Cifra to unveil a project on wool at ISPO Munich
Cifra will unveil a project dedicated to wool with natural comfort in mind at ISPO Munich 2018 during January 28-31, 2018. For the first time in history a 100 per cent Merino wool thread, developed by the definitive benchmark company Schoeller, is being used in Warp Knit Seamless technology in order to create garments that are technical, yet all-natural.

These garments are also able to maintain a constant body temperature thanks to thermal insulation that generates an ideal micro climate, allowing for total breathability and the absorption of perspiration and humidity. Combined with Elastane, it guarantees a perfect fit and total comfort during physical activity - ideal for baselayer clothing, yoga wear and leisurewear.

In addition to the Merino/Elastane project, Cifra is unveiling an absolute novelty which merges the warm and cosy, natural spirit of Merino wool with the technical aspects of Tencel - the fibre of natural origin which is completely renewable, with recyclable eucalyptus wood as its base. The feel of the fabric is very light and pleasing to touch, which makes it wonderful for weightless, 'impalpable' baselayer for comfort. Tencel fibre is able to absorb excess moisture in a natural way and move it to the outer part of the garment, ensuring comfort and freshness to the person wearing it, in all seasons. Thanks to this perfect moisture management, bacterial proliferation is reduced without the addition of any chemical additives.

Warp Knit Seamless is among the most recent in textile innovations. It is one of the most significant and extreme so far. In the sports world, this innovative technology plays a fundamental role in the creation of unique, high performance, functional, yet contemporary styled garments which also guarantee unprecedented comfort and durability.

The fact that there are no seams is what prevents skin irritations, and the ventilation openings ensure that moisture stays under control, with the apparel still conforming perfectly to the body like a second skin. This new generation of sportswear is ideal for training, yoga, cycling, running, and for a variety of other sports.

“With a production capacity of around 10,000 articles of clothing per day”, as underlined by Cesare Citterio, CEO of Cifra Spa, “combined with special know-how, Cifra leads the way in terms of style, but also in production volumes, so much that over the course of 2017 turnover grew by over 70 per cent, and with recent investments made in new machinery our position has been strengthened even more. Our design department, with its ten CAD stations, creates new, customised models every day for the most important brands worldwide, in both fashion and sports related sectors”.

Among the advantages of WKSTM technology, three fundamental aspects must absolutely be highlighted: the absence of a diameter(the jacquard system allows for diameter sizes to be decided upon at will. Different diameters can be worked at the same time (ex: body and sleeves, and gloves or leggings). The possibility of creating models and designs without any limit constrictions (it is possible to design any type of design or logo without any limits in terms of size and shape). The garments are warp-proof (thanks to the WKS technique, garments are more wear resistant, and in the case of holes or tears the warp-knit mesh material still does not fray). (SV)
