    Knit is an excellent furniture fabric with its durable and natural resilient properties. The woolen upholstery fabric covering Ekstrem is made by Norwegian Devold and consists of 90% wool and 10% polyester.

    Knitted from one continuous thread, it provides an elasticity which is essential when fitted to the chair’s organic shape. The knitted fabric provides a soft and breathable surface and features a classic quadratic pattern.
