Sofileta Cooling Fabric is a new line of high performance cooling fabrics made with Luxicool, a fiber capable of reducing skin temperature, co-developed with Belgian fiber producer Luxilon. For Spring 2013, Sofileta is also introducing a range of ultra fine performance knits that will be launched at Performance Days.

Sofileta Cooling Fabric
For athletes, keeping the body cool is one of the most important aspects of performance and comfort. Sofileta Cooling Fabric provides a highly effective and innovative solution, based on the properties of Luxicool, a copolymer developed by the Belgian fiber producer Luxilon, in partnership with Sofileta.

Sofileta Cooling Fabric is capable of reducing skin temperature by about 1.5 degrees below standard performance fabrics (in tests conducted by the Swiss textile institute EMPA). The effect is immediately transmitted to and felt by the skin. These spectacular results led to an innovation award at TechTextil Frankfurt in 2011.

Sofileta Cooling Fabrics are available in a variety of knit patterns, including open structures and spaced or double spaced knits designed to offer the best combination of moisture management, ventilation and durability. The cooling effect of Sofileta Cooling Fabric is increased by high evaporation, a process that absorbs heat. High performance moisture management therefore boosts the sensation of coolness. Since the cooling effect is based on a polymer and not on a finish, it functions for the life of the fabric, and is not impacted by washing.

Performance knits in ultra fine gauges
Sofileta is introducing a new range of ultra fine stretch knits for Spring 2013. The company has developed high performance moisture management jerseys made on gauge 62 knitting equipment, the finest gauge machines available today. Though extremely lightweight, the compact knit construction of these fabrics makes them opaque and not transparent. They also boast high elasticity and have a very smooth and soft hand.

The company will take part in Performance Days road show in November 2011.

Founded in 1911, Sofileta is celebrating its centennial in 2011, while still producing all fabrics in the Isere region of France. Domestic production is a deliberate strategy implemented by the family-owned company to guarantee a high quality and sustainable business. Sofileta's many activities cover weaving, knitting, dyeing, finishing and laminating. The company employs 230 people and 70% of its products are exported.

Sofileta invests heavily in research & development, a core principle of the company's corporate philosophy. Sofileta is part of several international advanced research networks.
