ITY fabric

wlric | Posted in General Discussion on

Does anyone know what ITY describes regarding fabric? Is it a type of fiber, weave, or something else?
thanks, wlric

    could you perhaps give us the sentence "ITY" was used in?

      I have a poly/spandex fabric swatch that is labeled ITY and was curious as to the meaning. I had done a Google search here, but didn't find a satisfactory answer. The Google.au did have more responses and after a few clicks I found a Malaysian fabric manufacturing site that actually used words to describe: Improved Texture Yarn. ITY
      Thanks!

        So, now the question is; just what is "improved texture yarn??" is this like a microfiber? how did they improve the texture? I some times wonder if companies just make up some of these names so people will think they are getting something extra special!

          Textiles are fairly tightly regulated, so it's unlikely that a printed claim is a sham.  A lot of advances have been made recently in the science of textiles, and as each is made available, it's patented and named uniquely.  On the next rainy day, I can check textile science journals and books to learn more about this innovation.

          The swatch that I have has a very nice "hand". Almost silky, but it's definitely a poly/span knit. When I get a little extra time I will do some research on this also. Thanks for your interest and help.
