    contacted the official Isaia page on Facebook, which I think is one of the showrooms? apparently the aquaspider does have teflon.. i knew the wool felt odd to the touch, almost as if it has a non-stick coating.. I'm a little disappointed, as the suits fit me perfectly. If it is indeed the teflon that creates that smooth finish feel it really cheapens the suit, in my opinion.

    There's no way a natural material could bead water like that, except maybe a wax based coating, but that would wear off very quickly. Even if it's not Teflon, it's certainly a man-made water resistant coating, and that's going to impact the feel and appearance of the cloth substantially.
