Finest Quality Wool
Ktena Knitting Mills doesn’t just use any old wool — we use only the highest premium grades of Merino wool available, known as “superfine” which is specially selected and graded. Longer than other standard wool fibres — the extra length creates a smooth and silky knitted yarn. Our Merino wool yarns are soft to the touch and are prickle free against the skin, flame resistant and absorb body odour and moisture. After washing, not only does our Merino wool maintain its elasticity, it also increases its warmth value!
Why Merino Wool?
Merino wool is a remarkable fibre. A wonderful insulator, it will hold in your body heat to keep you warm. And, at the same time, wool has a unique ability to absorb up to three times its own weight in moisture, drawing it away from the skin without feeling damp. Wool does not compromise with quality. Only Merino wool can simultaneously keep you cozy and warm without feeling clammy or damp. Merino Wool is lightweight and ultrasoft, your guarantee for perfect comfort and better health.

Double Knitted Interlock (Side seam free)
The most stable superior of all fabrics, double knit or interlock fabric is constructed in a way where two layers of fabric are interlocked together – resembling a 2 ply construction, resulting in a fabric that is super soft, durable and long-lasting.
Our fine gauge double knit interlock fabric provides a much higher level of insulation than competitors single-knit garments due to our twin set of yarns knitted together resulting in air pockets formed between the two sets of yarns, trapping warm air between the fibers providing a superior level of insulation.
Our fabric is run-resistant, firmer and much more stable than all the Merino products on the market today. This is why our garments can be machine washed (no handwashing necessary) and can be tumble dried warm and will last and last.
Our interlock fabrics are knitted in tubular form by our machines programmed to knit individual body sizes. Thus, garments are side-seam free and hug the natural curves of the body.
Rib Pointelle (Side seam free)
Our unique body size tubular rib pointelle machinery is programmed to knit delicate diamond shape patterns within the fabric. Fine gauge, each garment is individually knitted with a waistband finish on the body and sleeve ends making hemming unnecessary.
Constructed in tubular form, garments are side-seam free and comfortably wrap around the contours of the body.
