What makes Moleskin a great fabric?
Moleskin is a fantastic fabric for several reasons. The primary attraction is the incredible comfort and distinctive hand feel. Also, Moleskin is highly regarded because it wears so well; it looks smart but can also be dressed casually.
Moleskin garments are also known for their long life and lasting quality due to the hard-wearing durability of the densely woven cotton. Originally a workwear fabric; today Moleskin continues to find a home in heavy industrial garments such as foundry aprons and gloves for working with hot metal.
Moleskin has a rich tradition of use as field-wear for sporting folk because the dense weave makes it virtually windproof, making it a fantastic option for crisp fall and winter days. Surprisingly, due to the high air permeability of cotton, it also stays cool in spring or summer, therefore making it a great option all year round.
Finally, Moleskin is produced using a wide range of specifications; each grade is a unique expression of characteristics. Here at Kirsch Supply Co, we celebrate this fine fabric by honoring traditional and classic cuts, and by showing off its dynamic range in new and unique applications.
