M is for Mi­cron

The di­am­e­ter of wool fi­bres is ex­pressed in mi­crons, with one mi­cron be­ing one-mil­lionth of a me­tre. Grow­ers al­ways try to pro­duce wool with the low­est aver­age di­am­e­ter. The term “su­per” refers to fabrics made from pure wool or wool blended with no­ble fi­bres such as cash­mere, mo­hair and silk.

P is for Pais­ley

Pais­ley is a com­mon clas­sic de­sign used in men’s fash­ion, pre­dom­i­nantly for ties, pocket squares and lin­ings, made pop­u­lar in the West in the 18th and 19th cen­turies. Al­though the English name orig­i­nates from the Scot­tish tex­tile town of Pais­ley, the de­sign is of Per­sian or In­dian ori­gin and is be­lieved to date back as far as 224AD. It is said to sym­bol­ise life and eter­nity.

Quilt­ing is the process of sewing an in­su­lat­ing layer be­tween two lay­ers of cloth and/or lin­ing. It’s sel­dom used for tai­lored gar­ments, but is of­ten used in win­ter out­er­wear.
