Abstract:Inuit have relied on animals found in the Arctic for food and clothing for hundreds of years. This project attempts to discover which type of animal skin provides the most warmth for hunting clothing. Four types of hunting parka material has been selected to determine which one provides the most insulation; Caribou Skin, Polar Bear Skin, Seal Skin, and Store Bought Material.
