Luxurious wool is the best material to keep you warm and help you feel lavish during the cold winter months!
Sitting by the fire and watching the snow fall feels so good. Warming your hands while drinking a hot aromatic tea, what’s better than that in the winter, right? I couldn’t agree more, but sadly there always comes a time when we need to go out and about. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to carry this feeling of warmth everywhere we went? Well, wearing garments made from wonderfully luxurious and natural wool certainly helps. Sweaters, scarves, coats, hats, you name it! The World’s Finest Wool is here for you!
Well, we all know that wool keeps us warm during winter, but would you like to know why? The science behind this is quite fascinating. One of the facts I love about this sumptuous material.
Surprisingly (or not), it’s not really the clothes that keep us warm. It is the warmth generated by us and the warm air that is trapped between the garment and our bodies. That thin layer of warm air that surrounds us actually keeps us warm.
Wool fibers are super fine and hollow: They are experts in trapping the warm air and keep it there while keeping the cold air on the outside. The density and wonderful attributes of wool don’t permit the cold air to penetrate, thus enabling our bodies to maintain the heat. Amazing, isn’t it?
Wool is warm and sumptuous – the perfect choice for the stylish woman who wants to feel comfortable at all times.

Who is the best friend of every woman during winter when it comes to style? But of course, the wooly sweater.
Warm, soft, and definitely stylish, the super fashionable XL sweater is celebrated this year and even goes well with evening outfits.
For winter 2020, fashionista guidelines include lots of references from the 80s and 90s, so the sweaters tend to be shorter in length and larger in volume. I would go as far as recommending unique pieces featuring impressive sleeves and, of course, vivid colors and super soft threads.
In the heart of winter, the cold is harsher, and outfits become heavier. This doesn’t mean that your comfort and style need to comply with lower standards. Not in the least!
Beautiful and elegant coats made from the world’s finest wool can keep you warm and sharp.
As fine wool is a natural fiber, it is really easy to care for it, making it an excellent choice for everyday use. As it is natural and it doesn’t harbor bacteria, most of the time, you just need to hang it in the fresh air and sunlight.
It keeps its shape, and you can even just wipe it with a damp cloth and save yourself the trouble (and cost) of washing it. When you decide to clean it, it is easy to do, and it even dries quickly without losing its fine texture.
Considering the length of time woolen clothes last, and the warmth and comfort they offer year after year, they are quite affordable.
With proper care, fine wool garments retain their shape and qualities for many years.
Fine wool not only keeps you warm, but it is an excellent choice for working out as well. It wicks moisture, and it is great when you break a sweat.
Running, cycling, or hiking, no matter what you choose to do, fine wool outerwear will be right for you thanks to it’s natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties.
Here come some personal recommendations of excellent wooly choices you can make and keep in your closet for years to come.
This year’s must-have is definitely the oversized and chunky version. Pick yours!
How about a simple black sweater made of cashmere? It will go perfectly with everything else you already have in your closet, and it will up your style day and night. Pricier options are more of an investment as they last a lot longer and maintain their fantastic softness.
