    what are you wearing? Does it keep you warm? When you sleep at night, to you need something on top to help keep warm? Just think for a second, please, and all kinds of answers will pop out at you.

    Glass, ceramics, porcelain, plastics.

    Vacuum, like in most thermoses works well. Rockwool, fiberglass, asbestos, cellulose, polystyrene, urethane foam, and vermiculite are all materials that are also used for thermal insulation. Depends on costs, applications, etc.
