Nylstar, an European textile company, has introduced new Meryl recycled yarns as part of its global strategy to provide circular economy solutions. Meryl yarn can now be produced with global recycled standard (GRS) certification using Invista recycled nylon 6.6 polymer. With 50 per cent or more recycled content, yarn will retain the world-renowned quality.
 
Invista sources post-industrial nylon 6.6 material from its plant in Kingston, Canada, where fibres for airbags and carpets are produced.  Through its proprietary process, Invista converts post-industrial fibre waste to pellet form and supplies it to Nylstar for spinning, enabling some of the world’s top fashion houses to deliver sustainable garments to the market. “We, through our research centre for advanced recycled materials, are the first to commercialise these recycled materials for use in fine denier yarns for the athleisure market,” Alfonso Cirera, CEO and president of Nylstar, said in a press release.
 
Recycled Meryl yarns are available with additional sustainability solutions, including dope-dye colours, solvent and silicone-free, zero microplastic pollution, and natural stretch without elastane. These yarn technologies were born from Nylstar's commitment to reduce or eliminate the use of water, energy, and chemicals while promoting 100 per cent recyclability in garment production.  Nylstar is also currently working with retailers to rapidly develop collection and processing infrastructure to promote post-consumer recycling of garments made with Meryl yarns.
 
“Nylstar has the knowledge and technology to convert recycled polymer into specialty yarns. This is an exciting example of a win-win solution and preferred customer relationship that promotes environmental stewardship while delivering high quality products to the fashion industry.” Mark Delaplane, vice president of product line strategy at Invista said. 
 
“Thanks to our work with Invista, we can now offer our brand partners a new way to transition to closed-loop solutions without compromising the performance, hand-feel and durability consumers expect from Meryl yarns,” Cirera said.
