YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-04 16:00:00 – Shanghai

SPINEXPO Shanghai at its 30th session has partnered with Invista and Aquafil, fibre producers to experiment further within the active fashion trend area by looking at existing and future “ways of making”. Using fibres and materials inspired by the technicality of the garments of tomorrow, Studio Eva X Carola presents The Beauty of Making.

The Beauty of Making is a story of influence on how they learn, create, and co-create. The trend area will show products made in partnership with the two fibre manufacturers, with technical explanation of the research & development performed by their stylists, with the help of Diyang Merino Textile, Joinfair International, and the technicians from Santoni Shanghai.

Surrounding this area and the stand of the show activewear trend area partner Santoni, a new zone for circular knitting has been created, with a selection of over 15 companies all specialised in technical, functional and performance yarns.

Function, texture, form and style have been the key ingredients behind every product developed this season by the SPINEXPO team , said the organisers.

Through constantly exploring, researching and testing new knitting methods on Santoni Shanghai's seamless and circular knitting machines they take their collections to a new level and offer innovation in textiles and performance wear that has gone through the most stringent industry tests to confirm the final results

Invista is introducing the latest Coolmax brand technology solutions at the show, backed by distinctive new consumer-oriented branding that can be used across a broad product range covering a wide variety of fabric applications. Under the name Embrace the Heat, fabrics made with Coolmax can be tailored to meet the end user’s performance needs and are certified to ensure class-leading performance regardless of the supply source, the company reports.

Engineered for everyday comfort and performance, fabrics made with Coolmax Core technology are said to transport moisture away from the body to keep the wearer cool and dry, helping to optimise performance. Recommended end-uses include; socks, intimate apparel, ready-to-wear shirting, and sportswear tops.

Dryarn – the Feel Good microfibre by Aquafil is an innovative microfibre that is said to be one of the lightest fibres in the world, water-repellent, breathable, bacteriostatic and dermatologically tested. According to the manufacturer, Dryarn is ideal for a wide range of uses, such as first and second layers of clothing, fashion and sportswear. Dryarn performs best when used in its purest form or in high percentages blended with other raw materials.

It can prevent the absorption of moisture and is highly permeable for water vapor. This can give the fibre exceptional breathability: perspiration evaporates quickly without soaking the fabric, thus ensuring that the skin is always dry.

Diyang Merino Textile, a high-quality knitter with dyeing and finishing capabilities, is based in Jiaxin, China, and will present its latest fabric technology at the fair. The company specialises in supplying of fine micron merino wool for circular knitting to more than 100 industry customers worldwide, with a focus on outdoors and sportswear markets.

The show will take place from 29-31 August featuring the latest yarn, fibre, knitwear, knitted fabric and activewear collections at the World Expo Convention & Exhibition Centre Pudong, Shanghai.
