Summary of news published in Week 46-2015

NEWS THIS week that Italian circular knitter Jersey Lomellina has diversified its product range into fitness wear fabrics provides further confirmation that formerly clear demarcations between different types of bodywear fabrics are becoming increasingly blurred. Only a few years ago, the functional qualities of different fabric types sufficed to place them into specific categories. Today, as different fabric applications call for an increasingly diverse range of functions, specific areas of  fabric performance, such as moisture control, heat retention and even anti-bacterial action, are essential elements of performance for an increasingly varied range of end-uses. This allows fabric suppliers to select such characteristics as fibre type, cross-sections, constructions and a broad range of finishing options to supply fabrics with  the precisely appropriate performance to meet the needs of specific end-uses. This means that a fabric mill needs to modify only a limited number of criteria in order to produce fabrics with the ideal characteristics for specific applications. Thanks to technological progress; it is now easier than ever before for a fabric supplier to propose products that meet more precisely the needs of manufacturers as well as of consumers.
