Woven Fabric
1. Process: fiber->yarn->greige->dying & finish->finished fabric
2. Abount "D": D is an abbreviation from "Denier", is an unit for chemical yarn. D

means the weight of 900m silk. The bigger "D" is, the thicker yarn is. For example,

75D is thicker than 50D.
3. Textile fiber:
1). Natural fiber:
-> Seed fiber: Cotton, Kapok.
-> Bast fiber=>Flax: Hemp, Ramie (China grass), Jute.
-> Leaf fiber: sisal hemp, Manila hemp
-> Fruit fiber: coconut fiber
Animal fiber:
-> Hair: Wool, rabbit hair, camel hair.
-> Tussah silk, Mulberry silk
Mineral fiber: Asbestos fiber
2). Man-made fiber:
Inorganic fiber: metal fiber, stone fiber, glass fiber, slag fiber...etc.
Recycled fiber:
-> Viscose fiber, viscose rayon.
-> cuprammouium rayon
-> accetate fiber
-> polynosic
Cellulose acetate fiber: two-acetate fiber, three-acetate fiber
Man-made protein fiber:
-> corn protein fiber
-> pea protein fiber
3). Synthetic fiber (or chemical fiber)
-> Polyethylene terephthalate: Polyester (abbr. "T")
-> Polyamide: Nylon (abbr. "N")
-> Polyacrylonitrile: Acrylic (abbr. "A")
-> Isotactic polypropylene (abbr. "PP")
-> Polyurethane elastomeric fiber: Spandex (abbr. "OP")
-> Vinylon (abbr. "V")
-> Polyvinyl Chloride fiber (abbr. "PVC")

4. Fabric finish:

-> PD: plain dyed

-> W/R: Water repellency (face side), Teflon (DWR)

-> W/R: Water Proof (back side)

-> Membrane: laminated with TPU membrane (waterproof & breathability)

-> UV Resistance: UPF+40, UVA <5% (For summer product line)

-> Dirty Resistance

About Merino Wool

  Merino wool comes from Merino sheep which regarded as having the finest and softest wool of any sheep. This wool is often made into technical underwear ideally for skiing, hiking, motorcycling or some outdoor sports as it has numerous natural attributes that make it one of the most comfortable of fabrics to wear.

It is highly breathable which means it can absorb perspiration and release into air. It can absorb liquid as much as 35% of it own weight unlike synthetics which does not remove sweat from your skin. By reduces the amount of sweat left on your skin, helps to reduce the amount of odor produced from your body.

The highly breathable attribute also offer great temperature control, it traps the air between fibers to keep you warm in cold environment and release heat when you feel hot.

The natural elasticity of Merino fiber offer high stretchability to wearer which means provide greater range of movement to wearer but then remain its shape.

Merino wool is softer than traditional wool as its fiber is much finer. To achieve next to skin comfort, diameter of fiber has to be consider as well as the fabric finishing. Our superfine merino wool is silky soft and itch-less.

Merino is so soft but also very durable. It can bends 20,000 times without breaking while cotton breaks after 3,000 bends.

It is 100% natural fiber, it will degrade to it component elements. On the other hand, most of the man-made fibers takes million of years to decompose.

Merino wool is often use as thermal base layer and accessories such as glove liners, socks, balaclava, sleeping bag liner.
