We design apparel that honors the strength and athleticism of runners. This means sourcing fabrics that combine high performance, high design, and high comfort. Our library of materials 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.

SEAMLESS

Arque Compression

(polyester / nylon / spandex)

Seamless garments are loved for allowing maximum mobility. Add compression and you have the ultimate combo: muscle support and freedom to move. Arque Compression is soft and supportive, with enough nylon to make bottoms and bras long lasting and ready for any challenge. An anti-stink treatment to the yarns also helps with endurance of... freshness!

Aqrue Plya

(polyester / nylon)

Arque is our one-of-a-kind collection, where seamless meets flawless. Chafe-free construction, anti-stink, and super wicking capabilities, without the overly compressive feel of other seamless on the market. The result is uniquely soft and lightweight garments with a beautiful fit and feel on the body. Our family of Arque fabrics each have a slightly different yarn blend optimized by style.

Arque Nyelle

(nylon / spandex)

Arque is our one-of-a-kind seamless collection created in close collaboration with our factory partner. Seamless production is very unique in that the main sections of every garment are knit in tubes. The tubes eliminate the need for side seams (thus “seamless”), making a completely chafe-free garment.

WOOL

Wazzie Wool

(merino wool / spandex)

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. 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.

Wazzie Wool Jacquard

(merino wool)

If your favorite sweater could turn into a high loft performance knit, that would be Wazzie Wool Jacquard. Each knit is custom created for Oiselle, expressing the verve of the woman athlete. Best of all, it's both sweater material, to pair with any bottom, or cold weather run layer, to pair with any fall or winter temp. Either way, the 100% merino wool is a performance badass, naturally moisture wicking and anti-stink.

Flyout Wool

(polyester / tencel / spandex)

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.

LUX + KNIT

Light Lux

(polyester / spandex)

Our hot weather friends don't want to miss out on the 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.

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.

Heavy 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.

Tee Lux

(polyester / tencel / spandex)

The perfect fabric for the perfect tee; soft, durable, drapey, takes color, and is up for a run at any time! Tee-Lux, rhymes with delux and you'll see why. The blend: poly, rayon, spandex. Pre-shrunk. Soft like butter. Sleepwear tested. Runner loved and approved!

Flyout Hoverfit ®

(polyester / tencel / spandex)

HoverFit is our most technical tops fabric designed for the rigors of long runs in variable climates. Designed to adapt so you can keep running, HoverFit's ultra light weight and unique know structure allows it to skim your body - easily managing the movement and evaporation of sweat, without clinging. This means that it feels like a cloud but wears like a protective shield.

OUTERWEAR SHELL

Katron Shell

(100% nylon)

Water and weather resistant. This nylon ripstop has been a staple in our line for years as it checks so many boxes: lightweight, smooth, durable, rich in color, easy to wash and care for. Either solo, or as a shell for insulated styles, it truly goes the distance.

Say Anything Shell

(polyester)

Based in Switzerland, Schoeller is a global leader in high performance, technical fabrics. As a 2.5 layered laminate, the Say Anything fabric uses their e3+ Protection Plus technology, designed specifically for high intensity output in high intensity weather. As you heat up, the textured interior keeps the fabric from sticking to your skin, while the specially designed laminate moves heat and moisture through the fabric while preventing rain and wetness from entering on the surface. At 100 g/sqm it is also exceptionally light, easy to pack and never weighing you down.

COMPRESSION

Essential Bird

(recycled polyester / spandex)

Our new polyester-based fabric feeds into our sustainability story in the best way possible. Essential Bird fabric is both bluesign approved and also made from recycled content. While mostly used as a solid, this fabric is also great in print form. Not only is Essential Bird compressive and high-performing, but it also has an incredibly soft handfeel, making it a must-have in your closet.

Nyelle Compression

(nylon / spandex)

Our Nyelle Compression is a high-performance, high-durability fabric that feels incredibly soft and comfortable on the body. 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.

Power Plya

(polyester / spandex)

A high performance knit with superior compression for muscle support. You'll find this technical fabric in our most supportive bras and compression bottoms. In addition, as an interlock, you don't have to worry about sheerness and see-through fabrics.

Plya Interlock

(polyester / spandex)

Plya Interlock is our pinnacle performance compression fabric. Created specifically for sport, it moves with you thanks to unparalleled stretch and recovery. It provides high support with a lightweight, technical, and supremely soft feel, and excellent coverage and colorfastness in both solid colors and vibrant prints.

Reflective Plya Interlock

(polyester / spandex)

We took everything we love about Plya Interlock (lightweight, soft, compressive) and worked closely with our mill to add a tonal print that is also highly reflective. During the day, the rich color and subtle print is on display, while at night, its reflective powers become brilliantly visible, making every outing more safe. Better yet, the reflective print is highly stable, and stays bright for the long-term, wash after wash.

Herringbird

(polyester / spandex)

The tradition of a herringbone design with all of the advancements of high performance fibers. Herringbird brings depth, texture, and visual interest to the most wonderfully stretchy fabric that is also compressive and ready to move your sweat.

STRETCH WOVEN

Breeze Woven

Breeze Woven is the perfect lightweight and flowy fabric for styles that cross from run to rumble. A subtle grid pattern is beautiful in both solid colors and with our signature prints.

Flyout Stretch Woven

Featherweight and durable, Flyout Stretch Woven was inspired by our Roga fabric and optimized for hot weather running and those who prefer and ultralight fabric. It offers high-stretch, moisture wicking, and quick dry performance for road or trail.

Roga Stretch Woven

(polyester / spandex)

Our beloved Roga fabric is unique thanks to a high level of spandex - 2-3x higher than most stretch wovens. The result is a beautiful, performance-optimized fabric with a high level of structure, ideal for shorts, dresses, skirts, and other pieces that need to have structure on the body without added weight. Roga fabric deftly manages moisture, without clinging, and dries quickly.

MIDWEIGHT

PNW Fleece

(polyester)

Made in collaboration with our friends at Polartec®, this fleece stands out. Whereas some fleeces can feel dry, and often pill, our PNW Fleece has a soft, sumptuous touch, and holds up to daily wear without pilling. With a subtle texture, and slight heathering to its color, it keeps on keeping on - even without regular washes. We put this in all our mid- to outer-layers that keep us toasty through PNW (and worldwide) cold climates.

NON-STRETCH WOVEN

Distance Woven

(polyester)

The Distance Woven is exceptional for being lightweight, flowy, and extra durable, whether that's holding up run after run, or wash after wash. In addition to being great for all the miles, this woven is also loved for its ability to take deep or bright colors with exceptional vibrancy.

Whirlwind

(woven ripstop)

Designed to protect from windy elements while still ventilating to prevent overheating. Our Whirlwind fabric is Woven Ripstop that will keep the high winds out while also featuring some rain resistance. The key to performance outerwear is to keep the runner warm and protected without sacrificing breathability. The Whirlwind performs right in that sweet spot making it an ideal choice for a year-round protective layer.
