Capitalizing on the unwavering demand for athleisure denim, indigo yarn specialist Unitin is offering a new yarn for seamless technology and circular knitting.

The yarn (Ne 30/1 Compact Cotton “S Torision” Indigo 11) made its debut at Munich Fabric Start’s show last August, as part of the DEN/IM collaboration with Santoni, Lenzing and Tonello. The concept, developed by Santoni, is composed of body hugging, comfortable and athletic denim items, highlighting innovative knit denim as a counter-point to the traditional woven denim fabric.

“Having previously worked with Unitin indigo yarns on a flat-bed knit project and knowing the innovative garment processing developments Tonello have brought to the market, the decision to work on such a project was an easy one,” said Michael Kininmonth, Lenzing business development manager.

The new yarn is available as standard dark indigo, or lighter shades and blue-black upon order.
