LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology

LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology logo

LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology imparts to jeans a uniquely soft and easy stretch that will delight consumers. The technology is based upon proprietary yarn and fabric constructions that enable the production of stretch denim with a much lower compression force than normal stretch denim.

Jeans with LYCRA® FREEFIT® technology offer reduced constriction, more freedom to move, and a wider fit window.

LYCRA® FREEFIT® technology for denim offers these benefits:

  • Mid-to-high stretch with high recovery and relatively low compression force.
  • Low fabric growth and wash shrinkage.
  • Natural denim look and feel.
  • No heat-setting required.
  • No new capital investment required: only processing adjustments.
