FiberVisions, producer of CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene staple fibre exhibited its collection of WoolVisions fabrics at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market which ran from January 21–24, 2015.

CoolVisions, the first disperse-dyeable polypropylene fibre has taken its superior performance qualities back to nature with new WoolVisions intimate blends of polypropylene and merino wool.

“The WoolVisions collection of knits and wovens raises the bar for natural performance fabrics by offering a host of advantages over pure wool and wool + synthetic blends,” FiberVisions says.

Merino wool, with its inherent qualities of warmth, moisture management, breathability, and natural elasticity, has become the choice of the outdoor industry for base layers and beyond.

New developments combining merino wool with technical synthetic fibers have propelled the natural performance trend into end uses such as running, biking, and urban lifestyle wear.

Susan Lynn, global sales and marketing manager for CoolVisions says, “As a disperse-dyeable, staple synthetic fibre, CoolVisions is ideal for spinning with fine-micron merino wool, offering colour and design options unavailable with solution-dyed polypropylene + wool blends, as well as an exceptionally soft hand.”

Polypropylene fibre scores highest among synthetic fibres on sustainability, since its manufacturing process, has a reduced impact on the environment, with low emissions and no toxic wastes.

Polypropylene is also highly resistant to stains and chemicals, requiring less energy use in home laundering.

Jose Fernandez, president of Global Merino which has developed a circular knits range using WoolVisions informs “CoolVisions polypropylene has better thermal performance than other synthetic fibres - cooling when it is warm and retaining heat when it is cold.”

“In a world where drying time and the mechanical movement of moisture is important, the WoolVisions blend performs better than the equivalent blend using other synthetic fibres such as nylon or polyester,” Fernandez adds.

Global Merino’s WoolVisions collection includes knitted jerseys, ponte di Romas, French terry, fleece, and rib. The company’s honeycomb jacquard was selected as an ISPO 2014 Top 10 fabric by the ISPO Textrends Jury.

Chia Her Industrial Group, a vertically-integrated Taiwanese spinner, weaver, and dyer, creates tops for its worsted WoolVisions yarns from 18.9μ washable merino wool and 2.5d CoolVisions polypropylene fibre.

The yarns are custom spun for knitting or weaving from Nm 1/20 to 1/70, in blends using 30 per cent or more merino.

Chia Her describes its WoolVisions woven plaids as possessing cotton-like qualities that are both light weight and soft, with breathable and thermal features.

At HerMin Textile, an innovative weaver of natural and synthetic fabrics in Taiwan, WoolVisions is combined with cotton to enhance a brushed flannel quality in 25 different colorways and patterns.
