MT. PLEASANT, NC — Tuscarora Yarns has launched its patented "Five Star Brand" process for manufacturing yarn that creates smooth, intimately blended combed cotton heather fabrics.

The process, according to Martin Foil Jr., chairman and ceo, produces a yarn that is silkier with high sheen, better touch, evenness and strength.

The process also offers more consistent fabric color and higher-quality fabrics at competitive prices with existing market products, according to the company.
