IN THE STUDIO / 3D DESIGN knitting technology, these renderings had to be converted into code their machines could read. Every stitch had to be accounted for electronically, allowing the garments to come off the machine in one piece — so cool!" e Woolmark Company's educa- tion platform, e Woolmark Learning Centre, offers a seamless knitting tutorial (Santoni Technology course) in collab- oration with design team Studio Eva x Carola. e course assists students in selecting the appropriate technology and yarn to create seamless garments employing Merino wool. "Digital body mapping with Santoni's seamless tech- nology allows us the ability to produce garments as a complete package of func- tionality, form and comfort all while highlighting wool's natural benefits and versatility," noted Julie Davies, general manager for processing, innovation and education extension for Woolmark. e technology allows for going from yarn to garment, creating apparel almost free of seams and with minimal waste. e process is valuable for next-to- skin intimate apparel, athleisure and highly technical performance and com- pression garments for sport or medical applications. Functional activewear firm Studio Eva x Carola developed a 12- piece collection (Woolmark x Santoni x Südwolle) including leggings, crop tops and a racer-back tank top. e collection employs a superfine 15.5 micron Merino wool yarn from the Südwolle Group for so next-to-skin comfort and was constructed using seamless technology circular knitting machines from Santoni Shanghai, which are traditionally used to man- ufacture undergarments. "Unlike the traditional cut and sew approach, seamless technology provides de- signers with an ever-increasing array of opportunities to create beautifully designed products, fully integrating fashion and function to satisfy a variety of end-users," said Davies. n 24 • Textile Insight ~ Spring 2023 textileinsight.com Yoga Looks from Studio Eva x Carola.
