To address consumer desire for more color variety in comfort apparel made with natural fibers, Hyosung has developed new creora Color+ spandex for natural blended materials, which it will introduce at Interfilière Connect taking place online throughout this month.
creora Color+ has the same performance stretch characteristics as Hyosung’s flagship fiber, creora Power Fit, with the added benefit of providing richer colors in natural and cellulose yarns – an attractive fiber blend for leading intimate, activewear and ready-to-wear brands.
“As regular spandex does not take color well, it is a challenge to achieve all-over, rich color when dyeing it with natural fibers such as cotton, rayon, and modal,” said Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, Hyosung EMEA marketing director. “With new creora Color+, brands can now offer consumers fashionable, colorful apparel made with natural fibers without ever having to worry about the dreaded grin-through.”
According to Hyosung, new creora Color+ for natural fibers will be a nice addition to its successful creora Color+ for stretch fabrics made with nylon, a well-established yarn used in activewear for its ability to produce deep and exclusive colors without grin-through.
As demand for sustainable materials continues to rise, Hyosung will also present its expanded multi-function regen collection of GRS-certified recycled spandex, nylon and polyester fibers made with 100% reclaimed waste at Interfilière Connect.
