Celliant Unveils New Yarn Technology

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — December 4, 2014 — Celliant® has announced new yarn technologies, including four new blends: Celliant Nylon, Celliant Dry Energy,  Celliant Pima Cotton and Celliant Merino. These new technologies are among eight offerings to be shown at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, January 21-24, 2015 in Salt Lake City,

Nylon Yarns
Hologenix LLC, makers of Celliant polyester Infrared (IR) yarn technology, will now offer Celliant technology in two versatile nylon yarns, 70D and 40D FDY, which are available beginning January 2015. Celliant mineral based yarn creates IR light that penetrates into the muscle and tissue to increase circulation, which leads to improved recovery and increased performance.
Dry Energy Technology
Celliant yarns with patented drirelease® technology have created Dry Energy Technology. The combination of Celliant, with its ability to break apart water molecules and energy enhancing properties and drirelease pulling moisture to the surface, creates a superior moisture management and performance system.
Celliant Pima Cotton
Celliant, along with The S Group, has developed a Celliant Pima Cotton through the Cofaco Industries mill in Peru. The new intimate blend yarn combines the comfort of a natural fiber with the health and performance benefits of Celliant. Pima, prized for its durability, long staple softness, and its ability to hold color, makes a great addition to the Celliant fabric line up. Naturally soft and intended for base layers and active applications, this yarn combines the natural comfort and softness of Pima Cotton and Celliant in two great fabrics: 50-percent Pima cotton/50-percent Celliant blend; and a 47-percent Pima cotton/47-percent Celliant/6-percent spandex blend.
Celliant Merino
Celliant is developing a Merino wool intimate yarn blend that will be available in the first quarter of 2015. The yarn will have all the proven attributes of Celliant combined with Merino wool’s softness next to the skin, breathability, anti static property and odor resistance.  The Celliant Merino is renewable and biodegradable. Wool is an efficient temperature regulator, retaining essential body heat when the weather is cold, while releasing heat and moisture when it’s hot. Merino combined with Celliant increases circulation to make the body work more efficiently, creating a hybrid performance yarn for outdoor and athletic pursuits.
Celliant’s patented and clinically proven technology harnesses and recycles the body’s natural energy through a range of yarns and fabrics. Celliant’s science utilizes a blend of thirteen minerals and proprietary ingredients that are embedded into the core of the yarn. The formulated Celliant yarns are then knit or woven into fabrics. The Celliant technology is based in physics and biochemistry: ‘heat’ is transferred into infrared light-IR, which is emitted into the body and absorbed by the tissues and muscles. When worn near the body, Celliant fabrics lead to increased oxygen levels, improved muscle recovery, heightened strength, body temperature regulation, and improved quality of sleep.

Celliant technology is ideal for the extreme demands of outdoor sport applications in summer and winter clothing as well as hard goods
