Supplex® / Lycra® is our main sportswear fabric. Supplex® is the performance branded fibre from Invista (formerly DuPont) that is Air Jet Textured and feels soft like cotton but has the durability, high resistance to abrasion and tear-resistance of nylon.

Lycra® is the branded elastane yarn from Invista (formerly DuPont) that stretches several times in length with full recovery to give enhanced fit, stretch, comfort and performance.

Supplex® manages moisture, is fully breathable keeping you cool and dry, and is resistant to wind and rain and dries quickly. Supplex® also offers excellent protection from UVA and UVB rays from exposure to sunlight. Easy care Supplex® keeps its vibrant colour and soft handle, wash, after wash, after wash.
