Fibre for Fashion and Function
Edition 87
The Woolmark Company and Shima Seiki come together for a special talk dedicated to Merino wool
Natural, sustainable, ideal in any context: from lifestyle to sportswear, from summer to winter. Merino wool is the quintessential performance fibre, but what are the new challenges? Which production scenarios are we heading towards?
These are the topics of "Fibre for Fashion and Function: Knitted wool technology for people on the go". 

The special talk hosted by Matteo Minà, journalist and contributing editor at MF Fashion, talks with two of the key players on the international textile scene: Birgit Gahlen, Research and Development Manager (Europe), The Woolmark Company, and Vittorio Branchizio, Creative Director of Shima Seiki Italia. The talk analyzes the textile supply chain's core, from the manufacturer to the supplier, from the fiber to the final product.
