What the experts found
We asked scientists from the textile testing laboratory at agresearch to put nuyarn to the test. the results show nuyarn is a high performer too.
Because Nuyarn has no twists, fabrics feel more comfortable on the skin. Nuyarn creates lower density, loftier fabrics, which means a lighter weight garment behaves like a heavier one.
Nuyarn provides a better fit, as garments tend to shape themselves to the body’s contours. Because Nuyarn fabrics show lower spirality, they also retain their shape, even after washing. The result is clothing that looks as comfortable as it feels.
Dries 5 x Faster
The interior of Nuyarn fibre absorbs and desorbs a large amount of moisture vapour without feeling wet. This results in garments with improved breatheability and comfort.
Nuyarn produces loftier, yet lighter fabrics, with up to 35% more thermal resistance. Insulating air in the garment is protected by a 53% increase in wind resistance, making Nuyarn ideal for performance fabrics where warmth and weight really matter.
Nuyarn’s burst strength improvements allow fabrics to be much more durable and resistant to abrasion. This makes it the perfect choice for performance clothing, which is often subjected to constant movement and hard wear in testing conditions.
120% Tougher Seams
Even the lightest Nuyarn fabrics have around double the strength of their traditional equivalents in both directions. This huge improvement in seam strength does not disappear in the wash, so your garments will continue to perform at their best.
The IANZ accredited Textile Testing Laboratory at AgResearch (formerly Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand) is highly recognised internationally for its quality scientific and industrial research.
The comparative research conducted by AgResearch produced results that confirm Nuyarn has the technology to take existing raw materials and improve them, like never before.
Tests were conducted using like for like 100% Nuyarn Merino vs. 100% conventional ring spun merino fabrics.
