Warmest Materials for Winter

With the temperatures dropping slowly but surely, there’s no time like the present to swap out your lightweight shirts for woolly jumpers.

After all, staying warm is just as important as staying on trend. Luckily, the 2forjoy team are the fashion gurus you need to ensure that you are able to put together a winter outfit without sacrificing your style this November! Read on as we go through some of the best materials to incorporate in your wardrobe…


As one of the thinner winter materials, cotton works best when it is layered under or over other garments. After all, a cotton sweater is relatively thin. If you want to incorporate cotton garments into your winter wardrobe, try wearing under a jumper for an extra layer of protection or place it over the top of a shirt in order to bulk up formal office attire.


As one of the softest materials on the market, wool comes in a variety of different forms which means that you are able to pick and choose which one is most suited to your preference. For example, merino wool is an incredibly fine type of wool and can be worn directly against the skin due to this quality. One of the most popular types of woollen garments is a cable knit sweater. You can find cable knit sweaters made from many different types of yarn and the knitting pattern makes the garment a heavier, warmer item of clothing which is great for layering.


As a material that is crafted from the fine hairs of cashmere goats, clothing that is considered genuine cashmere is remarkably easy to damage. It is often thicker than merino wool and it takes the wool from 3 goats to make one cashmere jumper. The price tag reflects this. With this said, it is incredibly effective at retaining heat which means that it is considered a staple in many winter wardrobes.

In the UK, it is cold for almost twice the length of time it is warm which means that your winter essentials must be able to withstand the test of time. Here at 2forjoy, we have a wide range of garments crafted from a range of thermal materials including our Oversized Polo Neck Jumper made from a blended yarn of cotton and wool. Designed with our slow fashion philosophy in mind, we are certain that our clothing will stick around for the foreseeable future!
