Optimer Performance adds E.C.O. options in Dri-release

Feb '08
Optimer Performance Fibers has recently added a new member to its ever growing Dri-release portfolio – Dri-release E.C.O., [Environmentally Correct Origins].

As more brands add 'green' products to their ranges, it was considered vital that Dri-release was able to offer a totally sustainable, eco-friendly yarn. Optimer first began work on perfecting the yarn in 2006. The new environmentally friendly technology is an intimate blend of 85% recycled polyester and 15% organic cotton.

Other Dri-release E.C.O. options soon to be added include recycled polyester paired with wool, SeaCell, soy or bamboo. “Our patent allows us the latitude to use many types of natural and synthetic fibre combinations,” says Karen Deniz, Optimer's managing director of marketing.

“No matter what type of hand, weight or other features a customer requires in a Dri-release fabric, we will be able to accommodate them with a green version that has the same high performance moisture management as all of our Dri-release products. We're excited to finally be able to offer these new earth-friendly options.”

Dri-release, a patented, intimate blend of synthetic and natural fibres that accelerates the water release rate of wet fabric is set apart from its moisture management competitors because of its faster drying time, next-to-skin comfort and the aesthetics imparted by its natural fibre component.

Dri-release E.C.O. also contains FreshGuard, a built-in odour neutraliser that won't wash out. FreshGuard is built into the Dri-release yarn without harmful chemicals and virtually eliminates odour. FreshGuard is not a topical finish or antimicrobial. It's friendly to the environment and maintains the natural balance of the skin.
