MASSACHUSETTS – US Army researchers are hoping that a new wool-based fabric variant will improve flame resistance, breathability and moisture wicking properties in combat uniforms for troops.

The Army is in the process of developing a flame resistant combat uniform which doesn’t need a finishing treatment to protect it from fire.
