LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology

LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology logo

Knit and woven fabrics made with LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology are lightweight and breathable with low LYCRA® fiber content, low shrinkage, and a natural, cottony hand. The LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology performance standards may be met with either cotton blend constructions or with all-synthetic (polyester or nylon) knit fabrics.

For men’s and women’s underwear, circular-knit fabrics with LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology provide the right properties for lightweight, superb-fitting, ultra-comfortable underwear made from natural fibers, as well as fully synthetic blends such as polyester and nylon. Fabrics typically contain 3 to 12% of low-dtex LYCRA® fiber. The LYCRA Company has developed a special quality standard and test method to ensure that fabrics, particularly cotton underwear, have just the right amount stretch and recovery.
