In addition to uses in the worlds of fashion and furnishings, for fancy yarns, decoration and accessories, an important application for the Gleaming collection is in the sector of technical clothing with high-visibility features.
The new range of reflective yarns Reflex, used for the production of fabrics and tapes, able to reflect the light and ensure good visibility for people wearing them in low-light situations, is augmented by new color shades in addition to the traditional greys.
The innovative reflective yarns in white, black, and light and dark multicolors offer new possibilities for:
- tapes, external labels and accessories;
- technical fabrics for work clothing with specific safety standards;
- uniforms, sports clothing and accessories; and
- hosiery, gloves, bibs and hats for night use, for winter clothing and for northern markets.
The latest addition to the range, with important new functionality, is the Reflex stretch yarn, which, apart from in the sectors described above, also finds application in flat bed or circular knitting and sewing. Its particular composition makes it softer and more versatile in comparison to traditional reflectives.
The Gleaming line, composed of articles which are mostly available in stock service, represents a completion of the range of yarns produced by the Marchi & Fildi Group. The Gleaming yarns are available in various thicknesses, widths and types in both metallized and transparent versions, and iridescent, reflective and phosphorescent effects. The offer also includes articles with particular features of resistance to chemical and dyeing treatments.
Amongst the most recent innovations is the line of metalloplastic yarns in 100-percent polyester obtained from post-consumer recycling with GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification.
