Neulana Elite is an innovative new fabric made from 100 per cent Merino wool and possesses, in addition to Merino wool’s inherent natural properties, the softness of cashmere and the subtle lustre of silk. This is luxury fabric for men’s and ladies suits, shirts and accessories.
Neulana Elite fabrics are made from a special Merino wool fibre known as Optim Fine. This fibre has been specially processed in an Optim machine that is able to stretch the wool fibre by about 25% then fix it in that configuration. The resulting fibres are very smooth (feels like cashmere) and straight (looks like silk).The fibre can easily be blended with cashmere and silk as well as with normal fine Merino wool. It is ideal for premium fine worsted wool suiting and jacketing fabrics, but works equally well in shawl fabrics, shirtings, scarves and fine jersey knitted fabrics where the increased fibre length benefits the knitting process.
