Clothes - Clothing For Winters And Summers

The clothes we wear changes gradually as the seasons’ transform. Have you ever wondered how different the winter dresses are from the summer dresses? In winters we wear woollen pullovers and jackets along with long pants and stockings, while in summers we wear cotton shirts that can allow air to pass through or dry the sweat easily. In rainy seasons, we cover ourselves with raincoats that do not allow water to pass through. Along with the kind of clothes, the fabric of these clothes also changes with the season. In this article, we shall discuss the kind of clothes and fabrics we use in different seasons.

Types of Clothes

Given below is the list of summer fabrics.

Cotton

Cotton clothes are woven such that they allow good air circulation, thus allowing the skin to breathe. It absorbs moisture from sweating and keeps the skin dry and cool. It resists dust and mites, preventing skin irritations and infections during summers.

Cotton

Jute

Jute fabrics are good insulators of heat and provide UV protection. They have low thermal conduction and do not degrade upon exposure to the sunlight. The fabric is inherently cool and prevents skin irritations.

Linen

Linen is extracted from the step of flax plants. It is stronger than cotton but very soft in touch. It possesses natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, thus preventing rashes and skin allergies. Moreover, the pores allow the skin to breathe and do not trap sweats, thus keeping the skin dry and cool in hot summers.

Linen

Silk

Silk fabrics are natural anti-allergens and inhospitable to mites thus prevents from skin irritation. The texture discourages the growth of bacteria and keeps the skin free from rashes and irritation in summers.

Bamboo fibre

Bamboo fabrics are manufactured from the pulp of bamboo plants. They are grown naturally without fertilizers and pesticides. Clothes made of these fabrics are softer than cotton. They absorb sweat and moisture twice as quickly as cotton, thus keeping the skin dry. It inhibits the growth of bacteria and is considered the best for skin comfort and hygiene.

Banana Fibre

Banana fibres are obtained from the white trunk of the banana trees. They are biodegradable in nature and absorb moisture well. The outermost layer of the stock is used to produce mats and carpets whereas, the inner layer yields softer fabrics for clothing.

The above fabrics were examples of the fabrics that we wear during the summer season. Now, below is the list of fabrics that we wear during the winter season.

Wool

Wool is manufactured by processing the hair of sheep or goat. The hairy skin of a sheep has two types of fibre, the coarse and fine, of which the latter is used to make wool. These fabrics trap a lot of air which is a poor conductor of heat, which acts as an insulator against the cold conditions.

Wool

Fur

This fabric is made up of animal hair, mostly mammals, particularly those with extensive body hair coverage that is generally soft and thick. The animal fur consists of three layers, short down hairs, the long guard hairs, and the medium awn hairs. The hair traps air and insulates against cold in the winters.

Artificial Wool

Artificial wool such as tweed, flannel, cashmere, gabardine, chenille, felt, plaids, mohair etc. are artificially produced to form threads, which are then woven to form the cloth. They act as a substitute for natural materials such as wool and fur and have similar insulating property against cold and moisture.

Artificial Wool

Polyester

Polyester fabrics are made by knitting polyester yarns. The material provides a good insulation against the wind and can be made into different thickness depending upon the intensity of cold.

Polyester

Nylon

Nylon clothes are tough and strain resistant. They do not absorb moisture and act as a barrier for wind. They are mostly used as the outer layer of the clothing.
