Wool Coats and Outerwear – Are They Still a Viable Choice?
Modern material and high tech equipment such as battery operated clothing that keeps you warm when it is cold outside may seem to have relegated wool clothing to the dust bin at the local St. Vincent DePauls, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Mankind has been using clothing made from wool, particularly the wool of sheep for more than twelve thousand years and it does not seem to be giving up its rightful place as one of the most incredible base materials used for clothing not made by man. While shirts and other clothing made from cotton have their rightful place in everyone’s wardrobe, the incredible variety of clothing products and the many benefits it provides is unrivaled by any other.
- Wool has a natural anti bacterial property that keeps it from developing foul odors even if someone wears their wool jacket through many sessions of vigorous outdoor activities.
- This amazing material will keep a person warm and dry even while perspiring as it wicks moisture away from the skin and has the unique natural ability to “breathe” that has only been replicated recently in modern times by expensive products like Gore-Tex.
- Merino Wool is the softest and most supple of all wool products that come from sheep. While generally a little more expensive than the “scratchier” wool sweaters of days gone by, most people agree that it is well worth the money.
- Wool coats, suits, shirts, and pants seem to last forever. Many men still wear the suits that their grandfathers handed down to them after beginning to wear them more than half a century before. Most of these suits are still stylish and seem to never go out of style.
With all these benefits and many more, anyone can and will benefit by having at least one if not more articles of wool clothing in their wardrobe. Go and get yourself some of this amazing material today!
