Milan-headquartered Thermore has announced the debut of the most dynamic stretch insulation in its five decades of innovation – Freedom.

Made from 50% post-consumer recycled polyester, the unique insulation offers ground-breaking stretch while providing warmth across a multitude of uses including alpine sports, running, golf, fishing and hunting, cycling and a host of other active pursuits.

Dynamometer testing shows that the insulation – which comes in four levels of warmth, ranging from 60-150 grams per square metre – has incredible elasticity and recovers to100% of its pre-stretch size time after time.

The ability to provide warmth while also allowing for a dynamic range of motion is what impels performance brands to utilise Thermore in their product lines.

The new Freedom insulation adds a higher level of comfort and functionality than was previously attainable in the stretch category, reaffirming Thermore’s place in the textile industry as a true innovator deeply rooted in performance and sustainability.

GRS-certified Freedom insulation is machine washable, can be dry cleaned and is easy-care for the consumer and very design friendly for product developers with its high resistance to fibre migration.

Its introduction represents another step forward in Thermore’s ongoing dedication to a sustainable product range, having pioneered the use of recycled fibres in the 1980’s and further developed the technology ever since.
