The end of October brings cool weather to MoCo. It gets cool enough that nomadic dwellings require some kind of heating to remain livable.
However, before a nomad heats his house, he first takes steps to insulate his body to preserve the heat it generates.
The nomad wears clothing made from a variety of insulating materials. Below is a list typical materials, but it is not exhaustive. A more complete list might include synthetic materials, as well as more exotic natural materials like camel, and the elusive vicuña.
Herewith is the list of typical materials a nomad wears:
superwash merino wool
carbon (heated by battery)
Various rainproof material for shells
