HDWool®natural garment insulation is an innovative solution for the outdoor apparel market, offering superior comfort through exceptional moisture management, excellent insulation properties, resilience and full traceability of the product back to farm.

The internal wadding, available in regular and a recently developed light version, is a biodegradable and natural insulation that has been developed by a team with more than 127 years’ experience in the wool industry. HDWool® was created to address issues caused by traditional garment insulation in outdoor apparel, such as leaving the wearer feeling overheated, under-insulated and generally uncomfortable.

HDWool®is the ultimate breathable product and when used as internal insulation, enables thewearer to walk further, climb higher and explore longer. The special wool inside HDWool® is hand-selected from the right breed of sheep which grows the perfect type of wool for highly resilient, customizable, hard-wearing yet light outdoor performance wear. HDWool® is the ultimate natural product, because it comes from a renewable source, and at the end of its life, is entirely biodegradable. This renewable source is guaranteed to be entirely traceable, using the company’s unique organic tracer.

By using highly resilient wool, HDWool® offers the most insulation with the least amount of weight, and naturally retains its shape. HDWool® absorbs moisture from the air next to the skin and holds it away from the body, keeping the wearer more comfortable for longer. Holding up to 33 per cent of its own weight in water before it feels damp, HDWool® therefore has far superior moisture-management capabilities compared with traditional garment insulation currently on the market. The hand-selected wool is combined with a corn-starch based polymer which helps it maintain structure, creating a very warm yet light filling which traps air and absorbs moisture.

Genady Fedotov, from HDWool®, said: “We’ve had a fantastic year since launching HDWool® at ISPO in 2015. We’ve had a great deal of interest from outdoor clothing manufacturers and are working closely with partners to further develop HDWool® and supply a high-performance, reliable insulation that fits perfectly into their product.

“We’ve responded to the interest shown by developing a new, lighter version of HDWool® which enables us to offer even more solutions to companies looking for a natural, comfortable, renewable and traceable internal insulation. Our experience in the wool industry, our knowledge and our supply chain contacts mean we are perfectly placed to supply the right product for the right end-use, and offer after-sales support as we believe in working closely with partners from the start.”
