Scabal develops its special fabrics by selecting the rarest and most luxurious fibers, as for example gold, diamond fragments, Super 250’S or Vicuña. These very high quality-fabrics are brought out in limited editions, in between seasons.
Twenty-five years ago, Scabal launched the world's first cloth finer than Super 100's and, since then, it has pursued an unceasing quest for the finest wools in the world. In 2000, Scabal created a Super 200's quality, called Exceptional. Now, after five more years of tireless research, Scabal has reached the pinnacle in ultrafine Australian wools and is proud to announce the arrival of a cloth worthy of the name, SUMMIT.
It is so fine to the touch that Scabal's own technicians immediately called it Super 250's . SUMMIT is an ultra-ultrafine fibre in the lower 12 micron range, and is processed in its purest form without corrupting it with other luxury fibres. It is extremely consistent along its length, has high strength, incomparable lustre and a natural comfort which is due to the fibres' wave-like crimps.
A wool this fine deserves nothing but the finest treatment, and Scabal has obliged. The wool is meticulously processed using artisan methods in Scabal’s own design and weaving department in Huddersfield, England. From cleaning through spinning and weaving to final finishing, no effort is spared.
This extraordinarily fine Super 250's fabric has intentionally been spun to a medium count of two nineties (2/90). This results in a medium all-round weight of 280g/m and gives the ultrafine wool a full, rich, flowing handle . Traditional processing follows SUMMIT to the very end, with a special paper pressing for comfort, drape and easy tailoring. SUMMIT is 100% wool with a handle and feel to rival cashmere and an elegant, natural drape that truly does make it the ultimate choice for sophisticated tailoring .
