Working with Knitwear Lab – Part II


he challenge: practical garment, casual fit, easy to wear and easy to match. The result: OTW® Knitted trousers. 

This time, we cooperated with the Amsterdam based design and development studio KNITWEAR LAB, who used their design & knitting expertise to showcase Biella Yarn’s finest quality materials. A selection of yarns from the new collection book was implemented in a knitted trouser design with a relaxed fit.

To achieve something unique

Combining the chosen knitting techniques turned out to be a complicated step in the development process. The STOLL-weave-in® technique, along with plating and shaping, resulted in complex programming.

Discovering the technical solutions to use the weave-in technique and lay it into a plated single knit base brought stunning results. Therefore, both the programming and the knitting made the garment technically unique.

OTW® – the yarn of choice

OTW® Onyx Nm 48/2 yarn by Biella Yarn was used due to its exceptional features, such as high abrasion and pilling resistance, which synergises thoroughly the STOLL-weave-in® technique.

OTW® technology makes the yarn smooth and durable, and that allowed us to develop a long-lasting garment with a clean and smooth material surface, which retains the soft and natural touch of Merino wool.
