Wool performance apparel for sport
Although initially slow to capitalise on the explosive growth in the sports apparel sector and hampered by an 'old-fashioned' image, wool's complex morphological structure means that it is uniquely positioned for tailoring into high-performance products suitable for a wide range of sports applications. Indeed wool can be considered as one of the most high-tech of all apparel fibres. In this chapter the benefits of wool in relation to apparel for active sports will be examined against a background of the physiological and sensory processes that create the environment in which wearer comfort must be achieved.
