Montreal-based Consoltex-Sealtex has introduced its All Points collection of fabrics developed
using Meryl® nylon from Milan-based Nylstar. The soft, lightweight, matte-look fabrics, constructed
of a 70/68, full-dull type 66 yarn, are available with sunblock protection and are targeted
primarily for outdoor apparel. The collection also includes Meryl/cotton blends.Meryl is highly
moisture-absorbent and offers almost four times more UV protection than polyester. It is also
nearly 30 percent thinner than cotton.
