SwissCotton Silver from Hermann Bler

 

Hermann Bühler AG, the specialized spinning mill for exclusive cotton yarns and blends, is introducing SwissCotton Silver, a 100 % natural yarn with exciting functional characteristics.

SwissCotton Silver is a blend of 90 – 95 % high-quality cotton and X-Static, a Polyamide fiber coated with pure silver. The X-Static silver fiber delivers excellent antimicrobial, anti-odor, antistatic and therapeutic characteristics. In addition, X-Static’s conductive properties help regulate temperature: It’s warm in winter and cool in summer.

Thanks to these characteristics, which are maintained even after numerous washings, X-Static is perfectly suited for sports and everyday life. Because silver is a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent, it’s also used in medical applications. Wound-care, the treatment of neuro-dermatitis and athlete’s foot are examples of a wide range of possible applications.

As a natural product, pure silver is perfectly safe for people. There is no indication of allergies or any adverse reactions. Leading institutions around the world have confirmed the excellent characteristics of X-Static.
