The new Nordic research and hosiery brands like Dear Denier and Swedish Stockings, have chosen Fulgar’s Q-NOVA regenerated nylon 6.6 for its eco-sustainable products, with innovation and sustainability. Fulgar a leader from the manmade fibre market, manufacturing, and distributing polyamide 6,6 and covered elastomers for the technical and textile sectors.

“Members of the new generations are increasingly demanding high-performance garments in terms of comfort, well-being and interactivity with electronic devices. At the same time, issues like eco-sustainability of the yarns, biodegradability, the use of recoverable raw materials and non-toxic dyestuffs are now fundamental elements in our consumers’ choices. As a result, innovation that aims to improve fabric performance and eco-sustainability is the core strategy on which Italian manufacturers should focus their resources if they are to remain successful in the competitive framework that lies just around the corner,” Alessandro Gallesi, president of the ADICI (Hosiery and Intimate Wear District Association) of Castel Goffredo said in a Fulgar press release.

Operating in the development of new-conception man-made fibres, Fulgar has extensive experience in research and innovation, combined with a commitment to sustainability. This is made clear by the constantly-expanding green portfolio that now boasts - EVO, a bio-based yarn derived from castor oil, Q-NOVA fibre made from regenerated raw materials and AMNI SOUL ECO, a biodegradable polyamide.

Launched five years ago, Q-NOVA was the first speciality by Fulgar, whose development was based on green issues. This eco-sustainable yarn makes production processes more sustainable in their turn, enabling reductions in CO2 emissions and cuts in water use. Q-NOVA is obtained exclusively from regenerated raw materials through a mechanical process that does not involve the use of any chemicals that could compromise the final product’s sustainability.

The growing number of consumers seeking hosiery products that are not only fashionable and high-performance but also ethical and above all eco-sustainable, has persuaded the Danish brand Dear Denier and the Swedish brand Swedish Stockings to choose the recycled Q-NOVA by Fulgar yarn for their new collections.

Dear Denier offers tights and stockings with a clean, essential design that also provide new-conception hi-tech benefits while ensuring eco-sustainability. Dear Denier uses Q-NOVA yarn for its Eco ERICA and LÆRKE lines and the new TINE and PETRINA fantasy collections. Swedish Stockings has chosen Fulgar’s recycled yarn for all its collections, from its Edith Lace, Frida Lace, Irma, and Stina Premium tights to its Liv Net and Rut Net knee-highs and Ida liner socks.

Moreover, in, March 2019, Swedish Stockings will launch the world’s first fully recycled pantyhose line – with 100 per cent recycled yarn – like the Maria model made with Q-NOVA. (GK)
