  • It is made of threads, the elastic loops of which easily change shape, so knitwear does not wrinkle.
  • The structure of knitwear resembles a thick mesh, thanks to which it “breathes”, passing air and excess moisture; does not soar in the heat, but warms in the cold.
  • Things from this material stretch well, but at the same time they do not lose their shape.
  • Knitted fabric is easy to care for, a delicate wash is enough, and even ironing is not necessary.
