don't put in the dryer to avoid shrinking.
As well as being lightweight and warm fleece fabric is very cost effective making it a good choice for work clothing in the winter. The choice of fleece garments is large as well giving you lots of choice for your work force. Caring for your fleece items is easy. It's always best to line dry and if possible do not tumble dry or dry on a radiator. Fleece clothing is lightweight and comfortable, durable, highly breathable and moisture-resistant.
