The Lenzing Group, Lenzing, Austria cellulosic fibre manufacturer, signed a cooperation agreement with the Woolmark Company, Sydney, Australia, to partnership between the lyocell fiber TINCELÂ® and Merino wool so that the fiber duo introduces a new dimension to high-end textiles and active wear.
TENCEL is of botanic origin and offers moisture management properties while Merino wool is a protein fiber that is fine and glossy. The two fibers together have already recorded a large number of successes and the blend is popular among customers in Europe and the U.S.
The product developments will be backed up with in-house developments and co-operation with external trend experts. On a global level, the focus is on flat knits and circular knits for outerwear.
The long term goal between Lenzing and The Woolmark Company is to expand the high-end Merino wool market with TENCEL/Merino wool blends by 2020.
