At What Temperature Should You Wear a Wool Coat?
Wool coats are best worn at cold temperatures during the cold winter season. Overall, they are a great choice when picking a winter coat as they are water-resistant and can handle a little unexpected down pour. Wool is also one of the best insulator materials when it comes to coats, meaning an extra layer of wool over your outfit can really help keep you snug.
The Duffle Coat
If you are looking for a coat that can withstand colder temperatures, the duffle coat is a great choice. It’s a thick coat that you can button up to the top that was made to withstand very cold temperatures. The beauty of having a customizable coat, you can adhere to your needs. For example, the duffle coat, and a lot of our other coat that are made to keep you warm, comes with the option of whether you would like lining. The lining is an extra layer of comfort that is silky but its sole purpose is to add an extra layer of insulation to the coat.
Every region experiences a different kind of winter. If you live in a location with a severe cold climate, you may want to opt for coat layering. By customizing your coat, you can plan to make room for layers if the winters are severe where you are, or have it custom to fit perfectly over a tight-fitting outfit so you don’t lose shape even while wearing a coat. This means whatever coat you choose; you can adapt it to suit the weather or situation you would like to wear them in regard to temperature. You can also add lining to your coat. In this way you add another layer to your coat which keeps you warmer.

How to Wash a Wool Coat
1. Remove Pills
If your coat has been through a lot, it will have pills hanging lose. In that case, it's best to remove them to not only makle the coat look neater, but to also simplify the washing process. You can remove pills using a garment brush or a fabric shaver.
2. Clean Stains
Spot clean any stains on your coat. You can do this using a mild stain bar or laundry detergent (Castile soap, or Woolite) and dabbing the spot with water. Harder stains, such as a grease or blood stain may need a stronger cleanse, involving white vinegar or rubbing alcohol.
Fill a bathtub or sink with lukewarm water (Make sure the washing space is clean ) and pour 1/2 a cup of wool wash. Place the coat in the water and let it soak for 30 minutes. Leave it in the water and squeeze certain areas of it, be catious not rub or twist the fabric as this can damage the wool.
If your detergent isn't rinse free, take out the coat, clean the basin/bathtub , only to refill with lukewarm water. Place the coat inside the water and rinse until there are no more suds.
Once you've rinsed your coat, it's time to let it dry. Attention - do not use the dryer! The harsh process will damage the fibers and could shrink the item. Instead, gently squeeze out any moisture (don't wring) and lay it flat on a clean surface. Flip it every 12 hours to dry evenly. Depending on the thickness of your coat, it can take a few days to dry.
