Wykes International Ltd, a UK-based composite yarn manufacturer has come up with – BILOREX 7338 yarn and SPINAREX yarn production method, to aid production of stretch knitwear.

The company has launched BILOREX 7338, an 'invisible' low power plating support yarn which is expected to provide great shape retention power and steadiness even after multiple washes.

The new yarn, BILOREX 7338, is just 30 denier in count, which makes it almost invisible while using. It, thus, removes the requirement of dyes to match various shades, and thus results in reduced waste generation with no residues.

Besides, with this new yarn it is even possible to produce light-weight fabrics. Also, it bestows the fabric with great shape retention power and stability even after multiple washes.

It is possible to dye this yarn as well as garments produced from it at 100°C. The dye to be used is also available in China.

Besides, the garment to garment variability ratio for the clothes manufactured while using fabric made from BILOREX 7338 yarn is significantly low.

Wykes International has also patented SPINAREX - a new technique of production for producing stretch knitting yarns which churn out fabrics having same technical features as BILOREX 7338. Commercial availability of this yarn is presently facilitated in cotton and blends from Texwinka – Nice Dyeing and Sudwolle and Biella yarns in merino and merino blends.

While carrying out production of seamless knitwear, speed of knitting machines can be accelerated by around 40 percent. SPINAREX technology has opened up new markets for stretch knitwear in intarsia, jacquard and pointelle patterns.

Further, as SPINAREX facilitates single product buying, it results in reduced waste. Also, ecru composite yarn can be used to yarn dye and can even be knitted ecru and garment dyed.

Introduction of BILOREX yarns and SPINAREX technique have annulled the need for dyeing the face and plating yarn separately and results in a considerable fall in the water and energy utilization levels, thus resulting in a drop in emission of inevitable effluents from yarn residue.

The two new evolutions have already been launched by Wykes in the market and are expected to go a long way in stretch knitwear production.
