Features of VORTEX yarns.

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

Feature

Wash resistance

See the feature of wash resistance.

When subjected to repeated wash and dry cycles, VORTEX fabrics produce the least lint of any staple spinning system. This is one of VORTEX’s advantages not seen in other staple yarn systems, and results from low yarn hairiness and a structure in which each fiber is held securely in the yarn center. For the same reason, VORTEX is also resistant to fabric deformation and color fading from repeated wash/dry cycles. This is just one of the "value-added" features of VORTEX.

Wash resistance is one of the VORTEX's great merits

VORTEX reduces issues due to linting.

Reduced lint shedding

Compared to a ring spun yarn towel, a VORTEX spun towel has lower lint shedding in laundering, thus retaining the towel bulk better than the ring spun.
