The choice of the fiber is an important aspect for the realization of warp knitted items.
The first step when we receive bobbins from the supplier is the WARPING.

The most used fiber by Cifra for the knitting of WKS garments is Nylon 6.6. Its excellent properties:
  • Exceptionally strong
  • Elastic
  • Easy to wash
  • Superior moisture management
  • Filament yarns provide smooth, soft and long-lasting fabrics
  • Light and warm
We use it single or combined with Lycra, Polypropylene, polyester, merino wool and many others.
