I never said it was sucking the heat out of you.
Maybe It would makes more sense if I had said "excess body heat". Sucking the body heat from you is absurd.
In my first post I was implying that there is a First Law of Thermal Dynamics, albeit subtly. By that logic, a sweater that "sucks" energy from your body would me illogical to make because it would use just as much energy (and usually then some) to suck the heat from your body as your body makes.
That's why electric companies don`t conserve the extra energy they make. It takes more energy to conserve it than to just let it pass through the power lines as heat.
