We discovered something for the boys. It is a crew neck sweater made with double knit construction. What makes it different is the outside of the sweater. It is made of thermo-sensitive yarn that makes it drastically change colour when exposed to cold. The inside is made of pure wool.
Stone Island is the company behind the crew neck sweater. Established in 1982 in Ravarino, in the Modena area, by Massimo Osti, Stone island became a brand built on their research into fibres and textiles. Applying their findings to innovative design, the brand is known for scrutinising and investigating the transformation and enhancement of fibres and fabrics. They have discovered new materials and production techniques that have never previously been used in the clothing industry.
Stone Island’s strength lies in its unique capacity to work on the finished garment, via continuous experimentation with dyes and treatments created in the Sportswear Company’s colour laboratory. A department capable of combining advanced technology, experience and human capacity, that over the years has developed more than 60,000 different dye recipes.
