Polartec Launches Polartec® Power Wool™ Fabrics

Lawrence, Mass.-based Polartec has introduced the Polartec® Power Wool collection of fabrics. The fabric features man-made fibers with wool in a plated bicomponent knit structure, which effectively creates a layering system. According to Polartec, the fabrics offer the wicking, odor resistance, temperature-regulating properties of wool with the shape retention, durability and improved drying times of the man-made fiber in such a way that the final performance is much greater than the sum of the parts.

Partner brands participating in the Power Wool launch include 66° North, Athleta, Beretta, Brooks-Range, Cabela’s, Crazy Idea, Eider, Gornik, Ibex, Kitsbow, Mammut, Millet, Mission Workshop, Mountain Force, QOR, Roeckl, Ternua, Teton Bros., Trangoworld, Under Armour and Westcomb.
