MERINO DUAL CLOTH - ORIGINAL (MDC-O)
Our original Merino Dual Cloth starts on a circular knitting machine, using three separate yarns to create two distinct layers. The first yarn, making up the face layer of the fabric, is 100% fine merino wool from Sudewolle in Germany, made for high-performance stretch and recovery, also machine washable. There is not another mill in the world able to spin merino yarns to this degree of quality and function.
The second yarn, making up the reverse layer of fabric, is a cotton/poly blend produced by Cap Yarns in North Carolina. This provides interior comfort and complements the face yarn's stretch and recovery capabilities.
The third is a Lycra yarn that interlocks between stitches formed on the face and reverse layers. Used for stability and durability of the two main layers, Spandex allows for the wool and cotton to coexist without sacrificing performance of either layer.
This exclusive combination of yarn and method of knitting is built for versatility in casual and active wear. With its high points of stretch and recovery, effortless care, and a clean aesthetic, the Merino Dual Cloth is an unequaled fabric no doubt worthy of resurrection.
MERINO DUAL CLOTH - LIGHT (MDC-L)
Our light weight Merino Dual Cloth uses a double plated jersey method to create its double cloth constrcution. The first yarn, making up the face layer of the fabric, is the same yarn as the original, 100% fine merino from Suedwolle.
The second yarn, making up the reverse layer of fabric, is a 50/50 cotton/modal blend produced in Turkey. This provides interior comfort and performance to an already inherently effective yarn, merino, on the face.
Another exclusive combination of yarn and historically significant method of knitting is built for versatility in casual and active wear. This was the original method George Munsing used to create his wool/silk union suits where the wool yarn is pushed to the face and silk was pushed to the back.
