Paris – Italian warp knitter Eurojersey has launched Sensitive Touch, a new extra fine gauge range of ‘next to skin’ silk like fabrics based on its Sensitive technology for stretch fabrics here at Premiere Vision. Sensitive is a unique system of patented, ‘made in Italy’ fabrics with a high Lycra content available until now in a range of hands and weights from 117gsm to 350gsm. The new Sensitive Touch, which is knitted on 36 gauge tricot machines, weighs in at only 89 gsm with 28% Lycra.
A spokesperson for Eurojersey told KnittingIndustry.com that although the company could see a bright future for its extra fine Sensitive Touch fabrics, it was anticipating a general downturn in business in the next six months due to the global economic recession and this has meant that the company has had to temporarily shelve its plans for investing in more fine gauge machinery. Eurojersey has recently installed six new 36 gauge (needles per inch) two bar Karl Mayer machines fitted with carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP)needle bar and guide bars.
