Kucukcalik Textile group’s yarn brand, KFS, has produced a new sustainable yarn, KFS-Comfy K-200 Eco Made. The new yarn is manufactured with KFS’s high-performing spinning technology using recycled polyester materials from discarded PET bottles and Dupont Sorona polymer, which is comprised of 37 per cent renewable plant-based ingredients.

The KFS-Comfy K-200 Eco Made material maintains the high-performance benefits of the KFS’s Comfy K-200 yarn – stretch, recovery, softness, and chlorine resistance – with the added benefit of enhanced sustainability, said Küçükçalik in a press release. Comparable to spandex, the high-performance yarn has outstanding elasticity and stretch, but with improved recovery – even after repeated uses and washing. Fabrics made with KFS-Comfy K-200 yarns feature high performance benefits such as easy care, softness, vivid colour, chlorine resistance, and good moisture management, keeping wearers cool and dry.

Küçükçalik Textile group’s yarn brand KFS is recognised as one of the most innovative filament yarn suppliers in Turkey and abroad, with its latest technology production lines. KFS focuses its attentions on functional-featured and innovative yarn-making technologies through its POY spinning, FDY spinning, bi-component production lines and mother-yarn spinning machines using specialty polymers. KFS-manufactured yarns are used to make everything from home textiles (upholstery fabrics, curtains, carpets, blankets, etc.) to garments (skirts, shirts, t-shirts, suits, active wear, underwear, etc.) and are suitable for other technical applications from automotive-industry to outdoor textiles.
