Lenzing Modal Color - Developed by Lenzing, the Australian fiber producer, Lenzing Modal Color is colored Modal® fibers that are available in the spun-dyed shades of black, red, blue, brown, and beige. A wider range of shades can be achieved through cross-dyeing. Using solution dyed colors with the colored pigments permanently impregnated into the fiber, Lenzing reduces the amount of energy and water required by traditional piece or yarn dyeing processes. Lenzing Modal Color is also more colorfast.
  Lenzing Modal® - This high wet modulus fiber is particularly well suited to blends with cotton since both fibers have similar properties. In particular, the dyeing performance of Lenzing Modal® emulates that of cotton. Naturalness plays a key role in Lenzing Modal®. The fiber is made from beech wood, a natural raw material. The pulp used for fiber production is made by Lenzing to guarantee consistent and reliable quality. The natural softener makes Modal fabrics pleasant to the touch even after repeated washing. Hardening of the rayon fabric, which occurs as a result of limestone deposits and traces of detergent, becomes a thing of the past with Lenzing Modal®.
  Lorica IK9™ - Lorica IK9 is a 100% OPF (Oxidized PAN fiber) based technical interlock fabric. Lorica IK9 is a 9.5 oz. fabric, which combines extreme comfort with industry leading fire and electrical arc protection.
  Lycra® - Lycra® is the spandex fiber produced by Invista. It is lightweight and soft, but stronger and more durable than rubber. Lycra can be stretched over 500% without breaking, and can be stretched repeatedly and still recover it's original length. It provides lightweight freedom of movement in men's, women's and children's apparel. Uses include athletic apparel, bathing suits, foundation garments, ski pants, slacks, tights, slacks, support and surgical hose.
