The skin-friendly cotton classic
hard-wearing, skin-friendly, easy to care: the cotton sweater is a true classic.Its natural material feels pleasant to the touch and has a low allergy index. It is both comfortable and fun to wear in the office, at home, or when you go to town.
However, cotton sweaters are not suitable when it comes intensive movement. The natural fabric takes up moisture, but does not wick it off. Consequently the sweaty clothes cling unpleasantly to the body thus heightening the danger of rapid cooling. Therefore, for sportive activities pullovers made of synthetic fibres, wool or material mixes are a better choice.
The warming property of lamb's wool
Pullovers made of wool have several advantages: they consist of natural material, have heat-storing and moisture regulating properties.. Sheep's wool, lambwool or merino wool is particularly suitable when active movement alternates with periods of rest. It is ideal for Trtrekking tours spaning serveral days or for outdorr activities involving a lot of movement in the cold. Wool transports moisture to the outside and keeps you comfortably warm. Merino wool does not absorb odours and retains its insulating properties even when it has become moist.
Polyester, polyamid & Co: functionality for the active
Fond of sportive activities? If this is the case, then pullovers with a high percentage of polyester, polyamid oder polypropylen are a good option. Synthetic fibres provide good breathability and tranport moisture rapidly to the outside where it wil evaporate. Thus you will remain dry even during sweaty activities which will be a boost to your performance. Functional pullovers made of synthetic fibres can be worn as a base layer. The close fit perfectly allows moisture to be absorbed and transported off. Fleece pullovers (with a knitted look) can also be classified as synthetic fibre textiles . Their interior side is slightly roughened and provides much warmth and a pleasant wearing comfort. In minus temperatures the fleece pullover can be worn as a breathable middle layer becoming the upper layer when it gets warmer.
The mixture makes the difference
Often pullovers are a mix of various materials thus combining the best properties of all the involved textiles. The addition of elasthan for instance makes for a stretchable piece of garment which gives way to any kind of movement. If wool is added to the synthetic fibres,this will result in a breathable fabric with excellent insulating characteristics for the cold season. If the functional clothes have an ingredient of cotton their wearing comfort will be enhanced.
It´s your call to decide on the look and feel: model varieties include roundneck, V-cut, raised collar or poloshirt styles. Knitwear and pullovers with ribbed knit closures at the collar, sleeves and cuffs give a perfect fit and offer good insulation against cold and weather. For cold days pulllovers with a thumb duct can be recommended. The sleeves are extended to cover the middle of your hand while the thumb ducts prevent the sleeves from slipping back.
