I'm working on building a winter wardrobe for the Northeast, and I thought a good pants solution for cold weather is to wear wool tights under loose-fitting slacks. But that sounds like it could be a static nightmare unless I line the pants. So what types of linings are best for preventing static? TIA :)

The bemberg ambiance rayon lining is what I use for reduced static linings. Never used it in pants, but it might be worth a try?

What dmh1 said. I have used Logantex (brand) rayon Ambiance to line dressy wool pants, and it is wonderful, breathes, drapes nicely, feels and wears great.

No static, either, because it is a natural fiber.

A good rayon, or perhaps a crepe de chine silk?

Rayon and other cellulose fabrics (cotton, linens, bamboo) do not accumulate static. Rayon lining such as "Ambiance" or other bemberg types are nice and slick and would allow your tights and pants to remain independent of each other! Silks and other protein fibers are the static monsters, as is poly and usually acetate, nylons, and blends like cotton/poly. Static should only be a problem in dry winter air for you. When everyone is turning on their heat it seems to be the worst.
