FABRIC

We build apparel that honors the strength, athleticism, and beauty of women runners, and we believe this begins with the fabrics and materials we put in our garments. We are curators of premium, technical fabrics for sport and life, always searching for the holy grail of high performance, high design, and high comfort. Our fabrics include tried and true favorites that have been in Oiselle's line from the beginning, and an always evolving list of new fabrics and technologies designed to run, race, recover, and rumble.
 

COMPRESSION

NYELLE™ COMPRESSION

Our Nyelle compression is a high-performance, high-durability fabric that feels incredibly soft and comfortable on the body. It's ideal for garments used rigorously and worn in high rotation as it maintains its stretch, recovery, and softness wash after wash. It crosses effortlessly from run to recovery to rumble, and is our go-to for compression bottoms and sports bras.

REVERSIBLE BIRD HUG
(POLYESTER / SPANDEX)

reversible bird hug fabric

Double-sided ultra peached stretch knit amazingness. It's hard to put the feel of Bird Hug into words because superlatives fall short. When felt for the first time, usually the response is simply "ohhh" followed by a need to put it on. The unique poly-spandex content makes the fabric both lusciously soft and gently compressive. Better yet, as a dual-ply knit, it's reversible and two times the fun.

LUX™

Classic Lux™ (polyester / spandex)

The cashmere of running, Lux is soft like butter - but ready to sweat it out and meet the challenge of any hard effort. A staple in our line for years, we're constantly finding new ways to use Lux in everything from tops to tights and accessories. The poly content means it wicks and breathes, while the spandex allows that just-right stretch. Better yet, it gets better with age - durable and increasingly soft.

Our hot weather friends don't want to miss out on Lux love, so along came the perfect solution: a summer-weight version of the softest fabric known to womankind. All of the soft, all of the stretch, and all of the wonderful rich colors are what Light Lux brings to the table. Tech enough to run in, soft enough to sleep in, beautiful enough to wear any time at all.

Heavyweight Lux™ (polyester / spandex)

A weightier version of our classic weight, Heavyweight Lux is designed specifically to answer the needs of more supportive styles, such as tights, capris, and compression bottoms. But it's the same beautiful Lux you've come to know and love...  like a hug, exceptionally soft and durable wash after wash.

WAZZIE WOOL™
(MERINO WOOL / SPANDEX)

wazzie wool fabric

Wazzie Wool is our ZQ certified, responsibly sourced merino wool. Merino sheep have a light and breathable coat that keeps them comfortable in both the winter, as well as the hot New Zealand summer. That makes it an ideal performance fabric, helping runners stay both warm and cool as the temperature dictates. Merino wool breathes and manages moisture better than any synthetic fiber, and has the ability to absorb perspiration without making you feel damp and uncomfortable. It is also naturally odor resistant.

FLYOUT WOOL
(POLYESTER / WOOL)

flyout wool fabric

Wool is nature's performance fiber. Combined with polyester, it makes for a super fabric that's known for its versatility. Specifically, wool is the best at keeping you warm in cool climates, but also keeping you cool in warm climates. Flyout Wool was an instant winner in our line, not only for its ability to work in multi-climates, but also because it is exceptionally soft, and holds up - wash after wash. Even people who say they don't typically wear wool, love this fabric.
