Reduce textile waste and increase garment performance

Wool Seamless Technology

Acting like a second skin, seamless Merino wool apparel encourages greater structure diversity and comfort along with enhanced protection.

Whole-garment technology eliminates the need for cut-and-sew, meaning you only use the amount of fabric required to construct a garment.

Freedom to move

High levels of stretch and recovery for comfort during intense movements, allowing the garments to move with you yet return to its original shape.

An active fibre, wool reacts to changes in the body's temperature helping keep you warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot.

How it works

Wool Seamless Technology

Traditionally, wool base-layer apparel was made by cut and sew production with limited possibilities for variety. Now, however, circular and flat-knitting technologies are being employed to manufacture not only next-to-skin base-layers, but an extensive range of mid- and outer-layer garments too in a seamless construction.

New wool and wool-rich yarns are being developed specifically for this type of seamless knitting, with enhanced yarn strength through core or wrap-spun spinning technologies. 

What’s so unique about seamless apparel is that it allows for a combination of different patterns and knit stitches in different colours on the one piece of fabric. By engineering a garment to have features such as compression and breathability points on a single surface, it encourages greater structure diversity and comfort along with enhanced protection.

Woolmark partners using seamless garment technology

Seamless garment technology is the ultimate in knitting technology, with Karl Mayer, Santoni, Shima Seiki and Stoll the four major players.

Santoni and Südwolle

The Woolmark Company partnered with Santoni and Südwolle to create a 12-piece yoga collection - designed by innovative knitwear designer studio Studio Eva x Carola - using Santoni’s state-of-the-art circular seamless knitting machines and 15.5 micron Merino wool yarn from the Südwolle Group. The collection includes leggings, crop tops and bras, racer-back tank top and a T-shirt, all designed with performance in mind.
