Winter draws on – petrochemical thermal vests

heattech advert.jpgThe ski season is upon us, and as I unwrap my new zip-locked foil-packed “Heattech” thermals from Uniqlo, my eye is drawn to the seven unique properties of this new hi-tech brand, of which one is:

“HEATTECH fibers contain natural amino acids derived from milk protein which make the material smooth and soft to the touch.”

 

And what can these new eco-friendly natural fibers be? Only our old friends: “39% Acrylic, 33% Polyester, 20% Viscose, 8% Elastane (Made in China)”
