Brand showcase: Slaith

Slaith is a premium-quality knitwear brand with its roots in the rich and proud heritage of the Yorkshire textile trade.

Based in the town of Slaithwaite on the outskirts of Huddersfield – once the textile capital of the world – Slaith blends generations of expertise and knowledge with innovative techniques to create some of the finest knitwear available today. With its long heritage reflected in its name, Slaith’s ability to draw on expertise and knowledge gathered from decades of experience along with its determination to produce the best, results in a product range defined by timeless elegance.

Sourcing the finest natural fibres and using unique spinning and quality-exacting processes enables Slaith to be the only manufacturer in the world to produce seamless, 30-gauge garments. With multi-compound yarns producing the soft and silky handle of its exclusive collection, Slaith produces superior-quality knitwear that has to be seen and felt to be truly appreciated. Of outstanding quality, style, and durability, Slaith garments have innovative temperature regulation and wicking properties, which make them both practical and luxurious when worn next to the skin.

Slaith’s mission is to redefine standards of knitwear. It spins fine, strong yarns in its mill in Slaithwaite, using rare natural fibres to produce classic, stylish knitwear with superior fit. Every piece is hand-finished to the highest standard, combining advanced technology with expert skill every step of the way. Slaith aims to redefine standards and set new benchmarks for innovation and quality.

Changing the game and doing things differently is part of the Slaith philosophy. More than 160 years since the invention of the first automated knitting machine, Slaith’s specially modified machines are able to handle the finest gauge yarns, resulting in an exclusive offering to select and discerning retailers. This breakthrough breathes life into an industry that has remained unchanged for almost two centuries: its blend of rich heritage and pioneering technology is set to reinvent quality.

Following several years of hard work perfecting the brand, the Slaith collection was launched in early 2016, and features a stunning range of cashmere and merino pieces for both men’s and women’s styles. The range also includes several accessories, all available in a range of colours. Slaith’s use of stronger, longer yarns combined with  attention to detail and a determination to excel, help it to push past convention, “bringing together man and machine in perfect harmony”.

For autumn 17, Slaith is introducing two new styles to its already comprehensive range of classic knitwear: there will be a long-sleeved polo shirt for men and a crew neck cardigan for ladies. It is also adding two new colours – black cherry and emerald – which bring greater depth of colour to its existing palette of 22 shades.
