All You Need to Know About Suiting Wool

Some questions that we get a lot include…

What fabric is the best for my climate?

Is this wool “suitable” for me to wear in the summer/winter?

Is suiting wool the same kind of wool as my favorite sweater?

To be quite honest, before I got my first custom suit, I also had the same questions. People not familiar with custom suiting associate wool with the bulky sweater they wear when the temperature drops.

Here’s some news for you! You can wear our suiting wool in ALL CLIMATES.

Before you get skeptical, here’s a little bit of education on what suiting wool is and why it’s an amazing year-round fabric.

  • Wool is a natural fiber. Unlike synthetic fibers (like polyester), the fibers in wool are naturally breathable. The natural crimping of the fibers allow air to pass through the fabric to cool the body.

  • Wool is durable. If you store and clean your suit properly, a custom suit can last for years.

  • Wool is naturally wrinkle free. If you have ever gotten a suit that wrinkles ever time you sat down, chances are that it wasn’t wool.

  • Wool has different weights. For optimal versatility, Koviem utilizes a light, all-season weight wool. The beauty of this fabric is that it is breathable enough to wear in the heat but insulating in cooler weather.

Here in New York, we experience huge swings between seasons. The sweltering heat in the summer is later eclipsed by the biting chill in the winter. Having an all-season, wool suit has been key for me as I’m able to wear my favorite pieces year-round.
