www.news.com.au

NEW Zealand scientists have developed a revolutionary new fabric that is stab and flame resistant, but as light to wear as wool.

Dr Peter Ingham, a scientist at the New Zealand government-owned research group AgResearch, said the new fabric was tough, could withstand a blowtorch, and had many commercial applications.

Dr Ingham said it was expected to do a good job protecting soldiers from flying shrapnel and could be worn by prison wardens to help protect them from possible attacks...

It's an interesting invention, so well done Kiwis!

These are the kinds of threads I love to see. Thanks for posting.

I have been following these kinds of developments for years.

I wonder how stab "proof" it really is? Or if it's just fairly resistant? I wonder how it compares to chain mail in this regard. Flame resistant too?? Sweet!

I'll just throw one of these kiwi hoodies over some balistic body armor, and I will be resistant to knives, bats, bullets, and flamethrowers. This will make my day to day life sooooo much more tolerable.
