Global worsted yarn producer Südwolle Group has announced the launch of their latest Suedwebs Innovation Hub Story, a collaboration with innovative brand and manufacturer Pepper Vally that aims to transform denim into a sustainable and inclusive fashion statement made from wool. 

 The project, titled “Redefining wool denim: From Classic to Sustainable,” sets a new standard for eco-friendliness and inclusivity.  

 Together, Pepper Vally and Südwolle Group focused on pioneering fabric manufacturing methods that combine natural elements and innovative techniques to create not just clothing, but a story of compassion for people and the planet.  

 A Suedwebs Innovation Hub Story 

In its quest to redefine denim, the team turned away from traditional weaving methods. Instead, the team decided to knit the denim. The result is a fabric that is lighter, more elastic, and remarkably durable while minimizing its environmental impact. 

These yarns fuse natural beauty with practical benefits: 

  • Seymour Nm 1/48: A blend of merino wool and TENCEL®, chosen for its temperature regulating properties, light weight and elegant drape. 
  • Caprera Nm 1/60: A blend of merino wool and COOLMAX® selected for its durability, temperature regulation and water resistance. 

The interplay of specialty yarns, innovative fabric structures and distinctive design concepts yields a denim collection that challenges conventional notions of jeans. The garments are stylish, high performance and environmentally friendly. When worn, there is a sense of both aesthetic and comfort.
