Name a piece of clothing that exudes comfort, and you might just say "a hoodie”. So we at Fox Wilson set out to design the most comfortable women’s hoodie we could come up with but with a difference – performance. The result: the Thurloe.
First, we began with the material, and we went to Switzerland to find the best at renowned fabric manufacturer- Schoeller. We chose their EXP 4.0 Merino wool for this piece of our cycling wear collection because not only is it super soft but it’s lightweight with natural antibacterial properties. And that’s not all. Schoeller uses a 100% non-toxic process of dying to create a greener, more sustainable garment. Just something to make you feel that little bit better when you're out riding.
With the best quality Merino wool in hand, we then used the latest technology to create this casual cycling jumper. It’s a 3D knitting process which means there are no abrasion points and excellent ventilation.
This cyclist hoodie is great at combatting the elements and features extended cuffs for maximum protection. Like all the products in the urban cycling range, we have incorporated reflective Fox Wilson logos for much needed extra visibility.
The hoodie had its roots in the United States and was first produced in the 1930s for labourers working in freezing temperatures in New York. It took off as a fashion piece in the 1970s and has been a wardrobe staple ever since.
The Thurloe not only makes you feel great, but it will also make you look great too. This cycling jumper just skims the body with no unwanted bulk – relaxed yet stylish.
This must-have piece of casual cycling wear works great paired with our Chelsea Jeans or layered over a Cromwell T-shirt.
