So, winter is around the corner. That means that the talk of magical materials has begun. As fashion has had it in the past few years, there have already been several posts about the magical properties of wool, and how it keeps you warm when wet. Apparently the myth has now grown to include other properties such as durability, toughness and light weight, things which are pretty squarely in the realm of imagination. Wool of course is not the only offender. Many other posts have come out talking about newer materials which perform equally magical feats of insulation. I am writing this post in an attempt to give you my view on all of this hoopla, and if possible share with you my experience, both practical and academic regarding the insulation abilities of different types of clothing.
