A PARTNERSHIP OF PRESTIGIOUS BRANDS - SWEATY BETTY AND FULGAR CREATE EVEN HIGHER-PERFORMANCE ACTIVEWEAR
The brand has chosen Fulgar’s Q-SKIN® yarn for its Athlete collection
Sweaty Betty, the activewear brand founded in London in the late 1990s that makes functional and fashion women’s workout collections for running, yoga and other activities, has chosen Q-SKIN® by Fulgar for a selection of key garments in its Athlete collection.
Q-SKIN® is a polyamide 6.6 that incorporates silver ions inserted directly into the yarn during the spinning process. The unique chemical and physical properties of the silver control bacterial growth propagation. Bacteria carry a negative charge while the silver ions contained by Q-SKIN® by Fulgar carry a positive charge – this mechanism enables the silver ions to reduce excess bacterial flora, enhancing humidity management while also generating a feeling of cool freshness on the skin. The bacteriostatic performance and resistance to repeated washing offered by Q-SKIN® by Fulgar® yarn have been confirmed through rigorous testing, which has also demonstrated the yarn’s effectiveness against the main gram positive (staphylococcus aureus) and gram negative (klebsiella pneumoniae) groups of bacteria.
As a result Q-SKIN® by Fulgar is the ideal ally for Sweaty Betty garments, as during sports activities it can hinder the development of unpleasant odours and bacterial growth. It offers wearers a host of additional benefits like breathability, coolness and comfort, protecting the skin all the while.
Fiona Hannam, Head of Product Technology at Sweaty Betty declares: “We always aim for the best for our collections. That’s why we’ve chosen to turn to Fulgar for cutting-edge Q-SKIN® fibre, developed and produced in Italy with an emphasis on outstanding quality”.
“We’re pleased to support Sweaty Betty in its successful search for increasingly high-performance collections backed by the potential offered by our yarns. We hope this is a first step towards an even more productive collaboration. Our portfolio includes functional and sustainable yarns”, says Fulgar Marketing Manager Daniela Antunes.
