PEONFX Knitted Hoodie
PEONFX is a small apparel company hailing from Singapore. Regular readers may remember us posting about them a while back, or reading about Kat in the recent issue. They recently showed us some love and sent one of their knit hoodies.
When I pulled it out of the envelope I was shocked, thinking they had sent some unbelievably expensive Merino wool garment. I was even more shocked, then, to learn it was 100% cotton! The fabric is soft, light and breathable—perfect for a cool summer night. Of course, being that it’s cotton it doesn’t have the same “warm when wet” properties that a wool garment has, but consider the environment it’s designed for. Singapore’s average daily temperature is above 80° throughout the year, and daytime temps soar to 90° in November. So lightweight cotton and linen are recommended.
In addition to the hood and rear pocket, the hoodie features a reflective strip sewn across the back. The hoodie retails for $59SGD, which is about $43 in the US. And yes, they ship worldwide. Check out peonfx.wordpress.com.
