Wool is fleece from sheep. Its crimpy fibers create millions of air pockets, making it a natural insulator. The long, exterior antistatic fibers repel water and soil while the shorter, interior fibers absorb moisture vapor up to 30% of the weight of wool before it feels damp. And wool retains 97% of its strength when it's wet!
3M Thinsulate™ Insulation is used in your jackets, pants, gloves, hats and boots to help keep you warm when it's cold outside. The unique microfibers or fine fibers that make up Thinsulate insulation work by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space, the better it insulates you from the cold outside air. Because the fibers in Thinsulate insulation are finer than the fibers used in most other synthetic or natural insulation, they trap more air in less space, which naturally makes Thinsulate insulation a better insulator. So we haven't repealed the laws of nature with our thin insulation; we've simply improved them...to help keep you warm.
Just what I was looking for! Hubby was given these gloves for a gift and he loved the fit, softness and warmth. Ordered 4 more pairs!!
Exactly what we expected. Have been looking for these for years. Finally found them at Bob Ward's. You go Bob Ward's!!!
