Polartec launches Power Wool collection for comfort and durability

Polartec, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions, has launched Polartec Power Wool, the new fabric collection designed to optimize the natural performance of wool with synthetic fibres in patented, plated bi-component knit constructions for superior comfort.

The Polartec Power Wool launch partners include 66º North, Athleta, Beretta, Brooks-Range, Cabela’s, Crazy Idea, Eider, Gornik, Ibex, Kitsbow, Mammut, Millet, Mission Workshop, Mountain Force, QOR, Roeckl, Ternua, Teton Bros, Trangoworld, Under Armour and Westcomb.

Polartec products range from advanced lightweight wicking fabric, to insulation and weather protection textiles.

Comfort and durability

Unlike other wool/synthetic blends on the market, Polartec Power Wool is a highly engineered plated construction, which, according to the manufacturer, precisely places wool and synthetic yarns, in order to achieve better performance, creating a layering system within a single textile.

Highly breathable Polartec Power Wool fabrics optimally place naturally wicking, odour resistant, temperature-regulating high quality merino wool next to skin with hydrophobic synthetic fibres on the outside for shape retention, durability, and improved dry-times.

The resulting products are said to manage the often-divergent demands of many environments, which could be hot or cold, wet or dry, more reliably – for superior comfort and durability.

Available in multiple styles

Polartec Power Wool fabrics are currently available in multiple styles, including primary next-to-skin, form-fitting stretch, and patented grid construction, based on Polartec’s original synthetic grid fleece technology, Polartec Power Dry High Efficiency, which is now called Polartec Power Grid.

The launch of Polartec Power Wool follows the introduction of Polartec’s latest innovations, Polartec Alpha, the first-ever breathable puffy insulation, and Polartec NeoShell.
