EASY WASH is the environmental friendly alternative to the standard chlorine process used to make the fibres machine washable without shrinking. The Easy-Wash process is a treatment with eco-friendly oxidants, sourced in Germany and certified under REACH, Oeko-tex and ZDH (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical) standards. This means that this treatment does not involve the discharge of hazardous chemicals, which is not the case with most machine washable yarns in today’s market.
20% of the yarn's content is recycled nylon which applies strength to the yarn. This is the first time ISAGER uses a synthetic fiber in a yarn, because it was impossible to find a yarn in natural fibers only that was soft and comfortable, while simultaneously strong enough to be as durable as required for a sock yarn. The recycled nylon is an industrial wast product that normally would be disposed.
