The Nilit ATS nylon 6.6 yarn collection includes Nilit Semi Dull and Full Dull, Nilit Arafelle and Nilit Duelle to create color effects, Nilit Aquarius with moisture management, Nilit Breeze for cooling plus UV protection, Nilit Heat for thermal insulation and Nilit Bodyfresh with antimicrobial protection.
The Nilit Air Textured Soft collection uses special air-jet texturing to make the nylon yarns extra soft, as well as stronger, faster drying and more durable with longer-lasting suppleness.
Pierluigi Berardi, global marketing director for Nilit, said, designers will appreciate “the light and airy softness of these beautiful yarns, as well as the fashion and performance enhancements they can add to legwear, intimates, activewear and ready-to-wear apparel.”
