Features of VORTEX yarns.

The structure of VORTEX yarn optimizes the inherent characteristics of its base material. Features of VORTEX yarn are introduced.

Feature

Resistance to pilling

See the feature of resistance to pilling.

On the casual fashion market, the reduction of pilling has been a significant challenge. Since it has naturally less hairiness, VORTEX remarkably reduces pilling, and has created new markets.
Pilling is a phenomenon where fibers are twisted into ball-like structures by friction between the surface of a fabric and another fabric or object. Because VORTEX has less long hairs and is naturally stable due to its structure, the fibers are secure from movement resulting in reduced pilling.

VORTEX inhibits generation of pilling better than yarns from any other spinning system.
