Washable Tweed; the clever part
All wool fibres have a series of microscopic scales which can feel coarse and when agitated through the washing process lock together resulting in a stiff and coarse handle, fibres are damaged and garments lose their shape.
Other brands are generally producing machine washable tweeds by subjecting the cloth to a consolidating chlorine gas. However, this gassing process, known as Chlor Hercosett, increases the likelihood of a coarse stiff cloth that can only be made using dull colour yarns.
Musto developed a plasticising process with a Scottish Mill which coats the fibres and the scales making them smooth and flexible, rather than coarse and stiff. This consolidates the cloth – the original handle, vibrant colour and shape are maintained when washed at 30°C, providing the extra benefit of being easy care with no sacrifice to the cloths premium feel.
