perPETual now offer a range of high-quality sustainable spandex covered polyester filament yarn. perPETual spandex covered polyester filament yarns are available in any denier between 75 and 300 deniers. Spandex is a synthetic fiber that is known for having exceptional elasticity. It is predominately used in the production of products such as denim, leggings, socks and other garments requiring stretchability. Our spandex covered yarn also has higher thermal stability, meaning that consumers can process the fabrics at a relatively higher temperature. Furthermore, we can provide covered yarn with recycled spandex if required by the customer.
To create this spandex covered yarn we use a process called air covering which entails combining two or more yarns, both elastic and non-elastic, to create unique yarns with a new combination of characteristics. In this process, the texturising and air covering of the spandex happens simultaneously which ensures the product has even interlacing and even stretching of the spandex. Thus eliminating the possibility of any defects in the fabric.
Vivek Tandon of perPETual said, “We are already supplying various mills with this new product which was developed as a result of customer demand and enquiries. We thank our customers for helping us to create this product and we are pleased that it has meant their stringent quality requirements. We look forward to developing other products together. “
