Polartec Power Air

Product description

Black Polartec PowerAir is Polartec's latest mid-warmth fabric innovation; an insulating fabric that has been engineered to reduce fibre shedding by encapsulating the insulating lofted fibres within the knitting process. While the motivation to create this fabric was a more environmentally sound material, the result is a unique fabric with great design appeal.  The face of the fabric is smooth, making it ideal for layering, while the back side features the insulating pockets that can hold your heat and breath at the same time.  

Some of the colours are noted as Seconds.  So far we haven't noticed major flaws but we have marked the fabrics down nonetheless.

Specs and Features

Black Seconds, Black, Blue Wing Teal, Bronze Seconds, Curry Seconds, Malbec, Neon Pink Seconds and Heather Charcoal: 60" wide, 10.5 oz/sqyd | 356 gsm, 4-way stretch:  30% side-to-side   20% lengthwise

**NOTE:  Black Seconds has one "fringy" selvedge.  We have not found any obvious flaws on the other colourways marked as seconds.

Sedona Sage:  61" wide, 10.5 oz/sqyd | 356 gsm, 4-way stretch: 50% side-to-side  35% lengthwise

Cream: 66 inches wide, 7.9 oz/sqyd | 268 gsm, 4-way stretch: 30% side-to-side  20% lengthwise

Style 4512 (Black Seconds) 70" wide, 5.6 oz/sqyd | 190 gsm, 4-way stretch:  25% side-to-side  20% lengthwise.  Different than other styles of Power Air.  This style is a knit with an I-Beam structure to improve stability, increase warmth, and reduce weight.  We find that it is prone to catching and picking but it does make wonderfully warm sweaters! There are occasional tonal stipes as well.  We think it could best be used to line a shell style jacket where this issues won't make a large difference.
