Thai Acrylic Fibre (TAF) has received an overwhelming response to its Regel recycled acrylic fibre since its launch a few weeks ago, and is now expanding the range to finer deniers of 1.5 and 2.5.

Regel is made from recycling acrylic waste to meet the growing demand for sustainable fashion products from global consumers, brands and retailers.

 “Regel is one of the first successful commercial acrylic fibres produced by recycling waste,” says Tuhin Kulshreshtha, head of marketing at TAF. “It is manufactured via an authentic and intimate chemical recycling process and the fibres match conventionally-manufactured acrylic for warmth, comfort and vibrant shades. Regel is also a GRS certified acrylic fibre.

“These finer deniers will enable our customers to develop lightweight fabrics and applications to achieve comfort and functional support, for innerwear, socks, baselayers and sweaters.”
