Fabric Performance for the Colder Climate

Fabric performance is measured in many different ways,
here are the main ones:

Touch (or handle), Drape, Tensile Strength, Stretch (or give)Water Resistance, Moisture Wicking, Heat Sensitivity, Color Fastness, Dimensional Stability, Crease Resistance, and Crease Recovery

For Example: 

Crease Resistance and Crease Recovery.

Crease Resistance describes a fabric's ability to avoid creases. All things being equal, the heavier the cloth, the more crease resistant that cloth will be. A twill weave will also outperform a plain weave or a jacquard weave (given that the weight is the same).

Long filament worsted wool fiber, a 2x2 tight weave construction and a superior finish will all add to a cloth's crease resistance.

Crease Recovery describes a fabric's ability to recover creases. Again, a twill weave will outperform a plain weave or a jacquard weave (given that the weight is the same).

Long filament worsted wool fiber, a 2x2 tight weave construction and a superior finish will all add to a cloth's crease recovery performance.
