being made of two
separate fabrics, it
is warmer than a
single fabric of
twice the thickness.
The good house
wife puts a double
blanket on the bed
for the same reason.
REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR
The outer fabric in Duofold excludes
the cold, the inner retains the heat.
BWFfltB being made from two light
fabrics inter-knit, it has warmth with
out bulk or weight, the inner fabric
being made of very fine combed cotton
and attached to the outer fabric of wool,
keeps the wool from shrinking. The
good housekeeper, in washing a piece
of lace, sews it to a cotton fabric to
eep it from shrinking.
OUFOLO being made with the inner fabric of very fine cotton, it is soft and can
therefore be worn by those who would like to wear wool but think they cannot.
0UF01D has twice the absorbing and ventilating qualities of a single fabric.
Two Piece and Union Suits
being made of two
with the air space
between, bears to
the human body the,
same relation as
the double window1
of the house. Air
being a non-con
ductor of cold, the garment being made
of two separate fabrics with the air
space between is warmer than a single
garment of double the thickness,
MMFIIB'S inner fabric of cotton with
air cells between the impurities of the
body are absorbed by the outer fabric,
while in the ordinary single garment
the impurities are retained next to the
