Functionality

Polylana® fiber is the only low impact alternative to 100% acrylic and wool in the market. Polylana® fiber delivers quality, value, and a great low-impact story without added cost.

Polylana® is a patent pending staple fiber composed of a proprietary blend of modified polyester pellets, and rPET flakes. This proprietary blend allows Polylana® fiber to be dyed at a low temperature, and gives Polylana® yarn, when knitted, a unique loft and feel.

Basic blends of Polylana® fiber with Acrylic, Cotton, Viscose or Wool, easily replaces the conventional counterparts.

 

To enhance sustainability, functionality and/or aesthetics, Polylana® fiber can be spun with Lenzing™ EcoVero™, Recycled Cotton, BCI Cotton, Organic Cotton, Recycled Wool, (Recycled) Nylon, Merino or Cashmere.
