Since its beginnings CURLING has been concerned with noble material because it is at the heart of the creation process.
We first choose the materials according to different criteria: property, touch, design and weaving.
These will be allocated subsequently 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 to 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, the flax fiber is quite shiny, smooth and somewhat irregular in thickness. Extremely strong, she is naturally brown. Treated, it takes on subtle and powerful colors. Even if it creases easily, this material has kept its charm and nobility.

Property:

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

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

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

Property:

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

WOOL

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

Property:

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

There are different qualities of wool:
Merino wool
This very high quality wool, which owes its name to purebred merino sheep is valued for its smoothness and softness on the skin. Also chosen for its resistance, it is used for the manufacture of sweaters.
The Lambswool
Produced from the first shearing of a seven-month-old lamb, the lambswool is a wool known for its virtues of thermal insulation. Supple, particularly soft and easily wrinkle-free, its many qualities have seduced CURLING , which uses it for the manufacture of its sweaters.
La Laine Super 100 -120 -140
These names correspond to the fineness of the pure wool yarn used for making costumes or of 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 falling.

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

Property:

  • scarcity of 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 tree pulp.

Property:

  • smooth and shiny but a special finish can make it matt
  • good wear resistance
  • easy to maintain
  • gives the fabric a drop of

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

Property:

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