We love wool fleece for the structure it gives to simple garments, with a sports yet utilitarian feel and a great warmth-to-weight ratio, making a lightweight, warm, versatile and – we hope – very stylish garment. Offered in 6 stunning colours and a camo print, we knew you’d have a tough time selecting which one. To make your decision a tad easier, Frankie and Meshach from our Nottingham retail team thoughtfully styled together some fits.
Why In Wool Fleece?
Fleece is the original egalitarian insulator. It doesn’t give a flying Thermos flask whether you’re a hot-shot rock-climbing adrenaline junkie, or just an average bloke who likes the odd country walk with a pint and some peanuts at the end. Apparently invented in Massachusetts, the eureka moment happened sometime in the 1970s when a couple of textile boffins started playing around with the construction of terry towelling. They subbed cotton for micro-fine polyester and a prototype was born. The version we've been using season after season is made from a wool-based mix. It looks great, washes like a dream and never needs ironing. What's not to like?
