31st May 2012, Migdal Ha'emek
Leading Israeli Nylon 6.6 producer Nilit announced today that its innovative patent pending Nilit Breeze speciality yarn is available as a performance fibre for sportswear, hosiery, underwear, shapewear, socks, outerwear and workwear.
Available in specially textured and flat nylon 6.6 yarns, Nilit Breeze fabrics are said to have been proven to cool wearers by almost one degree Celsius when compared to fabrics knitted with standard fibres. According to Nilit, independent testing was performed by the Centexbel textile research centre in Belgium and a copy of the certificate is available upon request from Nilit.
“Nilit Breeze ends the era of hot, uncomfortable active wear. The yarn’s cooling effect comes from a special cross-section, the insertion of an inorganic additive in the polymer itself and a unique texturing process,” Nilit explained in a statement today.
The combination is said to give fabrics very efficient ventilation capabilities and UV protective properties and as a result, garments made with Nilit Breeze keep the wearer more comfortable during and after physical exertion.
In addition to its benefits for active wear, Nilit says Nilit Breeze brings shapewear and hosiery to the next level as products made with it are soft, flexible, smooth and fit the body’s contours to move with the wearer. They are also said to provide comfort, control and elegance by keeping the wearer cool in the heat of summer.
“Always at the forefront of textile technology, we at Nilit are constantly striving to produce high-quality yarns with added consumer benefits, " commented Michal Ron Gavish, Global Marketing Manager at Nilit.
"Nilit Breeze is a perfect example. With its innovative cooling effect and soft feel, Nilit Breeze is the perfect solution for today's sports garments, hosiery and shapewear."
Nilit produces nylon 6.6 and microfiber yarns in a broad selection of dtex and filament counts, lustre levels, and types of cross-sections. Its yarns are used for knitwear, wovens and spandex covering applications for the production of fashionable and functional leg wear, body wear, intimate apparel and active wear.
Nilit is a privately owned company with headquarters in Israel. It works closely with its international customer base from offices in Italy, the United States, Germany, France, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Suzhou, China.
