The Emperor's New Clothes comprising Nilit's Flat 6/4 yarn
Jul '10
NILIT, a global leader in the production of nylon 6.6,– announced that the new, lightest weight-ever fabric from Everest Textile Co., is based on NILIT 's Flat 6/4 yarn. Everest, an R&D-oriented and vertically integrated textile manufacturer, recently launched its Ever Ultra Light Weight 5 denier fabric, which it proclaims is “the lightest and finest fabric in the world”. Debuted in February at the ISPO and PV exhibitions, this new fabric has already attracted widespread attention and inquiries.

In part due to global warming, light and thin fabrics have become a very strong apparel trend. To fill this demand, Everest has invested in researching and developing ultra-lightweight fabrics. This new product, Ever Ultra Light Weight 5 denier, has been nicknamed “The Emperor's New Clothes,” highlighting its extreme light weight – as it feels as if nothing is being worn.

Furthermore, Ever Ultra Light is cleverly armed with windproof light rain resistance, high abrasion, high tearing strength (max. 900g) and easy-pack functionality. Ever Ultra Light is perfect for sports and causal wear such as running clothes, cycling jackets, mountain climbing down coats and even sleeping bags and tents.

"Ever Ultra Light is a great example of an ingenious fabric using NILIT yarns," commented Gilad Frenkel, Sales & Marketing Manager at NILIT. "The winning combination of Everest's innovative R&D capabilities and the superior quality of NILIT yarns opens endless possibilities for fabrics with unique and practical properties."

Based on the Everest Sustainability Model (ESM), Everest is aggressively practicing the concept of "less is more" in R&D and production processes. Thomas Chiu, R&D engineer for Everest, explains: "Ever Ultra Light not only answers consumers' demands for comfortable, lightweight clothing but also for ecological products since its light weight effectively reduces energy usage and waste emissions in production."

Ever Ultra Light represents one of Everest's most important achievements. Light as a feather, silky smooth to the touch and packable, Ever Ultra Light is a trendy and convenient choice for modern clothing.
