UNITIN, a leading indigo yarn specialist, has expanded its product portfolio by adding a new exclusive yarn, Ne 30/1 Compact Cotton “S Torsion” Indigo 11 (Inverse Torsion), for seamless technology and circular knitting.
The yarns for seamless denim fashion were showcased at previous BLUEZONE International Denim Trade Fair in Munich, when DEN/IM, a new one piece denim fabric concept, was presented in co-operation with Santoni, Lenzing and Tonello.
The company explains, UNITIN indigo-dyed cotton has been developed to eliminate the need to dye during the garment process, saving enormous amount of water. Available in a range of indigo hues, different denim tones can be achieved. UNITIN is, at this stage, offering the Ne 30/1 in Z & S torsion on standard dark indigo colour while other counts or colours, as lighter ones or blue-black, are available now on Z torsion.
Michael Kininmonth, Business Development Manager – Lenzing commented, “Having previously worked with UNITIN indigo yarns on a flat-bed knit project and knowing the innovative garment processing developments Tonello have brought to the market, the decision to work on such a project was an easy one.”
It’s worth mentioning here the new complete look capsule collection developed by Santoni is composed of body hugging, comfortable, sporty, chic and trendy denim items which aims to further enhance the idea of innovative knit denim as a counter-point to the traditional woven denim fabric. The genuine DNA of denim is maintained with contributions from the four leading supply chain partners, with UNITIN being the provider of the indigo dyed yarns.
