Cotton

100% COTTON & COTTON ELASTANE BLEND JERSEY: Knit fabric

100% COTTON FLANNELLETTE: Woven Fabric

Everyone loves to snuggle up in a flannel during the cooler months. Flannel is very warm to sleep in, the brushed cotton has a comfort and extra softness that is just so cuddly. There are different weight of flannel available for those who get hot in bed. Why is some flannelette softer than others? Some are brushed on both sides which make it feel super soft, which is what we do. Due to the open weave of the fabric, it is susceptible to shrinkage.

On yarn dyed flannelette, designs can only be stripes or checks. The yarn is fixed first then dyed women into a stripe or check pattern. This flannel has a slightly finer texture to the printed cotton flannel but is just as soft and warm. In the Winter season, this long lasting twill weave is a customer favourite fabric.

HOMEBOOTS: SUEDE, AUSSIE WOOL LINED, EVA SOLE
100% AUSTRALIAN SHEEPSKIN / 100% SUEDE

We highly recommend treating your boots with a water/stain repellent treatment before wear. Once treated, you can use a damp cloth to gently wipe away spills or marks. When you first try on your PA Boots they should be a snug fit. Within a short period of wear, the natural wool lining will settle to the shape of your foot & give you the perfect fit. Take care – the bold colours used on our luxurious suede may rub off onto light clothes & furniture.

RUBBER EVA SOLE

EVA is one of the many quality soling products that we use to manufacture our footwear. It offers excellent comfort and flexibility for the shoe wearer and is extremely tough and durable with the advantage of being lightweight. It has a non-marking PA Tread pattern sole that is suitable for indoor & outdoor use.

'EVA' is the abbreviation for 'Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer'.
