Italy: San­toni, Nilit join hands for a ‘Cool’ seam­less ath­let­icwear

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

San­toni, the Italian knit­ting ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­turer, has joined forces with the Is­rael-based ny­lon fi­bre spe­cial­ist, Nilit, for an en­tire new high-per­for­mance ath­let­icwear col­lec­tion. The col­lec­tion has incorporated the seam­less tech­nol­ogy pro­vided by San­toni and will be first dis­played at the Out­door Re­tailer event in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Un­der the col­lab­o­ra­tion, the ath­let­icwear col­lec­tion has been man­u­fac­tured with the pro­cess­ing of Nilit’s Ny­lon 6.6 yarns and the use of San­toni’s patented fine gauge (40G) knit­ting ma­chine SM8/ TOP2V. The er­ror-free knit­ting tech­niques re­sult in build­ing a com­pres­sive force on the sur­faces of the gar­ment which fur­ther helps in pro­vid­ing the gar­ment with a bet­ter grip on the body.

San­toni’s SM8/ TOP2V ma­chine also en­ables the pre­cise location of ther­mal pock­ets in the gar­ment that reg­u­late the body heat us­ing air cir­cu­la­tion through in­let and out­let ports. Work­ing as a cool­ing sen­sa­tion, the col­lec­tion also fea­tures Nilit’s Sen­sil Breeze tech­nol­ogy which is said to bring the body tem­per­a­ture down through its proven pa­ram­e­ters.

Fur­ther­more, the ath­let­icwear col­lec­tion aims to pro­vide ‘Green’ so­lu­tions in the mar­ket. Since San­toni’s SM8/ TOP2 V knit­ting ma­chine is cer­ti­fied with the ‘Green La­bel’, it of­fers 30 per cent less carbon emis­sion foot­print than its ear­lier mod­els.

San­toni and Nilit, in a joint dec­la­ra­tion, ex­plained,

“The range of ath­letic de­signs in the San­toni/ Nilit cap­sule col­lec­tion shows the ver­sa­til­ity of both the ma­chin­ery and the yarns. By work­ing to­gether, San­toni and Nilit have cre­ated spe­cial ap­parel prod­ucts that meet the needs of the out­door con­sumer with fash­ion­able, light­weight, beau­ti­ful­ly­con­structed gar­ments that cool, sup­port, and en­hance com­fort and ap­pear­ance.”
