Using a new technique, Thümling Textilmaschinen and rothycon Roy Thyroff have come up with an invention in merino jersey. Using the warp knitting technique enabling the development of a high-performance, durable jersey fabric with natural fibre advantages. Sustainable and mesh-resistant which ensures that even if a hole forms, cloth will not unravel. It also displays improved qualities for pilling and friction.

They began their collaboration in mid-2020 for the production of modern textile machines and structures. The unique feature of the revolutionary merino jersey is the constellation of binding technology and thread layer that makes a very durable, lightweight and filigree practical garment made of natural fibres in the ready-to – wear clothing market.

Furthermore, the fabric is characterised by mesh strength. A special movement in the knitting process is the basis for the realisation of the yarn with its filigree and intricate hybrid fibre structures, which is a significant contrast to known knitting processes.

Merino wool can be manufactured as a pure natural fibre, or as a mixture of fibre and yarn combinations of merino wool and polyamide, providing greater strength and resilience. One can also digitally view and model the textile production on modern CAD systems.

The hard-wearing high-end merino sweater made in Germany, is very durable and reduces consumption. The yard ware can be further manufactured in various ways, and is especially suited for functional underwear, T-shirts, long-sleeved tops, light sweaters, outdoor jacket inlays, gloves or sleeping bags. any application in the textile field where highly durable products are used.

It can determine whether the cloth should be felt on the skin as warming or cooling, due to the finishing process during production. Merino wool is odourless, even after extended use, it does not absorb odours and thus requires less cleaning. It is soft to skin and comfortable.

It is well insulated from cold and heat, carries moisture and can hold in moisture up to a third of its dry weight without becoming clammy. Therefore, it cools by evaporative cooling in high temperatures. Merino wool maintains its shape, does not get charged electrostatically, is biodegradable and has a natural sun protection factor of density up to SPF 50.
