ITEC Innovation Ltd has been appointed to handle all global sales for Wool Comfort and Wool Handle Meter. ITEC Innovation is based in the UK and has the exclusive distribution rights for the Laserscan, Almeter and SiroFAST technologies. It specialises in supplying and installing textile measuring equipment and also offers a complete range of spares and service.


A company spokesperson said that after five years of comprehensive consumer wearer trials, involving some 26,000 individual assessments and parallel development of a new measuring system, the CRC for Sheep Industry Innovation has developed two instruments that accurately predict next-to-skin comfort and can calibrate a garment’s handle to the specific requirements of a brand and its target consumer.


Used in concert these instruments empower retailers like never before, removing the guess work from product specification and increasing transparency across the supply chain.


Key Features of the Wool Comfort and Wool Handle Meter include high-speed and low cost – each sample can be tested within 5 minutes; non-destructive to the samples – either fabric or garments can be tested without any damage; user-friendly – the sample is simply loaded for automated testing. The software user interface is simple and straightforward.

This technology offers high precision resulting in excellent repeatability over time and is of great benefit to retailers and manufacturers of next-to-skin products. It is ideal for developing new generation products and removes the guess work out of the supply chain
