Cone Denim, a global leader in denim innovation, announces the enhanced stretch of Level II SGene yarn technology. Developed under the direction of Cone’s R&D incubator, Cone 3D, Level II expands the Collection and takes SGene’s superior stretch performance to the next level using Cone Denim’s patented dual-core spun yarns. The superior force of Level II SGene combined with its expanded global scale out of the U.S., Mexico, and China opens exciting strategic and sourcing opportunities for apparel brands worldwide.

Independent lab tests show Level II SGene dual-core yarns are engineered with 25 percent increased stretch power and snapback effect that provide even greater shape conformity and slimming effect for advanced comfort and confidence.

“Our SGene technology revolutionized stretch denims,” said Kara Nicholas, vice president product development and marketing. “Using our patented stretch technology hidden within the yarn, we virtually eliminated ‘bagging knee’ syndrome and created a new standard for superior shape retention and recovery performance. Our new Level II fabrics are a great addition to the SGene family, elevating the performance of stretch to the next level and unleashing the newest generation of denim fabrics that conform, slim and shape but with unbelievable power and comfort.”

Cone Denim’s innovative dual-core stretch and recovery SGene technology was originally introduced in denim fabrics in 2007, creating a new global standard for stretch denim. The technology was patented in 2012. Level II SGene takes the evolution of stretch to the next level using yarns that contain spandex and filament polyester covered with cotton providing a soft cotton hand and appearance.

“We spin our dual-core yarn in-house to high quality standards,” says Allen Little, director of product development for Cone Denim. “Every element of the Level II SGene technology is engineered for maximum quality and performance, and the filament component is designed and produced specifically for SGene Yarns. To create these patented yarns, we insert the spandex component using a method that maximizes recovery and optimizes stretch, which is then wrapped in a cotton covering and spun to provide a soft cotton hand and natural appearance.”
