With the goal of expanding its offer of yarns from recycled raw materials, the MFT division of the Marchi & Fildi Group has completed the range of metalloplastic yarns in its Gleaming collection, with the addition of 100% recycled polyester yarns coming from post-consumer material and with the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification.

Starting from recycled polyester with traceable origin, in compliance with environmental and social criteria extended to all the phases of the supply chain, metalloplastic yarns are obtained with the same aesthetic features and performance, compared to similar products based on virgin raw materials, the company reports.

“Thanks to our commitment in the research of materials, we are able to propose metalloplastic yarns produced with 100% recycled material; the film used for the production of flat yarns, too, is in recycled polyester, with a quality level that is suitable for cutting,” the company explains.

“Till now it was possible to find in the market only metalloplastic yarns with not recycled polyester flat yarn, twisted with certified fibres. This represents an important step forward to implement a circular economy possibility for this kind of products too.”

GRS certified Gleaming yarns can be supplied in gold and silver, colours and transparent, in various counts, widths and types, and are suitable for use in flat and circular knitting, hosiery and weaving, as a component in fancy yarns.

Gleaming yarns are offered in different thicknesses, widths and types with both metallized and transparent, iridescent, refracting and phosphorescent effects. The collection also includes items with special features of resistance to chemical and dyeing treatments.

The metalloplastic yarns find application in the world of fashion and furniture, for creative and fancy yarns and fabrics, accessories and decorations. Products with refractive features are also used in technical items like uniforms and workwear, sport garments and accessories, external ribbons and labels.
