Lycra Anti-Slip fibre is an exceptional denim seam slippage solution for applications in single core spandex fabrics that require durable stretch and good recovery power. Designed to help prevent seam slippage and improve garment quality and yield, this patent pending fibre helps maintain garment appearance wash after wash and wear after wear. It is a versatile fibre that makes possible for a multitude of fabric developments and constructions, including open structures and use of PES/Viscose blends, and cotton blends achieving a soft touch and authentic appearance. By using Lycra Anti-Slip fibre in the core of Lycra dualFX technology yarn, the anti-slippage performance will be further enhanced.
Julien Born, Chief Commercial Office, Lycra: “Jeans are the most commonly returned garments purchased online. The majority of denim returns are style or fit related, which leads to consumer dissatisfaction with the quality or aesthetics of the product. Several of these issues can be linked to seam slippage. With Lycra Anti-Slip fibre, consumers can have stretch jeans that last longer, while maintaining the fit and shape.”
