“The star of our new collection is without doubt “Sunrise”,“ 50 per cent Super 200’s wool and 50 per cent silk, it is a luxury gentlemen’s suiting cloth at the very top end of the market – with a soft touch, light feel and beautiful shine”.
“Sunrise” is a cloth produced in Scabal’s own weaving plant in Huddersfield (England). Spinning and weaving this delicate wool and silk composition - a marriage made in heaven - is not an easy task as it is very labour-intensive. However, the result is definitely worth it: “Sunrise” is one of the most remarkable fabric for suits developed in recent years.”
“Sunrise” is an exceptionally soft fabric weighing 220 grams. The fine micron - 1 micron is one thousandth of a millimetre - of the combed worsted yarns is not the only measure of its quality. The crimp and length of wool fibres as well as the general style are just as important to make a fine quality cloth.”
Sunrise offers a high-colour palette of 28 designs for top-end suiting, including the light greys and beiges particularly appreciated in Middle East and Asian markets. A beautiful top decoration that makes Sunrise a very soft, fine-looking and colourful cloth. As from early 2008, Sunrise is available in the 65 countries in which Scabal has a presence.
