It is a yarn that performs exactly the same as traditional nylon, but it is created from nylon waste that would otherwise be polluting the planet. Nylon waste might be fishing nets, or textile production scraps that are then transformed into a new yarn with the same characteristics as the raw virgin material. ECONYL® nylon can be recycled and remoulded over and over again. Nylon is a highly stretchable fabric, it is strong and durable, with moisture wicking and heat retention properties too, as well as being UV resistant - making it such a good choice for equestrian wear and the demands we put on our clothes as riders.
As well as being a solution to waste, for every tonne of ECONYL® raw material produced, 7 barrels of oil are saved and 65 tonnes of CO2 equivalent are avoided.
