Cotton has a strong insulating power: it keeps you cool on hot summer days and warm in the middle of winter. Moreover, the maintenance of this material is easy because it resists to very hot iron!
- Wool : wool is the reference material for winter. Wool is hypoallergenic which allows your skin to support it very well. This material is very strong: wool can stretch a third of its length without breaking (beware, it is not elastic, so it does not return to its original shape). Its maintenance is also very easy because the wool remains clean, it does not retain odors or dust. With a little ventilation and a brush stroke it becomes like new!
