Invista Offers Lycra® Sport Program

Invista, Wichita, Kan., has unveiled the Lycra® Sport performance standard for outdoor and active apparel fabrics containing Lycra® fiber. The launch includes a new logo and hangtag as well as an advertising program and a new website. The program emphasizes high technology and performance standards associated with the Lycra brand, and its testing procedures and fabric qualification standards are being shown to certain mill partners. Apparel fabric and sock manufacturers and brands that participate in the Lycra Sport program must comply with the new standard in terms of Lycra fiber content, fabric weight, recovery power, bi-directional elongation, fabric set, fabric shrinkage and fit.
