Neela's denim fabric with viloft and viseta fibres
There is an abundance of fibres brands can select from in the denim industry. However, two that stand out from the rest are Viloft and Viseta fibres, which can be perfectly blended with cotton and other raw materials. But what are they?

Both fibres are created by a German manufacturer, Kelheim Fibres. The Viseta Fibre is lightweight, soft, and 50% finer than silk. It is crafted from natural cellulose fibres, providing unrecognisable comfort levels while maintaining the utmost strength and longevity.

The Viloft Fibres are more well-known for their moisture management, breathability, and durability. It is created from viscose which is produced from extracting cellulose from wood and reshaping it into the final product. Therefore, it is biodegradable and has an FSC certification

After the brief introduction to each of these ground-breaking fibres, you should have a general idea of what they are. However, what are the primary reasons for blending these fibres into the denim we make? 

  1. Enhanced breathability – Unlike 100% cotton, these fibres are developed by trapping air within the material to enhance breathability
  2. Superb moisture regain – Both fibres are also created with moisture management in mind, ensuring optimal vapour absorption. 
  3. Excellent Hygiene – Due to their moisture regain capabilities, it makes for a cleaner, more hygienic fibre capable of retarding the growth of bacteria naturally.  
  4. Superior softness – The flat fibres of the Viloft offer immense softness, while the Viseta matches this with its natural cellulose fibres.
  5. Natural origin – Each Viseta and Viloft Fibres are made from natural resources which are 100% biodegradable.

We implement each of these fibres within our blends, and these fibres can be found in the following fabrics: Ginola Sapphire Blue, Swift Core Blue and Veyron Halicarnas Blue.

Each mentioned product uses different blends between cotton and the two innovative fabrics. In most circumstances, the ratio with cotton and Viseta or Viloft Fibres are roughly 70:30 or 50:50, depending on the item itself.
