Long-sleeve thermal garments have been one of the most popular winter merchandise items for tradespeople over the last few years.
In recent years, we’ve been developing a consistent source of thermals, focusing on the 100% polypropylene performance fabrics.
The differences between polyprop and polyester:
- Polyester is a solid fibre, with minimal thermal properties,
- Polypropylene however, is a hollow-core fibre, giving it high thermal qualities, like the way thermal mugs/flasks/performance fabrics work.
- Polypropylene also has a much more comfortable/softer feel, while still very durable.
It’s very common for most suppliers in NZ to mix polyester with polypropylene in the garments (if any at all), which saves them money, at the expense of thermal qualities.
Also, working directly with the fabric factories, and dyeing mills, we’re able to source a retail-equivalent thermal garment, at a competitive cost against a polyester garment.
