Innovations in the wool industry mean wool is increasingly being used in the production of warm weather clothing. Today, you’ll find it in activewear apparel as well as suits, dresses, and t.shirts.
We’re not talking about the type of yarn used to knit your chunky winter woollies, but rather wool in the less than 20 micron range. The micron refers to the fibre diameter. Microns around 18 to 19 are best for superfine yarn. These microns produce wool fabric that is lightweight, drapes beautifully, and doesn’t hold wrinkles. As an added bonus, wool fabrics also provide increased protection from the sun as they absorb UV radiation.
