Q14 is a lightweight and breathable cotton fabric, used for our luxury underwear. Its unique open knit construction allows air to circulate around the body, making it ideal for underwear that’s cool and comfortable in any climate.
‘Quality 14’ was developed in the 1930s, when Sunspel owner Peter Hill re-engineered traditional Nottinghamshire lace warp-knitting machines to create a cotton fabric with an open, or ‘cellular’, knit. As well as being breathable and cool, the unique way the yarn locks together means that
the fabric is extremely strong and durable.
