 Natural fibres resist static better.  Synthetics are pretty much a necessary evil outside, but for indoors I try to avoid them.  I can't do wool either, although Alpaca is better than sheeps wool.   Linen and flannel are good too.

If you have to do synthetics try to at least do a high cotton percentage blend.  


 

Um…so indoor and outdoor clothes aren't the same? I mean, obviously the *outer* layer is different but…moving to WA has made me feel very stupid. lol


 Well I don't know how cold it's expected to actually get where you are.... so you may not need quite as much as we do in full blown winter


 It also depends on whether you like to do outdoor activities in winter, and their energy output.  


 Yep!  So many factors go into a winter wardrobe.... These days, like Homer, I quite enjoy the 30 second commute to the office and the lack of need to go outside if I don't want to.

 You've never lived out west.  lol.  It's bad here in the more eastern areas, but out west the dryness is soooooo much worse.


 True, and Ottawa is definitely known for cold, humid weather.  Indoors, it depends on whether the house has a humidifier to balance the heat.


 Yeah, do I have a humidifier on my furnace.  Air was too dry otherwise. Had to get up and drink water in the middle of the night, my skin was very dry. Much better since I installed that some years ago.

 Yeah, the winter blankets are super important.

But seriously, if you don't have a pair of warm slippers, get some.  Keeping your feet warm is super important.


I grossly underestimated the amount of winterization my wardrobe would need. And also the amount of polyester said winterization would entail.


 I would avoid polyester if you can.  It's gonna get dry as the temperatures drop, and that stuff attracts static like a bitch

 Yeah... there were days when I was living in a condo in Calgary that I would wake up to indoor humidity levels of like... 17%.  It was pretty brutal


I'll be zapping the dog at 17% indoors.

They should have pulled the goalie when they had a power play and gone for the win.

That pesky expanse of flat land in the middle of the continent.

I'm surprised there's not a name for the easterly winds in WA, they are absolutely no different from the Santa Anas in CA.
