Steps selects Nilit Black Diamond for invisible fashion socks

Steps Footsocks, a Netherlands based manufacturer of invisible socks to provide seamless, no-slip comfort underneath footwear fashions, has chosen Nilit Black Diamond nylon 6.6 yarns to provide shimmer and shine to the company’s special line of invisible fashion socks. 

Nilit Fibers designed Nilit Black Diamond nylon yarns especially for high fashion legwear and intimate apparel products. Made with Nilit black dope-dyed nylon 6.6 paired with a special, shiny yarn, the combination creates a dazzling yarn effect that is soft to the touch. According to the manufacturer, Nilit Black Diamond is dyeable and reversible offering innumerable options for product designers.

Fashion and performance

“Nilit Black Diamond was a brilliant choice for Steps,” commented Karin Hems, Steps Marketing Director. “Beautiful, soft, and durable, Nilit Black Diamond nylon yarns give our designers endless ways to add glimmering elegance and glamourous 3-D effects to our new sparkling invisible socks.”
