Nilit Introduces NILIT® Heat Yarn
Israel-based nylon 6,6 fiber manufacturer Nilit Ltd. has introduced NILIT® Heat, a warming yarn that conserves and maintains natural body heat.
Nilit reports the yarn, which incorporates coffee charcoal created from coffee bean residue, offers superior thermo insulation, antibacterial properties, a strong deodorizing effect, and a sweat-free sensation for comfort and performance that lasts throughout the day. According to the company, the yarn offers the best warming performance when knitted as the inner layer of next-to-skin garments such as base layers, underwear, socks, legwear, sportswear and winterwear.
“We’re very excited about our innovative Nilit Heat yarn and its unparalleled performance,” said Alon Weiser, R&D and technical service manager, Nilit. “The complex structure of the coffee charcoal additive in this incredible yarn effectively captures body heat and keeps it in the garment, to keep wearers warm in any weather.”
Nilit will debut the fiber at ISPO 2014, to take place Jan. 26-29, 2014 in Munich, Germany.
