Stoll merges sports with classics
Sunday, 01 November 2009

The latest knitwear collection from Stoll ? the German-based builder of v-bed knitting machines ? is an elegant merger of sports inspired casual clothing with classic tailored lines for the winter season.

The new retro influenced collection from Stoll features neat, tailored outlines combined with functional details such as draw cords and quilted effects from the sportswear sector. In particular Stoll has applied felting techniques to the fabric surface to give knitted fabrics with a woven look. Fabric surfaces have also been partially treated with a ?needle-punch? technique to achieve an interesting but subtle contrast between felted and non-felted areas. Along with the special visual effects, the treated fabrics have a high shape stability and very good heat insulation.
