FLAKE YARN


This novelty yarn is a variation on a slub yarn, in which the flake or slub is created by inserting soft, puffy clumps of roving at intervals held in place by an accompanying binder yarn. As a result, the ending yarn has variations in thickness and softness throughout the length of the finished yarn. Applications for a flake yarn are mainly in end-use fabrics where a fancy effect texture to the fabric is desired.

MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.
