Fibers and yarns create comfortable, dry apparel

Advanced Textiles, Products, Upholstery | April 1, 2009 | By:

Problem: Staying dry and comfortable is the challenge for performance apparel fabrics.

Solution: Cocona® fibers and yarns use activated carbon made from recycled coconut shells, a natural and renewable resource that can be used in a wide range of knit and woven fabrics, as well as nonwovens, to provide effective evaporative cooling, odor absorption and UV protection. Apparel is lightweight, stretchable, washable and retains performance qualities for the life of the garment because the Cocona technology is contained inside the fiber and will not wash off or wear out.
