Organic fibers for sustainable yarn

Products | February 1, 2010 | By:

CRAILAR® Organic Fibers from Naturally Advanced Technology are the building blocks for the first truly sustainable yarn in the apparel industry. Organic Fibers are processed through a patented enzymatic bath created in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada. Prior to the bath, the fibers (up to a meter in length) are cut to the desired staple length, rivaling the very best long line cotton. These fibers then enter specialized processing equipment which turns the straw-like fibers into soft, white fibers similar to organic cotton. The result is a yarn with the warmth and feel of organic cotton, but with characteristics such as greater tensile strength. Every step of the process is certified organic.
