Schoeller Spinning Wins Vorarlberg Innovation Award

Austria-based spinner and dyer Schoeller GmbH & Co. KG's Spinning Group has received the 2012 Vorarlberg Innovation Award for its sustainable EXP 3.0 wool finishing process.

Unlike traditional wool finishing methods, Schoeller's process does not require the use of chlorine; and it also uses less water, according to the company. In addition, the finish allows wool garments to be fully machine washed, and does not affect a garment's positive wearing properties, Schoeller reports. The process has been certified to the bluesign® standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard.
