From what I've read, certain weaves such as fresco and fibers such as mohair breathe better than pure worsted wool and are better suited for warmer weather. Â I think that worsteds generally have to be in the 8oz/230g to 9oz/260g range to be considered tropical weight. Â For fresco weave or mohair blend fabrics, do I need weights that low to remain cool? Â Of that fabrics that I've seen in certain collections, most frescos don't go below 11.3oz/320g weights and most mohairs don't go below 10.5oz/300g weights. Â I've even seen mohair blends as heavy as 15oz/420g which leads me to believe that those blends are either much cooler than pure worsted or some people like mohair enough to want it for winter suits. Â Any pointers would be appreciated.
