Fabric

Outer fabric: 55% polyester , 25% wool, 20% acrylic | Lining: 100% polyester

Did you know?

Wool: A natural fibre, wool is an insulator which means it is very warm to wear. It's resilient and elastic and so garments can stretch comfortably with you, then easily return to their natural shape. It's non-allergenic, so good for people with skin sensitivity, is flame retardant and even dirt and stain resistant. What's more, it's very biodegradable, so at the end of its life you can happily dispose of your garment knowing it won't have an environmental impact.

Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.

Polyacrylic/Acrylic: has a wool-like feel and so is often made into sweaters. While providing warmth, it is lighter than wool, and as a synthetic is more inexpensive. It takes and retains colour well, can be soft, and depending on how it is made is machine washable. It is also used to make fake fur.

The jacket has a very nice soft quality. I wear them at the current temperature (0 degrees and no wind) and so far it keeps very well warm. She's still an inside pocket and can be closed even up to the neck with buttons.

Original customer review

Die Jacke hat eine sehr schöne weiche Qualität. Ich trage sie bei den jetzigen Temperaturen (um die 0 Grad und kein Wind) und bisher hält sie sehr gut warm. Sie hat noch ein Innentasche und man kann sie auch noch bis zum Hals mit Knöpfen verschliessen.
