Ganga Acrowools has launched its Soft n Strong yarn range for knitters and crotchetiers, made with Pilbloc fibre, the flagship anti-pilling fibre brand of Thai Acrylic Fibre (TAF), a member of the Aditya Birla Group.

Pilbloc fibre has excellent pilling resistance and super soft hand-feel and Soft n Strong yarns are available in a wide range of classic shades.

Ganga Acrowools is a leading manufacturer of worsted acrylic and blended yarns and is one of the leading exporters of hand knitting yarns in India.

“We are pleased to launch Soft n Strong hand knitting and crocheting made with Pilbloc into our range,” said its managing director Ravinder Verma. “The antipilling yarn allows knitters and crotchetiers to create fun homemade yarn projects without any pilling frustrations.”

“More people are becoming active knitters/crotchetiers – the trend is rapidly growing as a large number of people try their hands at homemade crafts,” added Thomas Varghese, head of Aditya Birla Group’s textile business.
