Unitin Debuts New Yarn for Seamless Denim

COVID-19 recovery is on the horizon but the pandemic's impact on sustainability, retail, product development and consumer buying patterns means the denim industry must evolve. Join Rivet on April 20th at 11 am ET for the COVID, One Year Later roundtable.

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.
