A Mysterious Super Number (Part 1)

Very often worsted wool fabrics have “Super 110’s” or “Super 120’s” letters along the selvedge. What could it possibly mean? What do these numbers say to experts and those who are about to make a purchase?

This number indicates fiber quality, namely its fineness. E.g., Super 100’s corresponds to threads measuring 18.5 microns in diameter. These are heavyweight fabrics for suits to be worn every day.

Super 110’s and Super 120’s are best suited for formal suits, trousers, blazers to be worn on a daily basis. These fabrics can withstand vigorous wear and make comfortable suits that are always a pleasure to put on.
