NuYarn Fabric Technologies

Nuyarn offers new possibilities, efficiencies and the chance to create products that have never been seen before.

Nuyarn technology produces yarn for ultra-light, high performance stretch fabrics. Our environmentally friendly Nuyarn process allows weavers and knitters to create unparalleled fabric weights that match the stretch and regain properties of other fibres, but with performance properties that no other yarn can deliver.

Unlike traditional core spun or ring spun methods that twist the life out of fibre, Nuyarn technology drafts fibres along a high performance core, creating a structure that amplifies the fibre’s natural properties.

This incredibly fine, 2 ply twist-free yarn performs better across the board – in stretch, loft, strength, comfort, volume, dry time, next to skin feel and mechanical abrasion, spirality, pilling, elasticity, warmth, and ultraviolet protection. As a mechanical process, rather than a chemical treatment, our benefits won’t wash out over time.

On a like for like basis, Nuyarn technology uses 30% less raw materials, and with top-of-the-line machinery it can be spun between 140 -240m a minute, compared to conventional ring spinning at 12-14m a minute. That means our facilities consume less space, and use less energy.

Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for durability

The combination of quick-drying, durable polypropylene with antibacterial merino wool creates a soft, light blend that maintains its shape and is perfect for active users.

 

Benefits

We’ve put Nuyarn to the test, and the science stacks up.  Nuyarn improves performance across the board and our customers can feel it. As a mechanical process, rather than a chemical treatment, the benefits won’t wash out over time.

Ultra-light: Performance without the weight

Thanks to its unique open structure, Nuyarn technology produces incredibly lightweight fabrics that behave like heavier ones. This means light garments can still offer high performance strength, comfort and warmth.

Stretch: More stretch and regain

By drafting around a high performance core, Nuyarn creates unparalleled stretch and regain. Our low spirality ensures that garments don’t lose their shape over time and adjust to the body for a perfect fit.

Stronger: 47% Stronger

Nuyarn technology significantly improves the strength of any fabric, in particular increasing its burst strength so it is more resistant to abrasion, holes and damage. This durability means that Nuyarn products are incredibly high performing and suitable for all conditions, from casual wear to intense outdoor pursuits.

Comfier: 35% Loftier

Conventional ring-spun garments can often be abrasive and scratchy against the skin, caused by protruding fibre ends. But Nuyarn’s unique spinning method creates a completely twist-free yarn, which significantly improves next-to-skin comfort.

Drier: Dries 5 x Faster

Nuyarn is dry and breathable, with the ability to wick moisture away from the skin. Its quick-drying properties mean that Nuyarn garments are able to stay fresher for longer and remain comfortable during any kind of activity.

Warmer: 35% Warmer

Nuyarn’s lofty open structure helps to keep air trapped within fabric. Unlike traditional twisting methods, this creates insulating pockets that supply warmth without the weight of a heavy garment, and makes it a perfect fit for performance apparel where temperature regulation is required in hot or cold climates.

Tougher: 120% Tougher Seams

Even the lightest Nuyarn fabrics have strong durability in both directions, meaning that seams remain tough. This is thanks to Nuyarn’s spinning method, not a chemical treatment, so garments continue will perform at their best even after many uses and washes.

 

 

 

Versatility: Nuyarn's versatility is the material difference.

EVERY FIBRE HAS INHERENT PROPERTIES THAT MAKES IT PERFORM IN UNIQUE WAYS. LAUNCHED IN 2013, NUYARN MERINO PROVED THE TECHNOLOGY AND NOW WE HAVE APPLIED IT TO A RANGE OF MATERIALS, WITH OUTSTANDING RESULTS.

Polypropylene: Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for durability

The combination of quick-drying, durable Polypropylene with antibacterial merino wool creates a soft, light blend that maintains its shape and is perfect for active users.

Tencel: Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for softness

A natural fibre regenerated from wood cellulose, Tencel’s strong, soft and absorbent fibres, combined with Nuyarn, make for a silky, soft fabric that is still warm and durable. It is created through an award-winning eco-friendly process.

Bamboo: Nuyarn's ultimate blend for comfort

Bamboo’s exceptionally soft and smooth properties are amplified by Nuyarn’s unique twist-free structure, minimising skin irritation. It is also durable, anti-stretch, strong and moisture-wicking, with anti-bacterial properties to keep apparel fresh.

Merino Wool: Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for performance

Merino and Nuyarn are a natural partnership, producing a durable, dry, warm and easily wearable fabric that is perfect for all levels of use. Nuyarn takes the renowned properties of merino and has been scientifically proven to amplify them across the board.

Banana: Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for lightness

Sustainably sourced, renewable and 100% natural, the combination of Nuyarn, merino and banana fibre produces a soft, lightweight fabric with a linen-like texture. It has increased UV protection that is perfect for outdoor pursuits, as well as a natural lustre, durability and moisture-wicking abilities.

Mohair: Nuyarn’s ultimate blend for antibacterial properties

Mohair is well-known for its impressive lustre and its antibacterial purposes. Nuyarn amplifies mohair’s innate moisture and temperature-control abilities to produce a fabric that also has strength and stretch. Nuyarn mohair is regularly used for medical-assisting garments.
