The new Südwolle Yarn Collection … Sustainability in Fokus!

The latest yarn collection from Südwolle Group – Nuremberg, Germany – shows a renewed interest in tradition and the essential characteristics of wool. The collection is also based on certified fibres produced with chlorine-free anti-shrinkage treatments for products that are easy to care for and wash at home at low temperatures.

Mixtures of wool and viscose that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and derived from responsibly-managed forests enable the production of clothes that are biodegradable at the end of their life cycle. The use of cationic Danufil deep dye viscose leads to a reduction of the energy required for dyeing processes since it can be dyed after being blended with wool. Also, the combinations create interesting melange effects, because of the variation in colour absorption.

Other sustainable new materials used in the collection include Seaqual – a polyester upcycled from marine plastic – and Q-Nova – a recycled, extremely durable polyamide filament with excellent dyeing effects. The collection is further improved by a range of yarns  that are made with patented Omega Twist spinning technology, which results in reduced pilling, increased elasticity, resistance and durability. The company has production facilities in Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, China and Vietnam and employs more than 3,000 people.
