Whatever it is wrapped in slows the loss of heat. It acts as an insulator.

To cool down, people need to sweat, as when it evaporates it cools the body down. On dry days, it is easy to evaporate, as there is little water vapour in the air. On a humid day, it is harder for the water to evaporate as there is already too much water vapour there. As less sweat evaporates, it takes longer for you to cool down.
