FIBERS & YARNS
I want to know more about my tropical knitwear. What is my KRELwear piece made of?
Cotton: Soft and supple, cotton yarns are perfect for warm weather tops and accessories. Cotton yarns are known to be strong, durable, and have excellent water absorption properties with short drying times, which makes them great for the every body.
Metallic Yarn: Polyester yarn mainly used with other yarns for a sparkly effect.
Viscose: Viscose, more commonly known in the U.S. as Rayon, is a man-made fiber created from cellulose chemically extracted from trees. It's a little weaker in strength than cotton, and thus is often used to make delicate, lighter clothing.
Tencel: We love tencel at KRELwear! Tencel is a man-made fibercreated and produced by Austrian company Lenzing, Tencel Lyocell is a semi-synthetic fiber with properties almost identical to cotton. It's part of the Rayon family made from renewable wood materials. It is a fully eco- fiber in every stage of creation.
Tencel is made from the pulp of Eucalyptus trees which grow on low grade land and don't require much water. They also grow very quickly which allows more Tencel production. The solvents used are organic and are continually re-used because N-Methlmorpholine-N-Oxide is 99% recovered.
Tencel production requires very little unprocessed water. Most of the surplus water used in the making of tencel is evaporated off or purified by a waste water treatment plant which is what allows the remaaing concentrated solvent to be recycled back into the process.
it is a fully eco- fiber.
Variegated Yarn: Variegated dyeing is a process of dyeing yarn in which multiple colors are applied along the length of each strand of yarn which may or may not repeat after a fixed interval.Variegated dyeing yarn is sometimes referred to as space dyed and dip dyed yarn.
Elastic Yarn: Polyester yarn which is mainly used as waistbands but also used in combination with other yarns to give a piece more stretch.
GLOW Yarn: Polyester yarn that glows in the dark and blacklight. Used in combination with other yarns for added effect.
Neon Yarn: Polyester yarn that glows in blacklight. Used in combination with other yarns for added effect.
