||Cellulose acetate is a man made fibre of natural origin with specific characteristics
which allow the production of beautiful, practical and comfortable fabrics, whether
used on its own or mixed with other natural, artificial or synthetic yarn or fibres.
Among others, acetate yarns
give to their fabrics the following characteristics:
- Natural luxury
- Silky feel
- Elegant drape
- Colour fastness and brightness
- Cross dyeing capacity
- Dimensional stability
Acetate yarns were first to be used by the textile industry in the early 20's.
Since then, acetate yarns have enjoyed a growth in all the fashion sectors.
Today acetate yarns continue to play an important role both in weaving and knitting.
The characteristics of acetate yarns make it possible to meet the requirements
of mass production items, such as linings, as well as the production on exclusive
fabrics in the more demanding markets of "niche" products.
