We are pretty sure Lynne was using "Tyvek" a thin insulating material used 
in houseing and also by many laboratories for uniforms.  This material is 
extra light, durable and you can now purchase jackets, lab uniforms,and 
other miscellaneous items.  DuPont is the maker and they sell the uniforms.  
We sent away for information, but didn't want to buy "100" lab uniforms

material now or not.  Their number is  1-800-359-6931.
