Developed to identify fabrics with key performance benefits based on wool's natural inherent properties and innovations in processing and manufacture, the Woolscience brand will be used to market a range of products to the military, industrial, medical, workwear, bedding and equestrian end-user markets.
Performance will include vapour management comfort technology for apparel, bedding, equestrian and transport; Superwash and flame resist properties for transport; well-being and protection for apparel and bedding; and endurance and performance for apparel and equestrian end-uses.
Melba Industries Pty Ltd has been appointed as Woolmark's first Woolscience licensed commercial partner in the manufacturing of Woolscience fabrics in Australia.
