New Spatially Constructed Wool Technology Changes the Game in Concealment Apparel
Pagosa Springs, CO (Dec 10, 2015) — VOORMI®, an innovator of domestically sourced Precision Blended Wool, is getting really precise… this time with color. The Colorado-based performance wool maker is proud to unveil PHASE-Sc™ Technology, a new textile technology with the ability to precisely place colored yarns in a biomimicry pattern for application in performance concealment apparel.
VOORMI’s wool based PHASE-Sc™ Technology allows for a new dimension of color to be incorporated into apparel down to the yarn level. PHASE-Sc™ Technology’s precision placement of colored yarn builds a concealment pattern — one thread at a time — throughout the fabric (as opposed to surfaced applied print patterns) and results in a softer, quieter concealment garment with less light reflectivity. VOORMI’s PHASE-Sc™ Technology is a color-blend technology that works in concert with the company’s other fabric technologies that elevate the wool’s durability, odor-resistance, weather resistance, and moisture wicking properties.
Well known for the company’s innovations in precision blended wool for mountain lifestyle and outdoor pursuits, expansion into concealment apparel is a natural next step for VOORMI. “VOORMI has always been about making the best clothing for small town mountain lifestyles,” said VOORMI Chief Marketing Officer Timm Smith, “With the introduction of PHASE-Sc, we now have the perfect kit when elk hunting season roles around. For us, this is a very natural fit.”
