Beyond Elastane: DuPont™ Sorona® Comfort Stretch for long-lasting recovery performance

The next big thing in stretch! Replace elastane (or spandex) with Sorona® stretch fibers to achieve long-lasting, mechanical stretch and excellent recovery with a better-for-the-planet profile. Unlike elastane, stretch from Sorona® doesn't breakdown overtime, with heat, washing, UV rays, or chlorine exposure meaning clothes continue to look, feel, and perform great each time you wear them. Sorona® is also dyable and recyclable in any normal polyester recycling stream. Join this workshop to learn more about mechanical stretch and feel some samples for yourself!
