The hundred-year-old process and technology used to create Loopwheel fabric is slow by design. Its cylindrical machines require one hour to produce a meter of fabric, that’s enough to make 6-7 sweatshirts in one single day. For LEEN®, the process—and the finished product (fluffy inside, dry-hand outside) which ages wonderfully over time—is well worth the wait.
Thanks to the gentle pace of the knitting mechanism, the yarn is never pulled or strained, resulting in fabric that’s airy, soft, and incredibly durable—qualities that can’t be achieved to such levels with high-speed knitting machines.
