The ongoing trend for lighter weight qualities teamed with a natural touch continues to push a hybrid direction on the ready-to-wear front, with creora® spandex/elastane providing the fit and comfort these new qualities require. Surface fabrics range from compact and smooth through to irregular textures derived from an organic inspiration.

The synergy of this direction of natural, man-made and synthetic yarns is further enhanced through the inclusion of creora® spandex/elastane, specifically creora® eco-soft, the low heat settable spandex/ elastane that works exceptionally well with the cellulosic fibers, resulting in a continuing soft hand feel. Featherweight knits get finer in construction, given stability, stretch and recovery from the content of creora®. The overall mood of this direction is gentle and soft, applied to comfort applications through to high power stretch qualities.
