Contifibre locks in the stitch
Thursday, 29 October 2009

Casaloldo - Nylon yarn specialist Contifibre has developed Contifil, a bicomponent yarn structure which locks in the stitches during the hosiery finishing process to give a ladder resistant bright garment.

The Italian firm launched this development project more than two years ago to develop and commercialise a series of technologically advanced yarns for the production of fine denier anti-ladder hosiery. Working closely with Invista, the resulting technologies were Lycra Fusion covered yarns and the patented Contifil polyamide. As Contifibre says, identical in their aim, but completely different in their appearance in order to meet the various demands of the hosiery consumers.
