Santa Monica, Calif.-based Hologenix LLC, makers of Celliant polyester infrared yarn technology, now offers two nylon yarns (70D and 40D FDY), available in January 2015. Celliant’s mineral-based yarn creates infrared light that penetrates the wearer’s muscle and tissue to increase circulation, which leads to improved recovery and increased performance.
Celliant yarns with drirelease® technology have created Dry Energy Technology. Celliant breaks apart water molecules and returns heat to the body; drirelease pulls moisture to the surface.
With Portland, Oregon’s design consultants The S Group, Celliant has developed pima cotton through the Cofaco Industries mill in Lima, Peru. Intended for base layers and active applications, the yarn is available in both 50 percent pima cotton/50 percent Celliant and 47 percent pima cotton/47 percent Celliant/6 percent spandex configurations.
Celliant is also developing a Merino wool yarn blend, available in early 2015, that will be both renewable and biodegradable.
Celliant is the proprietary technology of Hologenix, LLC, designers, manufacturers and distributors of bio-responsive fibers and textiles.
