Igor Luzinov awarded Kentwool Distinguished Professorship in Natural Fibers

Igor Luzinov of Clemson University Monday became the first recipient of the Kentwool Distinguished Professorship in Natural Fibers, an honor named for a 176-year-old textile company that remains committed to innovation and excellence in natural fibers, specifically wool. A $250,000 gift from Kentwool in 2009 enabled Clemson to receive a matching gift from the lottery-funded SmartState program creating the endowment that made the professorship possible. Kentwool is headquartered in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, and has a 135,000-square-foot yarn production plant in Pickens County.
