Buhler Set To Debut New Yarns At Material World

Jefferson, Ga.-based Buhler Quality Yarns Corp. will introduce four new yarns – Supima® and
MicroModal® fashion slubs, Supima Royal, TransDRY™ and Supima Outlast® Viscose – at the upcoming
Material World show to be held September 30-October 2 in Los Angeles.

Supima and MicroModal fashion slubs is a 100-percent extra-long-staple cotton ring-spun yarn
targeted at the T-shirt market.

Supima Royal is a plied yarn that offers properties found in both single and plied yarns
including evenness, low hairiness, soft hand and strength. Buhler reports this economical yarn is
suitable for high-end apparel, luxury intimate apparel, hosiery, bed linens and other home
furnishing products.

Buhler has created a yarn featuring Cary, N.C.-based Cotton Incorporated’s TransDRY
technology – a moisture-management application for 100-percent Supima cotton products
(See ”
Incorporated Debuts TransDRY™ Technology
,” September/October 2008)
. The high-performance
technology is targeted at the performance apparel market.

Buhler’s fourth new yarn features Outlast Viscose from Boulder, Colo.-based Outlast
Technologies Inc. blended with Supima cotton. Supima Oulast Viscose yarn was designed to offer
comfort and thermal management properties in a single yarn. The yarn is suitable for performance
apparel, but has also found a market in sleepwear for menopausal women.

“Buhler is already known for its quality and service throughout the region,” said David
Sasso, vice president, sales, Buhler. “Our new yarns demonstrate our drive to be innovative and to
offer our customers the ability to differentiate themselves for their competitors.”
