37°c / Heat Transferring Textile

37°c
37°c

37°c is a thermal conductive knitted textile. Its main application is a new breed of clothing - enabling thermal comfort by conducting heat from warmer to colder body parts. It solves the problem of cold extremities in a passive, natural way.

With Imperial College’s NanoHAC group and Gemma Brown from RCA’s textiles department, we developed a non-metal, affordable, durable and comfortable, highly thermal conductive fabric.

We created a prototype of a sock that transfers heat from a warm calf to a cold foot as a first product.

37°c is perfect for sports, common medical conditions (as Raynaud's syndrome) or everyday comfort and energy saving.
