    Goose bumps try to make you warm – the little muscles are attempting to raise the body hairs to trap warm air next to the body. Problem is that most humans are now essentially hairless and this has no real effect any more.
    I suppose that the bumps will lift the clothing a tiny amount and some extra warm air will be trapped between skin and clothing but they aren’t really strong enough to work properly.
    Oh well, pass another sweater.
