Thermal suede is a lightweight polyester fabric with a suede finish, which uses a combination of yarns with different thicknesses. Microfibre yarns (less than 1 decitex) go on the outside and Macrofibre (3 decitex) go on the inside. The Macrofibre yarns are raised to produce a short pile, similar in feel to suede. The construction exploits a basic physical property – that water will always move from a low to high surface area or from the macro to micro filament yarns, thus moving water from the body outwards.
- Quickly perspires and wicks away unwanted moisture
- Highly breathable
- Fibres create a warm insulating layer
