FiberVisions' latest innovation, CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene (PP) has a sustainable profile with a cool and silky hand. FiberVisions' new innovative polypropylene fibre works well with all complementary fibres and dyes easily in fabric form unlike the earlier versions of polypropylene fibre, which were limited by the necessity to solution dye at the spinning source.

CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene fibres are soft, provides excellent insulation and are amongst the lightest of all commercial fibres. The carbon footprint of the CoolVisions polymer is the lowest of all synthetic fibres, the company said in a press release.

“We're seeing significant interest in CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene fibre for year-round, lifestyle apparel. With its inherent softness, easy dyeability, and performance attributes, it engenders the perfect fusion of smart fashion and function for urban dwellers, commuters, business travellers, and outdoor enthusiasts,” explained Susan Lynn, CoolVisions global marketing manager.

CoolVisions outperforms all other fibres when it comes to moisture management, moving moisture and drying quickly, to keep the wearer dry and comfortable. In addition, CoolVisions polypropylene is durable, abrasion resistant, and resists stains and bleach.

Taiwanese weaver HerMin has selected CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene staple fibre for its colourful spring patterns. “The key trend we are highlighting is urban fashion, merging fashion and light function with the newest yarn and finishing applications. CoolVisions polypropylene is ideal for sustainable, light weight fabrics and blends beautifully with various yarns. We blend CoolVisions with cotton, TransDRY cotton, and nylon,” said HerMin. (NA)
