K115 werkfabric


K115 is an advanced polyester knit fabric developed specifically to excel in work applications where snagging and abrasion are a constant. Scoring 4.5 / 5 in anti-pick tests, K115 incorporates 30+ UPF sun protection, anti-microbial treatment and is moister-wicking and very quick to dry. 
High-end athletic brands have been making performance (moisture management, sun protection, etc.) fabric for a while. Their performance in on the job-site as been compelling, until they meet the first rough-sawn timber, slash pile or wire rope. Quick to snag and pull, they couldn't be kept looking clean and presentable. Over a year in development, by using high-end polyester yarns and tuning the knitting process for stretch rather than using elastic yarn we were not only able to achieve exceptional snag resistance but also improve the moisture management performance of the fabric. We believe the resulting K115 to be the most advanced knit werkfabric available in the world today.
