LYCRA® HYBRID technology

HYBRID technology by LYCRA® brand

Fabrics made with LYCRA® HYBRID technology use patented and patent pending constructions that combine the authentic look of a woven denim fabric with the comfortable fit and freedom of a knit. They offer a high degree of multidirectional stretch with low growth and low shrinkage.

Fabrics with LYCRA® HYBRID technology can be engineered for jeans having a variety of end-uses:

  • Shaping jeans that feature a high-level of stretch and recovery with low normalized hysteresis. They are tested against quality standards that are based on scientifically determined metrics that characterize both shaping performance and comfort.
  • Athleisurewear that provides just the right balance of freedom and support. Because they look and feel great, these jeans can go wherever your active lifestyle takes you.
  • Everyday denim fabrics that provide exceptional comfort, fit and freedom of movement so that consumers can go about their daily activities while looking and feeling great.

Denim fabrics with LYCRA® HYBRID technology are made using INVISTA patent pending constructions that combine the look of woven denim with the comfortable fit and freedom of a knit. Fabrics can be engineered for use in a range of different garment types to serve as shaping jeans, athleisurewear, or everyday jeans.
