Is wool or fleece warmer?
Fleece. This warm, fuzzy material is strong, holds in heat and dries quickly. The structure of fleece contains air pockets much like the insulation in a home and is made of a wool and synthetic fiber blend. These air pockets assist in trapping in heat, which keeps you warmer than traditional wool and other fabrics.
Mid layers are the garments whose primary purpose is insulation. They are generally worn on top of a base layer and, when conditions dictate, beneath an outer 'shell' layer. Unlike base and outer layers, you might wear more than one midlayer at a time if it's cold enough.

Layered clothing is a term describing a way of dressing using many garments that are worn on top of each other. Some of the layers have different, largely non-overlapping, functions. Using more or fewer layers, or replacing one layer but not others, allows for flexible clothing to match the needs of each situation.
- Softshell Jackets are designed for use outdoors as part of the layering system, and can be used alone, ideal for aerobic activity in light weather conditions if they are water repellent and highly breathable, or as an insulating layer under a 'hard shell' outer jacket.
- Within the first five to seven years of its life (approximately the time it takes to weigh a pound), a lobster may shed its shell up to 25 times. However, as the lobster gets bigger, the number of molting events decreases. Adult lobsters only molt about once a year to once every two years.
- By the time lobsters reach the age of seven, they molt once a year, and after that, once every two to three years, growing larger with each successive shedding of its exoskeleton. The largest lobster on record, caught in Nova Scotia in 1977, weighed 44 pounds, six ounces and measured 3.5 feet in length.
4 layers of clothing i.e. Base wool layer, regular clothes, wool or fleece mid layer and water repellant shell layer with winter accessories is ideal. It is important to keep your ears, fingers and toes covered if temperatures fall below 5 degrees.
- A hot summer day in Sacramento would be close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or 38 degrees Celsius. A comfortable room temperature would be around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or 21 degrees Celsius. A cold and windy winter day would have a chill factor that might be below freezing at 23 degrees Fahrenheit, or -5 degrees Celsius.

- Unlike conventional jackets a softshell jacket does not have a lining but instead is made by bonding two layers of fabric together. They are designed to bridge the gap between a fleece, which offers less water resistance and protection from the wind, and a waterproof jacket which is less stretchy.
