Ganga Acrowools Limited, India’s leading manufacturer of worsted acrylic and blended yarns and exporter of hand knitting yarns, has launched its Soft n Strong yarn range, made with Pilbloc fibre. Pilbloc is a flagship anti-pilling fibre brand of Thai Acrylic Fibre Co (TAF), Aditya Birla Group, that has excellent pilling resistance and super soft hand-feel.

The Soft n Strong range is launched under Ganga’s Knitting Happiness theme and the yarns are available in a wide range of classic shades.

“We are pleased to launch Soft n Strong hand knitting and crocheting made with Pilbloc into one of our ranges. Our revolutionary antipilling yarn allows knitters and crochetiers to create fun homemade yarn projects without any pilling frustration and we are excited to be part of their satisfactory experiences. We are constantly looking for the newest and latest innovations to meet our customers’ needs and enhance their daily activities,” Dr Ravinder Verma, managing director, Ganga Acrowools Limited, said in a statement.

“More people are becoming active knitters/crochetiers, and the trend is rapidly growing with a large number of people trying their hands on knitting/crocheting homemade crafts - we are happy to see Pilbloc being developed into Soft N Strong yarn range. We are confident that this range will also be introduced to first-time knitters and crochetiers to explore their creativities and have great experiences with their crafty homemade projects,” said Thomas Varghese, business head, textiles business, Aditya Birla Group.

Pilbloc, one of TAF’s specialty products, is an anti-pilling fibre with engineering process, which is formulated to resist pilling over time, resulting in decelerating the ageing process of the apparel. It is also similar in comfort to natural fibres with unique hand-feel. It can also easily be blended with other fibres and have the pill performance enhanced.
