Coat fabric is intended for creating warm clothing that protects your body in such severe seasons, as winter, early spring, and late autumn. Coming in numerous types of weights and finishes, these fabrics can be chosen as for a lightweight coat in the off-season, as for a warm overcoat when the temperature drops far below the 0 °C.
A coat can be either a piece of your formal wardrobe, or a classy casual garment to sport when enjoying your favourite activities.
The Main Types
Given the typical weather conditions coats are created for, the most popular fibres are worsted wool, camel, alpaca, and cashmere. That choice is defined by the exceptional properties of these fibres:
- Wool is breathable and feeling comfy against your skin. For more warmth, go for the blend with alpaca;
- Cashmere is splendidly soft, lightweight and offering a silky hand. If complemented with mink, the blend gains even more in warmth;
- Camel wool perfectly retains body temperature, absorbs moisture, and boasts outstanding durability;
- Alpaca features prominent silky sheen, high thermal isolation properties, high durability, and resistance to any sort of contamination.
These days, you can also stumble upon such decent coat wool fabrics as mohair, tweed, fur and faux fur, each coming with lots of great features for a warm and snug coat: mohair amazes with exceptional warmth and fibre durability provided by the Angora goat, tweed is the classic sturdy coating fabric coming in various kinds, while fur and faux fur are equally great in terms of warmth and overall comfort.
