Light, Warm and Durable High-volume Knitted Fabric
As a light, warm and durable fabric with strong abrasion resistance and minimal microplastic emission. KARUISHI™ also reduces any adverse impact on the environment.
KARUISHI™’s abrasion resistance ranks much higher than conventional spun yarn or brushed filament fabric due to a special knitting structure in which abrasion-resistant brushed yarn is connected only to back yarn, without showing on the front surface. The two-layer construction maintains the fabric’s high volume.
Minimal loose fiber shedding = Less environmental pollution
KARUISHI™’s high abrasion resistance works to effectively resist pilling as fewer loose fibers detach from the fabric. Less shedding minimizes plastic waste that in turn reduces microplastic emissions.
Textile evolution begins with raw materials – New KARUISHI™ debuts
Using raw materials regenerated from plastic product waste helps cut consumption of underground resources and reduces waste. Toray is committed to developing responsible materials with sensitive awareness of the environment, people and living in the future, working for those loving sports and outdoor activities.
High Durability Against Rubbing
Soft and fine polyester makes fabric softer.
Special brushed fabrivation traps warm air inside the fabric.
Brushed yarn only connected to back yarn creates high volume and uncanny lightness.
This technique results in greater abrasion resistance than conventional spun or other brushed filament materials.
High volume with perfect 2-layer structure.
