HDWool Introduces Thermal Comfort at ISPO Munich

HDWool, a global leading wool supplier, unveiled its new garment insulation for outdoor apparel at the ISPO exhibition held in Munich Feb. 5-8. Thermal Comfort is a traceable, biodegradable, and natural personal insulation created by HDWool’s team with more than 127 years of experience in the industry.

The new insulation solves the problems of traditional garment insulation used in outdoor apparel, including leaving the wearer feeling overheated, under-insulated and uncomfortable.

HDWool technical director Dave Halley, “Our innovative product is truly naturally adaptive and it’s intuitive enough to adapt to the needs of the body. Just think about how wool protects the humble sheep that lives in climates as varied as the Australian desert to the Scottish mountains.”

He added, “Our desire to demonstrate the provenance and authenticity of our product lead us to embed our unique organic tracer into HDWool Thermal Comfort, which guarantees its origin. Brands who choose to use HDWool Thermal Comfort can customize the product depending on their audience, using natural, renewable wool which we believe is the most technically advanced fiber in the world.”

The wool used inside the new insulation is hand-selected from a specific breed of sheep which grows the ideal type of wool for highly resilient, customizable, hard-wearing but light outdoor performance wear. Using highly resilient wool allows the product to have the most insulation with the least amount of weight and naturally retain its shape.

Thermal Comfort absorbs moisture from the air surrounding the skin, keeping it away from the body and allowing the wearer to be more comfortable for a longer amount of time.

The product can hold up to 33 percent of its own weight in water before feeling damp, making it superior to traditional garment insulation currently on the market.
