18 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Tues., April 25, 1972 By Fiinces Dittrich WHAT IS TREV1RA? A reader asks: "What is Trevira?" With the multitude ol trade names for yarns, fabrics, ami finishes, plus the family names for 1C different basic types of man-made fibers, one can understand the average person's puzzlement. Trcvoira is a trade name for a polyester fiber developed in Frankfurt, West Germany. Fifteen years ago, Imperial Industries in England perfected the ..first polyester fiber and licensed companies around the world to produce it. Faberke Hoeuhsl AG, which was founded in 1803 as P manufacturer of dyo%Mfs and is now one of the six top companies in the chemical industry, was one of the licensees. An off-shoot of thai company, floechst Fibers, Inc., is based in Sparlanburg, S.C. Easy Care Fabric P o l y e s t e r w a s developed simultaneously in Ihe United wool, you have Europe, but · the were somewhat States and approaches different. In this country, it was promoted as a practical fiber for easy-care fabric. In Europe, the keynote was the use of polyester in high- style fabric. Emphasis was put on the characteristics it contributed in blends in wool, silk and linen. P r e s e n t l y , more textile companies in Ibis country are blending polyester with natural fibers in addition to old-faithful cotton. But the Hoechst Company, which started out in the couturier world claims an international bank of fashion and color expertise. Trevira polyester fabric lias been .in the home-sewing market for four years. It is slill a "quality shop" item, demanding and getting a slightly higher price than domestic polyesters of comparable weight in a 100 per cenl polyester. Shape Varies When polyester is formed into long hair-like filaments, il is normally smooth and rod- shaped. Most liter companies vary the shape to achieve certain effects. The Hoechst Company produced a star- shapcd fiber three years ago, which Ihey call Trevira "star." When made' into yarn and woven iiito cloth, it provides a softly glowing sheen and a luxurious touch. Trevirii fillers arc also being produced in a spun version, which means that the filament with natural a fabric that is soft and resilient. This blend is being featured in doubleknits. And Wool, Too You may wonder about the combination of polyester and wool. How will the wool react when the fabric is washed? No problem. The spun polyester and wool are intermingled the basic fiber stage and heal set, This provides a mutual degree of flexibility. Polyester and wool blends arc hand or machine washable al low temperature with a mile detergent. Remove the garment from the washing machine immediately. Do not wring Rinse thoroughly in warm, not hot, water. Squeeze out the excess water and place on flat surface to dry. In the case of woven polyester and wool you may hang the. garment on a nonrust hanger to dry. is chopped into little pieces like natural cotton or wool fibers, Ihen spun into yam. This produces a loftier, fuzzier yarn.
