Brescia - Eurolast will showcase a range of synthetic and natural yarns at the upcoming FIMAST exhibition including Repetita, the new GRS certified polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles
Eurolast srl distributes and personalizes yarns for hosiery, socks, underwear and seamless sportswear, and jersey knitwear for the fashion, outdoor and sports markets.
At FIMAST 2021 the company will present its new stock service colour chart for the Repetita yarn, which, thanks to a high quality manufacturing process, transforms waste as a precious resource for sustainable textiles.
"The essence of the new fibre is all contained in the brand name: Repetita," Eurolast says. "RE like Recycling, because the commitment to respect the environment is a duty for the textile supply chain and is increasingly fundamental for both brands and consumers. PET - Polyethylene Terephthalate - the synthetic raw material from which the new fiber is born. ITA, like Italy, because the heart of the project consists in ennobling the raw material, coming from all over the world and certified by GRS, through a series of processes entirely made in Italy and a guaranteed and reliable supply chain."
Repetita is said to offer exceptional performance for the hosiery sector as well as for all applications with jacquard processing such as circular knitting.
In terms of performance, Eurolast says it can offer the comfort of microfiber, the same breathability and thermoregulation of synthetic fibres and, if necessary, an appearance very similar to that of natural fibres.
The strength of the fibre and the solidity of the wide range of colors also make it the ideal raw material for a second layer use in fashion and sportswear but also for application in the world of furniture and design. Its versatility allows, upon request, useful treatments of UV protection, antibacterial action, water repellency.
Repetita is available in stock service in 32 colors and three titrations, which is set to increase in the coming months.
The control of the entire 'Made in Italy' supply chain also allows total traceability of Repetita and offers brands the possibility of guaranteeing consumers a 100% sustainable supply chain, starting with the raw material.
