LYCRA® fibre explained
WHAT IS LYCRA® FIBRE?
LYCRA® fibre is a synthetic elastane fibre that can stretch up to seven times its own length and return to its original state – over and over again. Which adds great fit, comfort and freedom of movement to any hosiery garment.
It is never used alone in a hosiery garment, it is always combined with another fibre, it is a versatile and invisible ingredient that improves the characteristics of natural and man made host fabrics.
WHY IS LYCRA® fibre USED IN HOSIERY?
• It makes the hosiery hug your legs, giving ease of movement
• It retains the shape of the hosiery, stopping wrinkled ankles and baggy knees
• It helps bring fashion to the legs as it allows a wide range if styling possibilities.
