Wool Wool Glorious Wool
So, we have an extensive range of knitwear at Norma James, from chunky knits to fine knits, in all colours of the rainbow. This got me to thinking why is wool warm? Why do we have warm woolies?
Wool is a good insulator which means it does not allow heat to transfer through it easily, the fibres trap air which makes if difficult for the heat to escape.
If you think about it, wool is a very natural, organic material, once processed it becomes the wool we use to manufacture certain clothes, and of course some wool such as cashmere or merino wool is a premium product and very much at the luxury end of the market.
The art of knitting has also seen a resurgence in recent months and I’ve seen an abundance of knitting clubs and especially “knit & natter”. Which sees like minded people learn from each other new knitting techniques, share patterns and in some cases knit for charity.
Wool is more popular for sweater and cardigans, although it can be used for dresses, handbags, socks and of course hats and scarves.

One of our most popular ranges of knitwear has to be Barbour, this iconic brand not only brings you wholesome styles but also a colourful range for men and women. This is just one of the many brands we stock, and another favourite of ours is Ginger Toby, however an added bonus with this range are the features on the back, from gathered ties to neat bows and inverted pleats. I also love the vibrant colours it comes in from zesty lime to cobalt blue.
