Novelty, Textured, Man Manufactured Yarns

Other than yarns made of animal wool, plant fibers (cotton, linen (flax), rayon and viscose, etc.), bast fibers (hemp, banana fiber, soy silk) and silk itself, there is a category of man-made, synthetically manufactured fibers such as acrylic (Dralon®, Courtelle®, etc.), nylon, olefin, polyester, polyamide, acetate, anidex, aramid, azlon, elastoester, glass, lyocell, melamine, metallic, modacrylic, nytril, olefin, PBI, PEN, PLA, polypropylene, saran, spandex (lycra), chlorofiber, sulfar, triacetate, vinal, vinyon, and many, many others, inlcuding fibers produced by bacteria, high-tech fibers, super-function and super-natural fiber materials, etc. Many man-made fibers and yarns are created from petroleum by-products using so called nanotechnology.

Usually, a yarn is considered as novelty if it has an interesting texture, or other special features that distinguish it from regular plied yarns. The most commmon types of novelty yarns are bouclé, eyelash, fleece-effect, flammé, different kinds of ribbons and tapes, etc., and yarns with mixed texture, in which a few stylish, different textured strands are mixed into one yarn.
"In the 1930s, as technology advanced, humans learned how to create their own fiber. Since the 1950s, many superlatived advances in synthetic fibers have been achieved, and the availability of these man-made fibers has outstripped the natural ones." - For more information please refer to FiberSource.com

"In the past, priority was given to the efficient mass production, but now and in the future, more attention must be given to the quality of people's life." - Reference: New Fibers, Tatsuya Hongo & Glin O. Phillips

Though our specialization is Yarns made of Natural fibers, we support a small inventory of textured and petroleum-free man-made yarns. It is hard to resist the beauty of mankind's genius.

Known facts: Nowadays, only overly impressionable people will be touched by reading the yarn label: banana silk, milk protein, seaweed, dog hair (chiengora), etc. But now, we can even try a yarn made of old newspapers! It was created by Greetje van Tiem in 2007: www.dezeen.com.
