Curled BiopolymersThis is a polyactide fibre, PLA for short. It is a crop-based fibre derived entirely from natural renewable sources like corn. We call it a "natural plastic" because it is made from the dextrose extracted from corn. The product is extremely strong, provides high dimensional stability, and is extremely resilient. It has relatively low flammability and smoke generation properties, and is more hydrophilic than common polyester fibres. The low moisture absorption and high wicking make this material ideal for sports and performance apparel, but also for bedding applications.
