Established in 1953 by Paul Stiegler, Simplex Knitting Company began knitting traditional Simplex fabrics.
The primary application for such fabrics in at this time was for ladies’ gloves. The construction of Simplex fabric with its natural give provided a good fit to the hand.
Simplex Knitting Company Ltd introduced a new market for shoe linings in the 1960’s, before transitioning into lingerie and intimate apparel fabrics circa. 1980.
The company was honoured to supply Simplex fabric to make gloves for Her Majesty the Queen.
As well as the traditional Simplex fabics which lent the company its name, we now offer an extensive range of 40 gauge warp knit fabrics including elastic tricots, powernets, tulles, satins and meshes.
The finest quality warp knitted fabrics can be found at Simplex Knitting. Our team ensure all fabric meets our accredited standards.
