Karin Paul's jacket is cut from a soft wool mix and houndstooth jacquard with a slightly lustrous appearance. The short, boxy cut will layer with everything from denim to dresses. Zip the jacket all the way to the top to keep out the cold.
Secondary fabric: 78% wool, 22% polyester | Main fabric: 100% polyester | Lining: 100% polyester
Wool: A natural fibre, wool is an insulator which means it is very warm to wear. It's resilient and elastic and so garments can stretch comfortably with you, then easily return to their natural shape. It's non-allergenic, so good for people with skin sensitivity, is flame retardant and even dirt and stain resistant. What's more, it's very biodegradable, so at the end of its life you can happily dispose of your garment knowing it won't have an environmental impact.
Felt: is no longer only made of wool, but can also be made of synthetic fibres. Different methods are used to matt or compress the fibres to create a dense, interlocked surface. The result is a very warm fabric.
Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.
