Woolmark, Malwa Debut Indigo Wool

The Woolmark Co., Australia, and the Malwa Group, India, have developed Indigo Wool, a line of indigo warp-dyed wool products that have home laundering characteristics. The production method used simultaneously takes thousands of yarn ends and dyes them using a continuous warp-dyeing system. The dyed yarns are woven using methods specially adapted to process the softer wool yarns.

Targeted to high-end casualwear markets, the products have a soft hand and excellent fit, drape and crease recovery; are machine washable; and retain their shape and appearance after laundering, according to the companies.

Malwa also has been working with TS Jeans Care, England, to develop a range of finishing techniques that will enhance the aesthetics and effects of wool and indigo dye appearances in finished garments.
