PREMIUM WOOL FOR NO-SCRATCH, BREATHABLE PERFORMANCE For a tailored uniform that adapts to your every move, wool offers the best performance through every season. The powerful look of our wool pieces honor the past with classic style and the function you need for everyday wear. In cold climates, wool retains heat to keep you warm. And on warmer days, the breathable fibers wick away moisture to keep you cool and comfortable.
Did you know that wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight without feeling heavy or damp? No wonder it was a choice fabric for the military when battling through multiple environmental climates during war. Today, the same great natural characteristics exists in our L.A. Select line of 100% Premium Worsted Wool uniforms. Not only is wool naturally resistant to mildew, its absorbent properties make it naturally static and wrinkle resistant. Wool garments keep their shape, making for a long lasting, clean and professional look throughout the life of the garment. Because wool garments offer such great performance, our L.A. Select customers find they save money over the course of their career purchasing a wool uniform because of its durability and long life.
Flame Retardant: wool is self-extinguishing and will not support combustion
Durable: wool resists tearing and does not pill
Wrinkle Resistant: wool has a natural crimp that allows the fiber to be stretched up to 30% and bounce back
Temperature Regulation: the fiber construction of wool creates millions of air pockets that provide thermal regulation; but also breathes and wicks moisture away from the body for coolness
DOES ALL WOOL ITCH? ABSOLUTELY NOT. In fact, the science behind wool is pretty simple. If a wool fiber has a large diameter it will be itchy. Large diameter fibers are derived from low-quality wool. If a wool fiber has a small diameter it will feel extremely soft. Small diameter fibers are derived from high-quality wool.
Flying Cross uses only the highest quality of smaller micron wool to manufacture all of its wool uniform products. Our wool is also worsted which gives it a high level of durability for longer wear and less pilling.
