 Product & Fabric Comments

  • Preferably use over 50% of LITRAX-5 ALPINE yarn in fabrics to preserve its effectiveness, preferably 80-100% at the skin side.

  • If possible do not combine LITRAX-5 ALPINE with Polyester at same side as it leads to a loss of functional effectiveness.

  • Nylon or rayon-based (viscose) yarns are best choices when combining with LITRAX-5 ALPINE yarn.

  • When weaving yarn, relax the pulling power, don't use too much yarn oil.

  • The composition of fabric from round weaving:
    Generally suggested garments with LITRAX-5 ALPINE are 
    - polo shirts
    - moisture absorbing and quick dry shirts
    - also bird-eye and pique (PK) will give good results because bird-eye and PK have holes for convection. For now, there are no trials in using LITRAX-5 ALPINE for woven applications.

  • Recommended composition percentages:
    If you can use 100% LITRAX-5 yarn for one side, that is the best choice we can recommend. Make sure, LITRAX-5 can touch the skin. If you want to make polo shirts, we suggest outside either LITRAX-8 active carbon rayon-polyester blended yarn
    (containing pyrolized LITRAX L8 active carbon composites for quick dry and sweat work out) in Ne30 or Ne40 quality, or LITRAX-8 filament yarn.

  • Composition of a moisture absorbing shirt:
    You may use the moisture absorbing polyester-based yarn LITRAX L8 active carbon with 150D or 100D at the outside, and on the inside a standard LITRAX-5 70D/48F filament yarn.

  • Possible composition in woven fabrics:
    Normally, woven is plain, we suggest to use LITRAX-8 rayon-polyester blended LITRAX L8 active carbon yarn, Ne30 on the outside, and a LITRAX-8 polyester 150D or 75D moisture absorbing yarn interwoven with LITRAX-5 70D/48F on the inside.
