Nu-Torque™ cotton yarns have good soft handle and surface appearance, higher yarn tenacity at lower twist levels, lower residual torque and hairiness, and low knitted fabric spirality after washing. They can provide much thinner and lighter fabrics as well as unique wool like softness of fabric. However, the current technology is difficult to manufacture finer yarn counts, even at 30Ne.
