Evelene is a temperature-sensitive material, manufactured by the Wolomi Corporation. It has the property of reacting to temperature changes. The fabric consists of ring-shaped cells, around 10,000 per square millimetre. When the ambient temperature drops below 18°C the cells puff up, trapping air and making the material thicker and warmer. When the temperature rises above 18°C the cells shrink, expelling the air and thinning out, making the material thinner and cooler. No matter what the temperature Evelene is showerproof, being able to stop rain traveling at 30kmph.

Weight 0.6 kg
Per square meter
Ponsonby's Velvet fabric, made from the Ponsonby's Velvet plant, is a simple cloth and colonists made it their principal clothing material. Natural colors range from a pale tan (the commonest) to a deep green and a blood red (the most prized). Velvet may be colored with vegetable dyes, but synthetic dyes will poison the plant, causing it to disintegrate.

Velvet reproduces by spores, which form on the surface of the plant and drop away to be blown by the wind. A garment may "go lint" at any time. If a spore lands where food is available, it will grow. The velvet can use just about any organic carbon molecule as food including bearing lubricants, garbage, and petrochemical fuels.
