From the collaboration between The Woolmark Company, Shima Seiki Italia, Vittorio Branchizio and 4 leading players in the yarn sector, including Tollegno 1900, a new capsule collection takes shape that makes Merino wool, combined with technical materials, the main interpreter

Four outfits that highlight the extreme versatility of Merino wool also to create high-performance garments suitable for a modern and urban, practical and multifunctional look: this is the project that saw Tollegno 1900 again alongside The Woolmark Company and Shima Seiki Italia. The concept of the capsule collection, in which the latest Shima Seiki “made in” knitwear technologies marry Woolmark certified Merino wool yarns, makes “Protection Wear” as inspiration, which Tollegno 1900 has declined in a hooded sweatshirt and reversible trousers.
