Celanese Acetate And Sapona Develop Celanna Yarns

Sapona Manufacturing Co., Cedar Falls, N.C., and Celanese Acetate, New York City, have announced the joint creation of new Celanna brand yarns that will be available globally. Celanna is an air-entangled combination of cellulose acetate with various other fibers, resulting in a yarn with enhanced physical properties. Garments made from Celanna blends offer comfort and performance; feel smooth against the skin; and have a flattering drape and a soft, fluid hand, according to Sapona. Initially, the companies will offer fabric blends of Celanese acetate and nylon fibers. Easy-care Celanna blends open new markets for acetate, such as seamless bodywear, because they are washable in some constructions. Other end-use markets for Celanna knits and wovens include tailored mens and womens sportswear, dresses, sweater knits and upholstery."Under agreement with Celanese Acetate, Sapona will be the sole source for several acetate blends under the Celanna trademark. Sapona has put forth extensive development effort and capital expenditure to produce new Celanna quality yarns," said Dean Lail, president, Sapona. "Together they are developing yarns, fabrics and processes that will help speed up the introduction of a broad range of new knit and woven apparel products."
