KoSa Introduces New Yarn Products

Charlotte, N.C.-based KoSa has added three new polyester yarns to its product line.Imbue has antimicrobial properties furnished by an imbedded silver ceramic additive that provides lifetime resistance to the development of bacterial and fungal growth. Imbue is targeted for use in performance and fashion apparel, as well as in home furnishings, medical, hospitality and industrial applications.Stretch-aire®, a single, atmospherically dyeable yarn, has a comfortable, cotton-like hand and appearance with stretch. Possible applications include sports and thermal wear, intimate apparel, T-shirts, loungewear and others in which comfort stretch is desired. Stretch-aire can be combined with other yarns for use in circular-knit and seamless styles.Accepta yarns accept dye at lower temperatures than standard polyester, yet they still exhibit excellent colorfastness and fade resistance, according to KoSa. They can be blended with other heat-sensitive fibers such as spandex, wool and acetate to provide improved fabric performance and hand, styling benefits and excellent printing and dyeing effects.Sample garments and fabrics made with Imbue, Stretch-aire and Accepta may be viewed at KoSas fabric library in Charlotte.
