The Gleaming line by the Marchi & Fildi Group, headquartered in Biella, Italy, includes a wide range of metalloplastic yarns for the most varied uses.

In addition to fancy yarns, decoration and accessories for fashion and furnishings, an important application for the collection is in the sector of technical clothing with high-visibility features.

The new Reflex range of reflective yarns is used for the production of fabrics and tapes and able to reflect light to ensure good visibility in low-light situations. It is now being augmented by new colour shades offering new possibilities for tapes, external labels and accessories, technical fabrics for work clothing with specific safety standards, uniforms, sports clothing and accessories and hosiery, gloves, bibs and hats for night use and winter clothing.

The latest addition to the range is Reflex stretch yarn, which, also finds applications in flatbed or circular knitting and sewing. Its composition makes it softer and more versatile in comparison to traditional reflectives.

The Gleaming yarns are available in various thicknesses, widths and types in both metallised and transparent versions, and with iridescent, reflective and phosphorescent effects. The company can also supply  articles with particular features of resistance to chemical and dyeing treatments, as well as metalloplastic yarns in 100% polyester obtained from post-consumer recycling with GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification.
