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.
Scabal is again due to present a new fabric: Temptation. This is the first time that a Super 200’s and vicuña have been woven to create a lightweight fabric with unparalleled comfort and softness. What is special about the fabric is its exceptional fineness, its natural character, its lightness, its softness, its beautiful drape and its crease-resistant properties.
The vicuña wool used by Scabal for its Temptation range comes from the most expensive part of the llama – i.e. the short downy hairs underneath the llama’s breast. These hairs have a diameter of less than 10 microns and are barely 20 to 35 mm in length. The original chestnut brown colour is carefully dyed in order to be able to obtain the grey and blue shades required.
The Super 200’s material is made from exclusive, Australian fine wool, which is characterised, among other things, by its fineness, its strength and its purity of colour. The name Super 200’s refers to the fineness of the wool and is the international designation given to woollen yarns finer than 13.5 microns. 1 micron is one thousandth of a millimetre. Fabric made from this wool quickly recovers its shape, has a luxurious aspect and feels extremely comfortable. Both woollen threads are spun by the best spinners in England and are woven in a weaving mill that is capable of handling such fine yarns.
Temptation is available in ten designs and traditional stripes with colour variations of grey and blue shades. This pearl among fabrics will undoubtedly be a success with the demanding customer, who loves discrete luxury.
