South Korean fibre giant Hyosung will use the upcoming Intertextile Shanghai show to present an updated collection of its Regen recycled nylon and polyester fibres.

Hyosung says all its recycled yarns offer the same performance levels as the standard products and help brands and retailers to meet consumer demand for sustainable and eco-aware clothing.

"At Hyosung we anticipate changing market dynamics and we continue to develop leading sustainable solutions, such as Creora eco-soft spandex, which not only contributes energy saving for sustainability with low heat setting features but also enables stable production of four-way stretch wovens," says Mike Simko, global marketing director for Hyosung. "We are showing the first innovations in recycled spandex with Creora Regen so do come and see us."

Mipan Regen Aqua X Nylon and Regen Askin polyester are cooling fibres that deliver freshness with a cool touch effect to fashion and sportswear fabrics. Hyosung's Cotna fibre is a natural touch polyester that it says has excellent pilling performance as well as good wicking and shape retention properties.

"Regen Aerolight polyester is suitable for all seasons, combining the advantages of both synthetic and natural fibres," says Mike Simko. "With a C-shaped cross section it provides excellent moisture management, with a softer, more natural feel than standard polyester."

At the trade show Hyosung is also focusing on Creora Color+, a spandex that delivers rich and vivid colours.
