Pietro’s innovation is ready to help trail running participants to cope with temperature regulation, injuries, shortness of breath and anxiety. Pietro’s garment adapts to the body’s needs with a new knitting structure and high-tech sustainable solutions. Merino wool mixed with fungi fibre creates Auxetic Mycelium Fabric, bringing a range of benefits to the athlete. The auxetic material has a negative ratio, which stretches to expand and compress to better support the muscles in respiration or to support injuries. The structure easily expands to improve sweat evaporation under the arms and other moisture points.
