Eurolast Srl, a distributor of yarns for the hosiery and other sectors, will show its latest ranges at the October FIMAST exhibition in Brescia, Italy. The company will present a new stock service colour chart for Repetita, a yarn made from recycled polyester from plastic bottles, which it says represents ‘the new frontier of the circular economy’. Repetita is GRS certified, thanks to its high quality Made in Italy manufacturing process.

The essence of the new fibre, Eurolast says, is all contained in the brand name: Repetita - RE as in Recycling, because the commitment to respect the environment is a duty for the textile supply chain and is increasingly fundamental for both brands and consumers; PET – as in Polyethylene Terephthalate - the synthetic raw material from which the new fibre is born; and ITA – as in Italy, because the heart of the project consists in ennobling the raw material, coming from all over the world and certified by GRS, through a series of processes entirely made in Italy and a guaranteed and reliable supply chain.

Control of the entire supply chain also allows total traceability of Repetita and offers brands the possibility of guaranteeing consumers a 100% sustainable supply chain, starting with the raw material

“Choosing Repetita means making a sustainable choice, with the certainty of being able to count on a fibre of the highest quality which, thanks to the excellence of the manufacturing processes without compromise, offers exceptional performance, superior to other polyester fibres on the market,” explains Eurolast.

“Repetita is also ideal for all applications with Jacquard processing, from circular knitwear to orthogonal weaving, from straight knitwear to hosiery. In terms of performance, it can offer the comfort of microfiber, the same breathability and thermoregulation of synthetic fibres and, if necessary, an appearance very similar to that of natural fibres,” the company adds.

“The strength of the fibre and the solidity of the wide range of colours make it the ideal raw material for a second layer use in fashion and sportswear but also for application in the world of furniture and design. Its versatility allows, upon request, useful treatments of UV protection, antibacterial action, water repellency.”

Repetita is available in stock service in 32 colours and three counts, with more counts becoming available in the coming months.

“Thanks to the GRS certification, promoted by Textile Exchange, one of the most important non-profit organizations that promote responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector at an international level, Repetita is recognized for the fundamental role in recycling and in compliance with environmental and social in all stages of the production chain,” Eurolast says.

According to the company, control of the entire supply chain also allows total traceability of Repetita and offers brands the possibility of guaranteeing consumers a 100% sustainable supply chain, starting with the raw material.

Also, among Eurolast’s best sellers are creora bare elastomer, polyamide nylon 6 and nylon 66 yarns from Aquafil, conventional covered single-covered spiral, and double covered. Among the company’s coloured stock service yarns there is also polyamide 6, Borgolon dope dyed multi-filament nylon, polyamide 6 dope dyed nylon with Microlon microfibre, dope dyed polypropylene with Dryarn microfibre, Wool and Suedwolle wool blends, and Mulesing Free, and if necessary Chlorine Free and RWS yarn qualities.
