Monocel displays unique yarns at Filo
Monocel, developers of a range of eco-smart natural plant dyed yarns, displayed Monocel yarns showing how natural yarns can represent the next generation of smart cellulosic yarns, at the 46th edition of Filo, international yarns exhibition, held recently in Milan, Italy.
Monocel is the first of a new generation of smart and responsible yarn qualities that are driven by a true, natural Nordic taste for pure and clean aesthetics. These developments represent a new option in eco-responsible yarns, with a unique colour range delivered through an Ultrasonic Natural Plant Dyed process. It is derived from natural, abundant, and rapidly renewable resources, manufactured with transparency and commitment to environmental and socially responsible ethics. Monocel yarns are the only commercial lyocell-from-bamboo products being offered to partners today.
Monocel Ultrasonic Plant Dyed yarns are a revolutionary family of high tech top dyed yarns. They combine the latest advanced dyeing technology with ancient coloration materials. The patented process uses liquid plant dyes in the new ultrasonic 'attachment' technique for a high level of colour fastness, with encouraging improved efficiencies in energy and emissions reductions through lower temperatures and shorter dyeing times.
