The densely woven wool and cotton blend of Fuse creates a close pattern of ribbed stripes in which the weave creates rows of stich-like patterning. Because the stripes of Fuse are fragmented rather than solid, the two colours in the textile meld, creating a subtle mid colour when seen across a larger surface.
This fusing of the colours mellows even apparently sharp combinations such as the autumnal orange on charcoal, or a zesty yellow on beige. It also brings complexity to combinations of forest greens or cream tones. The lighter colourways may include foreign fibers adding to its richness and vibrancy. While the colour palette of Fuse relates strongly to those of Pulsar and Reflex, the almost blended colours of this stripe design allow for particularly rich colour associations when used in combination with other textiles in the collection.
The stripes of Fuse run parallel to the selvedge.
