Specially developed by Korteks, TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns are high-tech yarns that are the result of texturizing 100% micro and super-micro polyester POY. TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns yarns are high-filament yarns whose features resemble natural fibers. Although the yarns are manufactured using continuous filament technology, fabrics woven from them are as soft to the touch as those made from staple fibers.
Better than cotton
While they may resemble fabrics made from natural fibers in many respects, those made from TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns are much less likely to wrinkle or shrink than cotton fabrics are and they are also much more durable. When woven into cloth, TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns feel just as soft and “cottony” as the real thing. Tests of these fabrics show that they perform at least as well as 100% cotton fabrics in terms of wrinkling and dimensional change and that they outperform them in terms of horizontal shrinkage. They significantly outperform all-cotton fabrics in withstanding repeated launderings. Besides having superior perspiration fastness and stain-resistance properties, fabrics made from TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns absorb water faster and are more “breathable”. With twice the burst strength of 100% cotton fabrics, they are also more advantageous. Fabrics made from TAÇ COTTONLIKE® yarns are also more resistant to pilling both before and after being washed.
