Some of these woven fabrics have a blended melange look. These fabrics are made with carded yarns, which are a bit more voluminous and fluffier than worsted yarns.
These fabrics are all fulled. They can be distinguished from each other by the different techniques with which the yarns are woven and by the intensity with which the fabric is fulled. Fulling makes the fabrics stronger, warmer, water-repellent, dirt-repellent and windproof.
Wool naturally ensures a good balance between body and ambient temperature. In addition, wool is breathable. It absorbs water vapor and perspiration and releases it into the environment.
