Fabrics woven or knit from Eastman Estron™ acetate yarn meet the standard of high fashion—luxurious shimmer, drape, hand, and comfort. And it offers designers an array of runway-worthy options. From form-fitting finery to couture with crepe-like texture, Estron gives fashion designers the freedom to pursue their vision.
- Because of its inherent whiteness, Eastman acetate yarn can be dyed to render apparel fabrics that are especially bright and true in color.
- Estron yarns can simulate the look and feel of silk. Paired with nylon and spandex, it produces a wrinkle-free fabric with excellent stretch and recovery—the qualities found in increasingly popular travel knits.
- Estron is easy to cut, sew, and handle.
- It can be fashioned to breathe, wick, drape with no static cling, shine, and dazzle with brilliant colors.
- Eastman acetate yarns are also thermoplastic, meaning your designs can be readily pleated, creased, or fashioned into intriguing surface patterns.
- Estron is made from cellulose, a renewable resource derived from wood pulp. So today’s trendsetters can relax knowing their apparel is made with sustainable, environmentally friendly materials.
