Outdoor style for all seasons and any setting

The current advances in yarn technology continue to evolve, and at Zepel we seek opportunities with our high-performance brands to take advantage of these innovations. Our newest addition, FibreGuard Outdoor, introduces further refinements to yarn that combat Australia’s harsh elements. The secret to this innovative range is the composition of Solution Dyed Polyolefin which has numerous benefits, most notably its powerful resistant to UV exposure and easy clean qualities. A yarn that is specially created for outdoor environments, this powerful synthetic material is first solution dyed, penetrating the fibre in its entirety, and then extracted for yarn manufacture. These fabrics are also moisture, mildew, odour resistant and anti-microbial. 

Even though these exclusive benefits appear to take the limelight, it is also FibreGuard Outdoor’s modern style, aesthetics, and textural designs that are equally notable. Outdoor fabrics are no longer limited to basic neutrals, stripes, or leafy patterning, but have become sophisticated and striking.
