Jersey Knit (sometimes referred to as Mako-Knit) has been a huge success in the retail and hospitality industry in Europe and the North America for a number of years, largely displacing the old percale technology.
Knitted sheets with their soft feel and comfort were initially developed in Europe for bed-ridden patients. The positive patient feedback coupled with the ease of bed making made them the linen of choice in the hospital industry.
This success quickly spread to the hospitality and and evolved into high-end retail boutique outlets such as, Shabby Chic throughout America and Canada. The new fibre combinations and different densities soon made Jersey-Knit a household name.
Its permanent non-iron feature being a favourite benefit. The success of this linen was given a huge boost when Oprah Winfrey called the Jersey-knit sheets her ‘Discovery of the year’ in 2009.
Today Jersey-Knit has rapidly become the fabric of choice in Europe and North America for the Eco conscious and discerning shopper.
