Alandale's New Combo Gives Designers Flexibility

Alandale Knitting has added TrapTek's Cocona yarns to its strataTek stretch knits.


The strataTek knitting technique allows designers to position Coconayarns on the inside of the fabric while placing other fashion or performance yarns on the outside of the fabric.


Cocona yarns offer moisture-management and odor-absorption properties for next-to-skin applications.


Alandale's combination of Cocona and strataTek also give designers unique color options. Because Coconayarn is inherently gray in color (it is made with activated carbon), pairing it with dyeable or printable yarns allows for many different cross-dye effects and print/solid combinations.
