Nilit Introduces NILIT® Breeze

Nilit Ltd., Israel, has unveiled NILIT® Breeze flat or textured nylon 6,6 yarn for use in sportswear, outerwear, workwear, underwear, socks, hosiery and shapewear. Fabrics made with the yarn have been tested by Centexbel, the Belgian Textile Research Centre, and shown to lower body temperatures by almost 1°C compared to fabrics knitted using standard yarns.

The yarn's flat cross-section structure offers a wide surface area to transfer body heat quickly. An inorganic additive integrated into the polymer increases surface area and creates small channels that promote cooling. A texturing process creates a low-bulk yarn to maximize breathability and ventilation in the garment. This combination also provides ultraviolet protection.
