Ktena Ladies' Range Specifications

Ktena's ladies' range includes our everyday Thermo Fleece® garments and sports style Merino Skins® garments in design styles including sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve tops and long john and trunks and are made in various fabric / knit type constructions.

Double Knitted Interlock (Side seam free)

The most stable of all fabrics, this resists warping and retains its shape wash after wash. 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 machinery is programmed to knit specific patterns within this fabric. 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.

Shiny Jersey

Single knitted with fine pure merino wool, this is a lightweight super soft luxurious fabric. After the complex and detailed finishing all of our other fabrics undergo, our shiny jersey fabric undergoes a further process known as decatising – where the fabric is placed in high-temperature copper tubing and is placed under extremely high temperature for an extended period – resulting in the fabric being transformed to having a unique sheen. The fabric becomes shiny and has a silky feel and appearance. This fabric is particularly popular in the high end of the market worldwide.

Finest Quality Wool

Ktena Knitting Mills doesn’t just use any old wool – we use one of the highest grades of Merino Wool 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, 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!
