Albany, NY â€“ PrimaLoftÂ®, the leading brand in fiber engineering, is entering the yarn market with the introduction of its latest technology, PrimaLoft SPIN. The new development will be presented at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show August 10-13, 2006 in Salt Lake City, UT (booth # 40128).
PrimaLoft has partnered with Fox River Mills Inc. to develop socks with PrimaLoft SPIN. To introduce PrimaLoft SPIN to the outdoor industry, PrimaLoft will give-away 2,000 pairs of Fox River socks made with the new yarn technology during the show.
â€œPrimaLoft SPIN has allowed us to enter a new market and potentially get into a variety of product offerings,â€ says Tom Mendl, PrimaLoft Marketing Director. â€œPrimaLoft SPIN is an optimal blend of PrimaLoft fibers and soft merino wool. It’s a new, innovative product that takes comfort to a higher level.â€
The PrimaLoft microfibers are half the size of typical cashmere fibers, resulting in an ultra-fine and soft yarn. The softness, durability and Quick Draw Technologyâ„¢ moisture management system make PrimaLoft SPIN the ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts who demand performance and comfort.
Quick Draw Technology is a moisture management system that combines the hydrophobic (moisture repelling) properties of PrimaLoft and the hydrophilic (moisture wicking) properties of wool to form a dynamic force field that pulls moisture away from the skin and pushes it out. The result is dry and comfortable feet.
PrimaLoftÂ® – Insulation Technologyâ„¢, PrimaLoftÂ® SPIN and Quick Draw Technologyâ„¢ are manufactured by and registered trademarks of Albany International Corp. and featured worldwide in outerwear, sleeping bags, gloves, footwear, socks, and luxury bedding. PrimaLoft’s manufacturing facilities are located in the US, Italy and China. For additional information, contact the Sales and Marketing Group at 800-833-3836 x2238 or visit www.primaloft.com.
