SOLOTEX®

filament and staple fiber

SOLOTEX® is a Poly Trimethylene Telephthalate (PTT) product. It has a springy molecular structure which provides the advantages of both polyester and nylon to create a stretchy and soft texture. This material is easy to combine with natural fibers as well as synthetic fibers. The structual components of SOLOTEX® are partially bio-derived.
