LYCRA fiber with W Technology has a package of enhancements that improves visual and physical fabric uniformity with an optimized luster, color-blending, and new proprietary spinning technology. This new level of performance in elastane fibers is designed to offer improved whiteness retention, uniformity, brilliant color clarity and better molding for fabrics and garments in intimate apparel.
“Over the years the LYCRA fiber brand has delivered multiple breakthroughs in the apparel industry. LYCRA fiber with W Technology is our latest solution that provides our customers with a better starting point in garment-making. We are proud to be providing this new technology to our customers as we continue to push the needle forward in the apparel industry,” said, Bob Kirkwood, Executive Vice President Marketing & Technology
The new technology will provide a robust enhancement for both warp and circular knit fabrics and will enable greater coloration and styling flexibility without changing fabric properties, thus providing garment designers with the increased confidence that both whites and fashion colours will be bright, long-lasting, and true.

"Not only does this fiber set a new standard for performance excellence in whites, but it also provides a new level of color-blending with nylon companion yarns to enable richer and clearer fashion colors. This technology package incorporates new spinning technology and proprietary dye-pickup technology that enables the fiber to become the invisible secret that delivers truly visible improvements for today’s intimate apparel." he added.
