Aurora Glow, a new collection of 50-percent Celanese acetate/50-percent acrylic yarns, was
introduced by Glen Raven Yarn Group, Glen Raven, N.C., at the Yarn Fair in New York City. The new
yarns, showcase either white or black Celanese acetate variants. They are targeted for use in mens
and womens sweaters often found in the junior market. According to Carmen McClure, product
development, adding acetate to the acrylic yarn brings an extra sheen and silk-like luxury, while
retaining the fabrics strength. The product can be machine- or hand-washed based on results from
shrinkage and wash tests performed by Glen Raven.
