The Word on Wool

• Wool is a wonderful fiber – resilient, long wearing and depending on the weave and weight, it is a natural insulator to keep you warm in winter and naturally breathable to keep you cool in summer.

• Because of it scale like construction, you need to take care to avoid friction situations which can result in pilling. While your professional drycleaner can “card” the fabric, thereby removing the offending “pills”, it best for the long term well-being of the garment if you avoid cinched belts, shoulder bags, crossing your knees so that they scrape the underside of a desk or table and a poor fit that results in excessive rubbing when you walk or swing your arms.
