When it comes to dressing for golf in the winter, comfort and warmth are two of the most important factors. While you may be familiar with high-performance polyester, you may not know the benefits of wool...
Wool is an underrated fabric in the golf world. All golfers should consider adding wool to their winter layers. This natural product outperforms synthetic fabrics in a variety of ways.
Wool is both practical and natural.
Wool offers great thermal regulation with the addition of breathability. Synthetic layers, in contrast, can trap body moisture, resulting in a clammy feeling.
Wool has the flexibility to remain cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold without overheating. It absorbs moisture from the skin and releases it into the air. This ability grants wool odour resistance. You will sweat less and smell better!
Wool also provides great protection from harmful UV rays, something often overlooked in winter.
Fine wool like Merino is not itchy and is soft to the touch. It stretches easily in all directions while you swing.
Fine wool garments are lightweight, which allows for layering. It is comfortable on the skin while allowing for performance.
Wool has come a long way. Real wool does not pill easily and many garments are now machine washable. Wool also doesn’t wrinkle. Some wool sweaters are even treated to repel water and stains making them very durable as outer layers.
Modern wool apparel is sporty, classy, and more stylish than what you may first envision upon thinking “wool sweater.”
Wool garments are a much better alternative to synthetic fast fashion. Wool’s quality is long-lasting and timeless.
