A counterintuitively powerful fabric, soft and strong. Strongtwill starts with Supplex, an air texturized nylon fiber originally designed to emulate the soft breathability of cotton in undergarments. To make the Strongtwill dozens upon dozens of these extremely fine filaments are twisted together to make a thick, chunky yarn. The gentle touch is still there but with so many fibers per yarn it hides under a rugged durability, there to slowly emerge with repeated hard wear. A stretch and non-stretch version of these thick supplex yarns are woven together in a 2x1 twill to create two way stretch fabric with the long term softness of cotton combined with the serious toughness of high grade nylon 6,6. The fabric is then finished with an ecocalibrated DWR to stay cleaner and dry quicker for more intensive wearability.
