ATLANTA — Unifi, Inc. has partnered with Burlington Worldwide and United Knitting for the development of woven and knit fabrics using Repreve nylon 6,6, which Unifi will introduce at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market.
Repreve nylon is the first recycled nylon 6,6 yarn suitable for apparel applications. Like Unifi’s Repreve polyester, it is made from 100 percent recycled materials and offsets the need to produce virgin nylon (or polyester), thus conserving petroleum-based resources.
