Unifi Inc is launching its Repreve nylon 6,6 yarn, which is made from recycled materials, to the Chinese market later this month. 

Repreve nylon will be available through Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co Ltd (UTSC), the company's new China-based subsidiary, and can be used for a number of product applications including apparel and hosiery.

"With the product availability in Asia, this will further allow us to consistently supply high quality 100% recycled products wherever our customers choose to do business," said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi.
