Thermal clothing is the perfect way to keep extra warm throughout Autumn and Winter. They are also useful if you want to keep the cold out while playing winter sports or simply enjoying the outdoors. This is why you need to shop for high-quality thermal clothing. The next time you go shopping for winter thermals, keep these important tips in mind:
- Check the materials. When it does to thermal wear, it’s all about the fabric. Low-quality thermal underwear does not wick your sweat away, leaving you feeling wet and cold. It’s a good idea to spend a little bit more money on “wicking” thermal clothes made of materials that easily spread out moisture. You want a thermal garment that moves sweat away from your skin and dries quickly. Look for thermal clothing that is made with lightweight and stretchable materials like spandex and polyester, so they easily balance moisture and temperature. Try to avoid polypropylene because it tends to retain odour and becomes stinky.
- Fleece is fantastic and you can’t go wrong with it. It’s a tried and tested insulator, making it perfect if you spend a lot of time outdoors. It still performs even when wet, and it dries quickly because the material spreads the moisture out.
- Layering is the key to staying warm. Invest on thermal sweaters, turtlenecks, pullovers, and vests. If you are outdoors a lot, you need an exterior layer that repels water from snow, rain, or sleet, and effectively blocks wind.
- Protect your face, neck, head, and extremities. Did you know that 60% of your
body heat escapes from your head? Preserve that heat by wearing a thick,
insulating hat. A fleece neck gaiter or scarf is also recommended to cover your neck area. You also need insulated gloves and medium-weight or lightweight thermal socks.

For those looking for a design different to the beanie, we have this FLOSO Peaked Thermal Trapper Hat. With thermal warmth, this hat is perfect for even the coldest of days. A classic winter design, the trapper hat can be worn as a stylish accessory to a winter outfit (pair with a trench for example to achieve a more military look), or as a practical outdoor garment. The hat has warm fleece lined ear flaps which can be buttoned up when not as cold, whilst the hat also has a peak to provide extra protection from the elements. Choose from two designs.
New to our range, we have this fantastic FLOSO Ladies Polar Fleece Thermal Hat. With a smooth warm finish, this hat is available in four colours and would make a lovely, and practical, gift this winter. Again made with Thinsulate technology, it provides the ultimate in thermal warmth without compromising on design.
Another new addition from FLOSO is this Ladies Ribbed Floral Beanie Hat. This chunky knit ribbed beanie stretches to the perfect shape for its wearer, meaning it is more effective in maintaining heat as well as being more comfortable. The hat has a knitted floral pattern to the side and comes in four designs making it a stylish accessory for the winter.
FLOSO also provide a great range of Children’s Hats, including this Animal Design Winter Beanie Hat. The hat comes in four cute designs so they can pretend to be a little tiger, panda, bear or dog this winter. Made from a warm acrylic yarn, the hats also have ears. The hat stretches for extra comfort, also allowing room for them to grow!
Lastly for Kids, we have this FLOSO Peruvian Hat with Tassels. The popular Peruvian design keeps their ears and face warm. With a fun bobble and tassels adding to the design, this fairisle print hat is fleece lined for extra warmth.
