This year, The Woolmark Company demonstrated the versatility of Merino wool through its extensive and novel use opportunities. Innovations can be introduced into Merino wool fabrics at any stage in the manufacturing process to create versatile, cutting edge and clever alternative to other fibres. Each innovation brought to life the natural properties of Merino wool, such as stain resistant, odour resistance, moisture wicking and breathability.

The first ever wind and water resistant Optim fibre jacket, seamless wool yoga apparels, Merino wool shoes and Knitwarm, a first-of-its-kind, patented self-heating textile, will be on display.

As the sports and outdoor industry continues to grow at a rapid rate, Merino Wool is proving itself well-placed to meet the performance needs of both brands and consumers. We are delighted to collaborate with brands and manufacturers to showcase the versatility of this natural fibre. Through India Fashion Forum we are able to share with the Indian audiences a fresh view on Merino wool and its many possibilities," explained Gianchandani. (RR)
