    made of/made out of

    Hello,

    Is there a difference between "made of" and "made out of"?

    E.g. Which of these phrases is the correct one?

    "These pants are made of wool" and
    "These pants are made out of wool".

    Thank you.

    Re: made of/made out of

    Both are good sentences.

    I am a native speaker and I think they mean the same thing. Maybe there is a small difference in register (the first might be a little more formal), but it is very small and does not really matter.

    Thank you so much for your reply :). I'm at ease now.
