Riedel Textil is expanding its range to include two new functional first layer knit and apparel concepts for all season high performance. The German company offers both performance knits and seamless knitwear facilities to respond to the needs of today's sportswear brands from fabric concept to finished garment.
The company will takepart in Performance Days road show in November 2011.
Summer Action – Lightweight Functional Underwear
Summer Action is Riedel Textil's new range of knits for functional first layer apparel. The company combines two high performance fibers in this collection. Nilit Aquarius is a polyamide filament with a special cross section that maximizes the wicking surface area due to an increased fiber surface.
The micro-grooves transport moisture away from the body without the need for additional chemical finishes. The polyamide fiber is blended with a modified polyester polymer that has high shrinkage providing high bulk and volume without adding weight and improving air circulation within the knit construction.
The Summer Action range is based on varied knitting constructions that adapt to the specific physiological needs of the body, including very open mesh zones for breathability and air circulation combined with structured areas with distance floatings to avoid that the fabric cling to the skin. This concept offers high user comfort for functional first layer apparel for all seasons.
Summer Action technical data:
• blend 68% PA / 32% PES (PBT)
• lightweight double knit
• weight 100 g/m2 (a short-sleeve T-Shirt for women weighs only 60 grams!)
• antimicrobial finish to reduce odor
Winter Breeze – Warming Well-being Underwear with Merino Wool
The new Winter Breeze knits from Riedel Textil are based on a elaborate blend of fibers designed to offer multifunctional performance: the combination of the finest merino wool, super micro polyester and polyamide fibers guarantee optimum body climate management.
The Winter Breeze range combines high aesthetics and function to respond to the growing market for natural fiber performance wear. Riedel Textil combines different knit constructions to adapt to the specific needs of each zone of the body. The concept includes 3D knit structures with air chambers, elastic ribs for closer fits and open mesh structures for enhanced breathability.
Winter Breeze technical data:
• blend 34% Wool / 34% PA / 28% PES / 4% EL
