Lycra Co develops Dual Comfort tech for ready-to-wear

The Lycra Company has developed a dual comfort technology for ready-to-wear (RTW) and wovens, which it says offers sustainable benefits.

By Michelle Russell

The Dual Comfort technology from Lycra is the company’s latest innovation to help transform the garment category by providing functional performance benefits with the sustainable features today’s consumers desire.

Lycra Dual Comfort combines stretch and cooling comfort with long-lasting shape retention. The key to the technology is the new Lycra T400 A EcoMade fibre. Created with a proprietary process, the new fibre delivers the texture and appearance of a spun yarn, offering low-impact, comfortable and versatile garments with thermal comfort.

Lycra lists the key benefits os Lycra Dual Comfort technology as:

  • All-day comfort: Garments move with the wearer and hold their shape throughout the day
  • Cooling comfort: Helps keep the wearer cool and dry
  • Sustainability: Lycra T400 A EcoMade fibre contains both recycled and renewable content for reduced impact versus virgin fibres

The Lycra Company and 3D digital solutions firm Browzwear recently partnered to improve and speed up the design process.  The partnership is the latest element of a multifaceted digital transformation that The Lycra Company began last year with the launch of the Lycra One customer portal – an online marketplace connecting brands, retailers, and garment makers to a global network of partner mills in a virtual capacity.
