If there is one thing we can’t be certain of these days, it’s the weather. It’s humid when it’s supposed to be cool and it’s freezing when it’s supposed to be warm so like I said years ago, I should make tees that say ‘Al Gore was right.’ But my home-made tees wouldn’t help you in times of flaky weather but this collection of handy knitwear from Alan Paine would go a long way in helping you keep your cool.
For Spring Summer 2012, Alan Paine has sourced a new yarn blending Supima Cotton and Clima fibres to create knitwear that will actually keep you cool in hot weather. Combining tradition with pioneering technology, Alan Paine is the world’s first knitwear producer to use this innovative new fibre.
The specially formulated Clima fibre is made from natural fibres of renewable raw materials and works to keep the body cool by working with your core body temperature and reacting accordingly to keep you cool even on the warmest days.
This is achieved with natural paraffin in the fibre to maintain a constant temperature and thermal regulating features to minimise heat fluctuations between the fabric and the body. Another characteristic of the fibre is that it is resilient to washing, and so maintains its functionality on a long term basis, no matter how many times washed.
The result is a collection of classic knitwear that will not only be perfect for wear all year long but also help keep you perennially cool; literally and figuratively.
