Snippet*17  W O O L  for  S U M M E R
Text: Hina Nitesh

If I were to tell you that wool can be used for summer clothes, you will surely not believe me. But, I am not playing a prank. Rahul Mishra, the first non European recipient of the International Woolmark Prize has used merino wool to make clothes for summer.

The finely woven fiber comprises 90% wool and 10 % silk. The result is a sheer fabric which won the designer the honor.
