Producing just one metre of cloth per hour, the loopwheel knitting machine is a true beacon of the analog era. Invented by Italian Guiseppe Negra in 1926, the loopwheeler process is slow and steady. With each rotation layer upon layer of cotton is gradually built up. The result is an immensely soft and durable cotton that remains pristine wear after wear.
This season Japanese brand’s Toujours and Chimala have used loopwheeler cotton in basic pieces such as sweatshirts, turtleneck’s and cardigans giving luxury to the everyday.
