TOTAL EASY CARE WOOL TECHNOLOGY

Easy Care is now an essential feature in knitwear purchase decisions. Key to Total Easy Care Wool
is preventing wool from shrinking and be able to launder it multiple times in a washing machine
and tumble dry without any noticeable change in its shape or dimensions.
 
This can be achieved by treating the fibre (continuously as wool top), or by treating knitted articles.
Devan Chemicals is now the only company in the world able to offer a full supply chain service, from
processes, products and processors with full technical support, to guiding those companies wishing to
source Total Easy Care products.
 
WHY DOES WOOL SHRINK?
 
Wool garments felt (shrink) because of the scale structure on the fibre surface. The
scales all point in one direction and can lock individual fibres together when a
garment is subject to movement, eg during washing.
 
Chemical processes designed to reduce felting of wool work by modifying the scale
structure of wool, reducing the difference in friction in the two directions along the
fibre. This eliminates the tendency of the fibre to move in only one direction, making
the garment suitable for machine washing.
 
 
 
THE DYLAN PROCESS
 
The Dylan® process are the most technically advanced, ecologically friendly, processes of their type
which gives a soft, comfortable wool which is able to withstand machine washing and tumble
drying. Easy Care wool knitwear should retain its “as new” appearance through its life.
 
There are 2 process available:
  •  The Dylan® SIMPL -X process for processing knitted articles (eg of sweaters, socks etc.)
  •  The Dylan® E-TEC process is for the continuous treatment of wool tops
