Since its beginnings CURLING has been concerned with the noble material because it is at the heart of the creative process.
We first choose the materials according to different criteria: property, touch, design and weaving.
These will later be allocated to a model.


COTTON
Cotton is a silky down provided by the pod or fruit of a shrub, the cotton plant. Cotton fiber comes in the form of a firm 1-7 cm long, the main component of which is cellulose.

Property:

  • flexibility
  • good elasticity
  • good resistance to boiling water
  • pleasant touch
  • easy maintenance


FLAX
Extracted from the stem of the flax plant, flax fiber is quite shiny, smooth and slightly irregular in thickness. Extremely strong, it is naturally brown. Treated, it takes on subtle and powerful colours. Even if it wrinkles easily, this material has retained its charm and nobility.

Property:

  • great resistance
  • low elasticity
  • low thermal power (light and natural, linen is pleasant to wear in summer.)
  • pleasant touch

SILK
The first use of silk dates back more than 3000 years in China.

It is a caterpillar secretion, the most common of which is the silkworm, caterpillar of the Bombyx of the mulberry,which will be woven to form the silk thread.

Property:

  • very soft and pleasant to the touch
  • shiny fiber
  • great thermal power (keep you warm in winter and light in summer)
  • lightness while having weight
  • vividness of colors

WOOL

Wool is the product of the fleece of sheep, the surface of the fiber called the cuticle shows scales under the microscope which explain the feltability of wool.

Property:

  • great flexibility
  • very good resistance to use
  • good thermal protection
  • good elasticity

There are different qualities of wool:
Merino wool
This very high quality wool, which owes its purebred merino sheep is appreciated for its finesse and softness on the skin. Also chosen for its resistance, it is used for the manufacture of sweaters.
Lambswool
Derived from the first shearing of a seven-month-old lamb, lambswool is a wool known for its virtues of thermal insulation. Supple, particularly soft and easily wrinkle-free, its many qualities won over CURLING, which uses it to make its sweaters.
Super 100 -120 -140 Wool
These designations correspond to the fineness of the pure wool yarn used for making costumes or tailors CURLING. "Super 100" means that one kilo of wool is used to spin 100 km of yarn. Warm in winter, cool in summer, it is so light that you can wear it ten months a year. It retains its legendary qualities of solidity and drape.

KASHMIR
It all starts with the shearing of a particular goat that lived in Kashmir, a province of India During the winter, this goat protects itself against the cold thanks to its thick wool reinforced by a thin layer of down. The latter is the basis for making cashmere.

Property:

  • rarity of the material
  • soft to the touch
  • good thermal protection

VISCOSE
First called "artificial silk", then "rayon" in 1924, viscose was created to meet the demand for fabrics similar to silk. The first versions were made with the pulp of trees.

Property:

  • smooth and shiny but a special finish can make it matte
  • good wear resistance
  • easy maintenance
  • Gives drape to the fabric

MODAL
Modal is a fiber made from cellulose. It is frequently referred to as improved viscose. Modal has similar properties to cotton.

Property:

  • good skin tolerance
  • does not warp
  • easy to maintain
  • soft to the touch
