AWI or Australian Wool Innovation is the marketing body behind Australian merino wool and the Merino Perform™ benchmark standards. Being that they are the global authority on merino wool, LincSpun is delighted to meeting and exceeding their strict test criteria with a number of our high-tech sports fabrics.
As well as improving the trading environment across the supply chain, AWI develops opportunities using strategic fiber marketing, creating partnerships with fiber technology developers such as LincSpun to help push advances happening within the industry.
Over 15 LincSpun fabrics meet the Merino Perform™ sports fabric test requirements set by AWI. This gives the wearer of any garment created from it the highest level of comfort and performance in all climates and environments during any kind of fitness activity.
- Moisture management
- Shape retention
- Temperature regulation
- Odor control
- Easy care
These standards and fabrics like LincSpuns make for easy, no-fuss selection for designers and manufacturers to confidently source top quality performance, technologically advanced natural fiber fabrics.
Spinning yarn using two continuous filaments with a staple fiber base is how the LincSpun technology can produce fabrics with incredible stability which makes for more durable, abrasion resistant finished products. LincSpun fabrics have significantly increased tensile strength allowing for seamless knitting of staple fibers.
Fabrics created in this way have great colour adherence with clear pattern definition and minimal colour merging. Merino fabrics have amazing and seemingly endless advantages, lending its properties to all areas of industry, high fashion to mass transport seating, base layers to yoga pants, its all covered.
Merino wool was the driving force behind LincSpuns innovations when the original TRINOMAX® was created, but to meet demand for high performance Cotton and Cellulose fabric, LincSpun is now producing TRITENCEL® and TRICOTTON® yarns.
The technology is not limited to just these fibers either new yarns are being created for client specific needs all the time and new recipes are developed.
Sustainability as well as price point drive the diversification of LincSpuns developments along with realizing almost any fabric application can benefit from our patented technology.
All innovations at LincSpun undergo rigorous testing, the technology is in the spinning itself and provides many fabric performance attributes.
Lenzing TENCEL® paired with LincSpun Technology takes eco-friendly fibers to the next level, producing dramatic results.
A Martindale test carried out at Lenzing in 2012 on a LincSpun 77% TENCEL® fabric recorded an astounding 100, 000 rubs before holes occurred. Comparatively fabrics tested along side LincSpun produced results of only 5000-7000 rubs before the fabric was destroyed. The technology in the spinning allows for incredible strength throughout the fabric with the TENCEL® making it soft and luxurious with superior hand feel and drape.
LincSpun fabrics have produced dramatic results across all categories of testing, having amazing pill resistance, burst strength and stability with virtually no measurable spirality.

Lincspun has completed intensive research and development with like minded Tencel® producer Lenzing, to create a range of yarns that can be used across many different industries.
This collaboration with Lenzing has lead to the production of numerous innovations including Tri-Tencel 42, a fabric merging all the benefits of the LincSpun technology with the outstanding natural and sustainable attributes of Tencel® to meet the market need for eco- friendly fibers and fabric that can perform.
Tencel® itself is manufactured from nature in one of the most eco-friendly fiber production processes, the award winning closed loop production cycle with product plant emissions that are significantly lower than those of man made fibers.
Tencel® comes from nature and even as a finished product as a fabric, is extremely bio degradable. Tencel® or, Lyocell is considered an eco-textile with huge advantages, it performs like cotton and can be added to many different fibers which is what we like most.
It supply’s us with a range of opportunities for different blends and recipes making for various outcomes.
Sustainable development seeks to meet the needs and aspirations of the present without compromising those of the future
Unlocking the potential of different combinations of fiber is what LincSpun is all about, and company’s across the globe are collaborating and reaping the benefits of the unique merging of materials LinSpuns innovations provide. Our revolutionary spinning developments are leading yarn and textile industry, particularly in the competitive performance apparel sector.
LincSpun and its developments are the intersection of technology and biology, taking what nature has produced and enhancing its capabilities.
The technology allows for infinite yarn and fabric types by starting the design process at the fiber level and working right through to a completed fabric or garment.
Independent testing has shown that LincSpuns developments are some of the most durable, versatile, high performance yarns in todays competitive market, it’s unrivalled durability makes for incredible longevity.
