PrimaLoft Debuts Cotton Blend Yarn
July 7, 2008,
Known more for its down alternative fills, PrimaLoft has introduced PrimaLoft Cotton Blend, a luxury yarn developed for blankets and home accessories.
PrimaLoft Cotton Blend is a mix of 50% PrimaLoft microfiber and 50% cotton; the combination, said Comer, enabled the company "to create a luxurious yarn that provides softness, comfort and durability."
PrimaLoft is made from ultra-fine fibers that are softer and finer than silk. When added to cotton, these fibers enhance the feel of the yarn and give it a luxurious sheen. It also makes for an easy-care fabric, machine-washable and –dryable, drying faster than 100% cotton goods.
The new yarn has been adopted by WestPoint Home for use in manufacturing blankets, said PrimaLoft, which is a division of Albany International Corp.
