SWICOFIL - Yarn and fiber expert.


Fancy effect yarns to boost your textile product's performance.
Fancy yarns like chenille yarns, flocked yarn or coated yarn with Swicofil.
Fancy yarns have no absolute definition. However, fancy yarn are somehow special in their appearance.

Fancy yarns are produced by different machinery:

  1. Chenille machines
    The final product is chenille yarn. Chenille yarn is manufactured by placing short lengths of yarn, called the "pile", between two "core yarns" and then twisting the yarn together. The edges of these piles then stand at right angles to the yarn’s core, giving chenille both its softness and its characteristic look. 
    Contact the Swicofil team if you are interested in chenille yarn.

  2. Hollow-spinning machine
    The final product is a hollow-tube yarn with or without fibers in the core. Available in e.g. polypropylene or polyester. Contact the Swicofil team if you are interested in hollow yarns.
