One the world's largest spinner of pure wool and wool blend worsted yarns; Südwolle Group has expanded its offering by launching a new technology for treating wool fibres.

“The Naturetexx Plasma-wool treatment is an environmentally sustainable alternative to the current industry standard superwash, chlorine-hercosett process,” Sudwolle said in a press release.

“In addition to securing the GOTS and Okeo-Tex certifications, Naturetexx has now been awarded the Bluesign certification as well,” it added.

"After receiving the Gold Award at Outdoor for Naturetexx, Südwolle is working with brands to help meet sustainability objectives and offer environmentally conscious products,” Hans-Georg von Schuh, director sales and marketing said.

“The process uses electricity and air instead of chlorine and is an environmental leap forward and sets a new standard for wool processing that allows us to meet the strict requirements for Bluesign, GOTS and IVN best certifications,” Schuh added.

Südwolle Group has also added capacity and diversified its product range by acquiring SAFIL and GTI Italian yarn manufacturers in an effort to leverage expanded global reach and further growth.

“With the global reach and the financial strength of Südwolle Group as a reliable industry partner, both SAFIL and GTI will be able to enter their next phase of growth, expanding within and beyond Europe,” the company stated.

Von Schuh further added, “Incorporating the SAFIL and GTI ranges, bring high-quality wool yarns and years of market and technical expertise to the Südwolle Group and we are excited about the possibilities this acquisition brings."

Südwolle Group is a well-established family owned business producing dyed and undyed worsted spun yarn for weaving, circular and flat knitting from pure wool and wool blends.

The company owns six principal brands: Südwolle, Biella Yarn, Yarn in Motion, Richter, Stöhr, and Soey each focused on different segments of the global textile market.

Together Südwolle Group, Safil and GTI employ 3,050 people globally with production facilities in Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and China. (AR)
