These fabrics are intended for use between the outer- and base layers. They are used for warmth retention and include mainly fleece or other knitted fabrics. These fabrics can be brushed or bonded, but cannot be coated or laminated.

Midlayer November 2019

It is commendable that among these fabrics very few manufacturers have any brushed polyester fleece articles on show. Brushed sides increasingly come from the natural fibre, Tencel. Thermoinsulation is generated by merino blends and three-dimensional structures, while quilted variants with fillings are also on view, whereas natural materials such as hemp, soy, merino or organic cotton are smooth on the skin. The application of graphene is new, promising good heat and odor management properties.

Midlayer May 2019

Lightness plays a major role in summery mid-layers, elasticity and structure. Whether synthetic fibres, wool, or cotton mixtures, three-dimensional, structured surfaces or reverse sides are key. In addition to spacers, the focus is moving to newer materials with fillings and quilting, along with diverse jacquards. Biodegradable fibres are present here, with rapidly degradable nylon alongside Tencel, Kapok and Wool. Brushed reverse sides are a thing of the past, and thus harmful micro-fibres are no longer being released.
