Wool fabric is known for its warmth. It is soft, strong and very durable. One of the important quality of wool fabric is that it wicks away perspiration from the body and keep the wearer dry. It do not wrinkle easily and is resistant to dirt and wear and tear. Wool never burns over a flame, instead it only smoulders.

Whatever be the source of wool, such as sheep, lamb, alpaca, camel, etc., the fabric of each can be given a different texture to make it more purposeful. For example Chellis is used to make women's and children's dresses and blouses where as Loden is shaped into capes and sportswear. Houndstooth Check is also used in sportswear, specially sportcoats but suits goes well with it. To make tailored suits for men and women, Gabardine is the best.
