Los Angeles, CA –To address the need for innovative temperature regulating fabrics in the activewear market, Asher Fabric Concepts, a Los Angeles-based supplier of domestic knit fabrics for the contemporary fashion, activewear and intimate apparel markets, is introducing a new collection of knits suitably named, Cool Sport.

This range of fabrics will be spun on Asher Fabric Concepts’ new Santoni knitting machines, which creates micro-gauge knits for pure smoothness and compression. These high-tech machines are housed in Asher Fabric Concepts’ new manufacturing facility in nearby Vernon, CA.

A featured performance fabric in the Cool Sport collection is called Woven Knit (W.K.).

“W.K. is unique in its ability to mold to the skin without the heaviness of most fabrics,” said Asher Shalom, President, Asher Fabric Concepts. “The innovation is in the machine’s ability to utilize air pressure as opposed to sinkers in the way of the past. Using air creates a smooth aesthetic that is un-paralleled in the domestic textile world.”

W.K. is made with Breeze by Nilit®, a nylon cooling yarn ideal for the performance active, swimwear, shapewear and dress markets, with the ability to add topical antimicrobial and wicking finishes. W.K. is available in a variety of weights ranging from 8oz to 11.5oz. More fabrics in the Cool Sport collection will be announced soon.
