The union of Sorona fibres and Thindown

Related Keywords: fibres, insulated fabric, nylon, single sheet of fabric, sustainability in apparel

Wilmington
Summary: 
The blend of Sorona fibres and Thindown is designed to eliminate several drawbacks associated with the use of traditional down filling. According to DuPont, the combination can reduce cold spots with a single sheet of fabric versus quilted sections, delivering greater warmth and breathability, while simultaneously adding drape and stretch for greater movement. Additionally, with the use of bio-based Sorona fibres, the collaboration yields a more sustainable insulated material option versus traditional down, which comes from animal plumage, or nylon, which requires 40% more energy to produce.
