Yarn maker Unifi Inc has expanded the range of Repreve recycled products available in Asia with the launch of polyester staple fibre made from 100% recycled materials for use in spun yarns.

The fibres are supplied through its wholly-owned subsidiary based in Suzhou, China, called Unifi Textiles Suzhou Co Ltd (UTSC).

The Repreve line-up now includes recycled staple polyester, recycled filament polyester, recycled filament nylon 6.6, and recycled performance fibres.

The company has also launched a verification program to ensure fabrics and products made from Repreve are traceable, transparent and certifiably sustainable. 

As part of this 'U Trust' program, a traceability technology called Fiberprint can analyse fabrics to certify the level of Repreve content.
