DistinxionSuper 170's Wool
Distinxion is, as its name implies, a distinctly daring range of fabrics, where the visual and tactile performance of individual fabrics is heightened by the presence of silk. The level of brilliance that spinners and weavers can achieve is plain to see in the aptly named Distinxion collection.
The subtle, translucent lustre of wool embodies luxury, while the addition of silk yarn lends a special sheen. The blend offers the opportunity to combine the intrinsic qualities of both fibres, exploiting their differences to enhance performance.
Hopsacks and twills, in wool and silks, give pride of place to radiance. The combination of fibres, the fine two-ply yarn and the dense weave combine to give free rein to the versatility and a striking lustrous finish. The unique pure wool line offers more subdued creations, fitting the bill for a suit ideal for a less formal setting, but still with a decidedly aesthetic value.
The list would be incomplete without the 100% wool barathea, which remains a feature of this collection.
The DISTINXION collection is magical, turning a strand of silk into a ray of light, a worsted thread into a quarter moon, and a length of fabric into the perfect suit.
