Lingerie Lace From Radici’s CornLeaf Yarn

(Filed Under Textiles News). Yarn maker RadiciGroup and lingerie embroidery maker Ritex SpA have just launched what they claim is a “high-quality and eco-friendly” lace fabric made from “vegetable resources,” according to a joint statement.

The new lace fabric is made using CornLeaf, a yarn from RadiciGroup, made from Ingeo(tm) polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymer, and in collaboration with yarn twister Alcafil Srl. According to the company statement, CornLeaf is “a bacteriostatic solution-dyed yarn” that “fully meets eco-sustainability standards, such as lower CO2 emissions and reduced water and energy consumption. Solution dyeing during the spinning stage means that the CornLeaf production process requires less water and energy compared to traditional dyeing and finishing.”

The new yarn is available in a wide range of “light fast, wash-resistant colors” with “antimicrobial functionality” achieved “ by incorporating a special silver micro-compound into the fiber. Furthermore, its effectiveness has been certified according to ISO 20743:2007 standards.” According to the companies, “the compound will not interfere with the compostability of the yarn. In brief CornLeaf combines the advantages of natural fibres with those of synthetics: light weight, tenacity, comfort, UV resistance and safety.”
