REGENERATED ECONYL® YARN
Schoeller textiles manufactured with ECONYL® yarn, an Aquafil S.P.A. property, are genuinely
upcycled from regenerated waste material. The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program reduces the
worldwide quantity of waste by collecting regenerable material from waste disposal sites, as well as
ocean water and reintroducing it into the production cycle. The resulting yarn in no way differs in
quality and performances from conventional textiles. The Schoeller ECONYL® fabric family
encompasses a complete package with diverse, exciting qualities such as ultra-light, bi-elastic
schoeller®-dynamic (e.g., for windbreakers), very soft, fine schoeller®-dryskin (e.g., for high-tech
sports) and a variety of light schoeller®-WB-400 weights.
Depending upon the requirements, these softshells are available with various natural fiber backings
or as a doubleface with smooth, color-contrasting reverse in ECONYL® yarn. The special feature of
this softshell is its complete sustainability; even the bio foam in the center is based on renewable
raw materials. Water repellence is ensured by the new fluorocarbon-free ecorepel® Bio technology,
also based on renewable raw materials. Outstanding wind and weather protection is provided by the
two-layer schoeller®-WB formula with climate-regulating c_change® membrane.
Alongside sustainable fabrics and technologies, summer 2019 is dominated by multi colors. The
highly-elastic, polychrome schoeller®-dryskin qualities produce completely new color effects and a
cheerful mood. From lush shades of green to blue nuances and burnt henna and violet variations, a
kaleidoscope of exciting effects and color combinations emerges. Always appearing with a contrast
color on the reverse, it presents itself as a genuine eye-catcher which also impresses with its
Outstanding wind and weather protection is offered by the super-light, elastic 2.5 layer laminates
from the e3+-product line. They are ideal for cycling and outdoor jackets which fold up compactly
and are water vapor permeable and suitable for taping. The polyester knitted fabrics are available in
neon yellow or white (for printing) with a light membrane, or in black with a dark membrane.
Permanent ceramic dots keep the fabric comfortably away from the skin and protect the membrane
which, consequently no longer needs to be lined. Always with contrasting reverse, either smooth or
structured, they can create a technical 3D impression or a clean sporty look, depending on the
backing. For example, designed as an all-season jacket or oversized parka, a light membrane
ensures an extremely high level of breathability with reliable waterproofing.
