Warm Fabrics to Use This WinterWritten by d'Italia
For all of those looking to keep warm this winter and into early spring – or all those cool occasions in between – you’ll want to look out for the warmest fabrics out there. Whether you’re looking to use these fabrics to construct your own garments or you just want some tips for finding the warmest pieces possible, you’ll want to keep eye out for these.
Wool – The Go-To The go-to warm fabric for clothiers all over the world is wool. It really is the standard for cold weather clothing. In terms of color and texture, wool is relatively versatile, but in terms of weight and warmth, it’s just not going to suit you outside the cold moths. That said, consider blended (or blending it) to make it a bit more versatile in terms of weight an warmth. Fleece Not long ago, the world was taken by storm by the as-seen-on-TV Snuggie, which promised to keep its wearer warm all around the house. Hence fleece. Aside from that, fleece is a relatively common jacket material that’s both soft and insulating. Flannel When thinking warm, think lumberjack. Flannel is tough, warm, and cheap, either combining wool and cotton, or comprising 100% cotton. It’s also lightweight, making it great for layering or for making bed sheets you can use in multiple seasons.
