Cap Yarns is a premiere manufacturer of Streaky Yarn. This unique yarn has a vintage feel the fabric. The Streaky Yarn is obtained by a unique blending process of three fibers components. The striated look has a planned uneven blend so that the variation is carried through out the fabric. This is easier said than done. Cap Yarns has profected this process.
When using this blend of yarn it lends itself to have a very nice drape especially in a knit fabric.
The Streaky yarn is a tri-blend and each component can be dyed separately to give a completely different look. The list below shows the dying possibilities:
Disperse dyed + Bleach Cotton : Polyester component (Two Tone – One Color and White)
Reactive dyed : Cotton and Rayon components (Tone on Tone and White)
Two part dyed (Reactive + Disperse) : Cotton / Rayon and Polyester (Cross dyed/ Multi-color)
Fiber dyed: Available in other styles
