Knitting sector benefits from burgeoning Cambodia market
The number of knitting mills and other garment and footwear factories in Cambodia increased by more than 20 per cent between the end of 2013 and March 2015, allaying fears that increased minimum wages for workers would lead to a decline of the sector and drop in investment in the industry.
Südwolle Group, the world's largest spinner of pure wool and wool blend worsted yarns for the circular and flat knitting sectors, has developed a new, environmentally friendly treatment technology which the company says delivers fibres with the same strength, the same or better pilling performance, and improved ability to absorb moisture than conventionally processed yarns.
