THERMOLITE® EVERYDAY WARMTH technology for socks has been launched by the global developer of sustainable and innovative fiber and technology solutions for the apparel and personal care industries, The LYCRA Co. Through this latest innovation, the company will be able to transform how brands deliver an everyday sock solution with lightweight warmth and comfort for their customers.
Thermolite Everyday Warmth technology for socks is unique. These socks trap the wearer’s body heat and stores it in the hollow fibers in the sock. This provides warmth without excess weight. There are numerous key benefits that this warming technology can provide, including a superior garment-wearing experience.
According to the LYCRA Co. the fiber blends for the everyday sock are meant to keep the wearer comfortable while temperatures drop indoors or outdoors. With a standardized measurement technique, values have been established that measure the degree of warmth in socks, ensuring that wearers’ feet stay warm.
“We’re laser-focused on producing high-quality fibers that empower our customers to create comfortable garments that deliver lasting performance,” says Sybille Bald, legwear strategic marketing director at The Lycra Co.
“As the temperatures drop and people lower their thermostats to save energy, socks that help keep feet warm will become a critical component of daily attire. The launch of Thermolite Everyday Warmth technology for socks enables brands to differentiate their products while providing consumers in colder environments the warmth they require.”
