Mink, This Holiday, Make Room for ExOfficio's "Irresistible" Travel Sweaters

TUKWILA, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2006 -- Mink coats and mufflers, make room for your replacements: ExOfficio's progressive Irresistible Collection for women featuring sweaters, beanies and scarves are cutting into this winter's wardrobes featuring lightweight, easy-to-care-for travel wear delivered in fashionable designs and boasting a surprisingly irresistible hand.

For Aspen, Colorado, Davos, Switzerland, or New York City blizzards, ExOfficio's aptly named "Irresistibles" are made of 'buttery soft' Chenille Feather Fleece fabric (98 percent nylon/2 percent spandex) offering a high warmth to weight ratio for thermal comfort, and lightweight convenience for easy packing. Irresistible sweaters range in weight from an average of a mere .5 to .9 lb/sweater, yet provide exceptional warmth. The Irresistibles also dry quickly and look great even after being crushed into luggage -- or gift-wrapped in snowflake wrapping paper.
