What is yarn?
Yarn is a long continuous length of interlocked fibres, suitable for use in the production of textiles, sewing, crocheting, knitting, weaving, embroidery, and ropemaking. The word yarn comes from Middle English, from the Old English gearn. Gearn is similar to Old High German’s garn yarn, Greek’s chordē string, and Sanskrit’s hira band. Yarn can be made from a number of natural or synthetic fibers. Many types of yarn are made differently though. There are two main types of yarn: spun and filament. Below you can find out what special yarn we are using to deliver the best fabrics on the market.
Flocus® Made in Kapok
The SeaCell Fiber
“All life comes from the sea.” SeaCell™ fiber associates cellulose with brown algae, or seaweed, from a cold & pure fjord of Iceland, and delivers a protective effect permanently to human beings, such as re-mineralizing skins, activating cell-regeneration, and more.
Alongside with the extreme softness & comfort, brown algae genuinely contains abundant beneficial nutrients – (1) vitamins A, B & E, (2) minerals: magnesium & calcium, (3) amino acids, and (4) iron & iodine, offering a positive impact & wellness to your body.
The All-Performance Fiber
CoolVisions® polypropylene fiber is among the lightest of all commercial fibers. An increased number of polypropylene fibers per kilogram of fabric offers added value compared to many other fibers.
- Improves coverage for the same weight
- Equal coverage in lighter weight fabrics for comfortable garments and better value
CoolVisions® fibers are inherently softer for greater comfort.
Kapok is found in nature; on a tree, inside a dried shell. The trees are found on hills, in the non-agricultural land of South East Asia and North tropics, from southern Mexico to the southern Amazon and West Africa, leaving flat land for agriculture, food provision and population growth. Kapok trees only require natural rainwater and a warm climate to thrive, hence no additional fertilizers are needed. Pesticides are not necessary because the fiber has a natural waxy coating that protects it from insects.
Flocus’ mission is to utilize the cleanest fiber available for textiles to start a clean revolution. Besides being clean, this fiber provides abundant natural properties such as its antibacterial property, moth and mite resistance, its hollowness that makes It insulating, its hydrophobic property because of its Wax coating making it buoyant and quick dry. ln addition it is highly comfortable to touch providing a very soothing silky-cotton feel to the skin.
It seems impossible that a natural fiber – even before any human interference – could hold so many properties, but the truth is that nature knows the best. Flocus yarn provide a natural dry and soft comfortable touch to the skin. Flocus fabrics give a cool feel in the summer and maintain warmth in winter, Much like kapok fibers’ original properties it adds quick dry, anti-bacterial. anti-moth and anti-mite properties to the blend.
Flocus provide ecological fabric with natural blends and sportswear blends aimed to provide a real natural touch to sportswear fabrics without losing the active functions.

Sorona® is a versatile fiber, and its long list of uses comes from a kink in the PTT polymer chain that naturally snaps back into shape. Whether a textile is made of just Sorona® or it’s combined with other fibers, the end result is superior performance, softness and durability.
Made from 37% plant-based ingredients, Sorona® helps reduce our dependence on oil and petrochemicals and shrinks our environmental footprint. As an eco-efficient fiber, Sorona® makes you feel good by doing good.

Cupro is made from a cotton linter, a mostly unused part of a cotton plant. Cotton linter is the short, downy fiber with high amount of cellulose that enfolds cotton seeds. It cannot be made into yarn directly and thus, it is normally wasted. Using the latest chemical processing science and technology, it is transformed into a precious yarn: born by nature, made by humans.
During the production process, all impurities are removed and Cupro is born as a pure cellulose, vastly outperforming the natural cotton yarn. It features both the gentleness of natural fibers and the functionality of man-made fibers. Each Cupro fiber is extremely fine, uniform in thickness and has a circular cross section, largely free from the unevenness of natural fibers. The fibers can be both staple and filament, offering many end uses and applications.
Cupro is much softer and smoother than cotton, offering comfort only matched by silk. It also offers excellent moisture management properties and outstanding temperature regulation, Curpo fabrics keep wearers cool in summer and warm in winter. Unlike cotton fabrics, Cupro is highly usable for sports and outdoor. Specific uses include underwear, tops, t-shirts and polo-shirts for running, golf and yoga. The fabric works the best when directly in contact with skin, for consumers seeking high quality comfortable clothing.
