Organic Fibers

Crailar Organic Fibers are the building blocks for the first truly sustainable yarn in the apparel industry.  Our fibers are processed through a patented enzymatic bath created in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada.  Prior to the bath, the fibers of up to a meter in length are cut to the desired staple length rivaling the very best long line cotton.  These fibers then enter processing equipment which turns the straw-like fibers into soft, fluffy white fibers similar to organic cotton.

The result is a yarn with characteristics such as increased burst strength, enhanced wicking properties and reduced shrinkage that organic cotton simply can never achieve.  As every step of the process can be certified organic, Crailar’s Organic Fiber  has become the first truly sustainable yarn in the apparel industry.

We’ve recently entered into a joint development agreement with one of the worlds largest consumer brands – Hanes.  To find out more about our relationship with Hanes, click here.
