Lycra® Fiber

LYCRA° fiber is a man-made elastane fiber. It has unique stretch and recovery properties that add comfort fit shape retention, durability and freedom of movement. This is achieved thanks to the unique properties of the fiber which can be stretched up to seven times its initial length before springing back to the original position once tension is released

Many natural or man-made fibers can be mixed with LYCRA® fiber and very small amounts of LYCRA’ fiber can transform the performance of a fabric – as hale as 2% LYCRA® fiber content can improve fabric performance. There are various ways of integrating LYCRA® fiber with other fibers to provide fabrics for all needs.

A fabric ingredient and not a fabric itself, the fact that the LYCRA® fiber brand is well known throughout the world bears testament to The LYCRA Company marketing efforts. The LYCRA® fiber brand boasts the global consumer awareness of 88%.
