Brescia - The latest seamless knitting technology from Santoni has played a key role in the launch of a new prototype collection developed by The Woolmark Company.
Designed by innovative knitwear designer studio Studio Eva x Carola, a long term collaborator with Santoni, the new collection illustrates the full potential of Merino wool used in technical seamless performance apparel.
Introducing Merino wool to Santoni’s latest seamless knitting machines, the Woolmark Company’s processing innovation team says it saw a gap in the market for seamless yoga apparel made from Merino wool.
The original performance fibre, Merino wool is soft next to skin, breathable, naturally elastic and odour resistant. In addition, the eco-credentials of the fibre - namely being 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable - align with yoga’s connection with both nature and mindfulness.
