Nilit, an Israeli yarn producer at the upcoming exhibition next month in France dedicated to innovations in the sports and outdoor markets to unveiled new range of nylon 6.6 yarns The Innergy Sport range has the ability to capture body heat and reflect it back to the body to keep wearers warm and will also showcase its Air Textured Soft (ATS) nylon 6.6 yarns to the visitors.

Pierluigi Berardi, Nilit’s global marketing director said that the Innergy Sport is a very special performance yarn that has been proven to help active people feel better and look better. Designers can use this exciting yarn to create activewear that provides unique benefits for athletes at all levels.

According to Nilit, by incorporating a “naturally occurring mineral” into the fibres, they can convert thermal energy and generates the FIR (far infrared ray) emissions – subsequently leading to greater user comfort and better athletic performance.

Following independent laboratory testing, it’s also been claimed that the yarns can increase oxygen levels in the blood, reduce lactic acid build up, and relieve muscle fatigue and tension.

These yarns are said to adopt a unique air jet texturising process to create a “softer than cotton” feel for performance apparel, and are said to provide garments with a number of moisture management, UV protection, thermal insulation and antimicrobial protection properties, and can also be offered in semi-dull and full-dull variations.

Speaking at a ‘Textile Dialogue’ seminar session on innovation in sports and outdoor clothing during last month’s Intertextile exhibition in Shanghai, Beraldi expanded on the company’s plans to implement ATS.

Nilit have finalised the technology and want to combine the ATS yarns with other variations of performance fibres, such as with their ‘Nilit Heat’ range. These fibres can absorb body temperature and then release it through fabrics. Beyond thermal insulation, they are also antibacterial, deoderising, sweat-free and very ‘environmentally friendly’.

They would also want to use ATS alongside their ‘Nilit Breeze’ fibres. These have special additives which create micro-channels to allow cooling properties.
