LYCRA® T178C Fiber
LYCRA® T178C fiber has been specially developed for apparel applications that require greater steam-settability than standard elastane. Legwear made with covered LYCRA® T178C fiber can be steam-boarded to shape for an aesthetically pleasing layout.
Covered LYCRA® T178C fiber is recommended for sheer hosiery and as a plating yarn for socks. It is the preferred fiber for producing hosiery in which LYCRA® fiber is knit into every course. When used as a stretch yarn for sock bodies, the efficient boarding performance of LYCRA® T178C fiber produces garments that are sized convincingly for enhanced counter appeal.
