There are many amazing qualities of wool that make it a very popular fabric for suits. For starters, it’s extremely water resistant. It’s also a wonderful insulator keeping the wearer warm and toasty in cold weather because the tiny insulating air spaces in wool fibres retain more heat. Unlike cotton which absorbs moisture and tends to remain wet, wool actually wicks perspiration and allows it to evaporate quickly thus keeping you warmer. Wool also has a wide comfort range which is very helpful for adapting to changing weather conditions.
