A rich, soft Irish lilt translates into home
October 13, 2003,
Traditional knit styles, typically found in Irish sweaters, have been translated into soft, luxurious knitted fabrics for curtains, home textiles accessories and even upholstery.
The three styles have been tested for abrasion resistance, colorfastness, seam slippage, breaking strength and resistance to pilling. In the Wyzenbeek abrasion test, for example, the fabrics rested for 10,000 double rubs, more than 50,000 double rubs and 5,000 double rubs respectively. Complete test results are available from the company.
