Smart Underwear Incorporating Nanotechnology Set for Launch in 2008

Abstract:


Greenyarn, a Boston firm developing advanced fabrics for consumers seeking eco-friendly alternatives to conventional materials, is launching smart underwear as one of it's new products for 2008.

The highly comfortable underwear is made from Eco-fabric and Lycra, woven by a highly advanced seamless machine.

"Our research brought us to softer and finer fibers with embedded nanoparticles," said Robin Low, CEO of Greenyarn. "The nano-particles contain bamboo charcoal, which fight bacteria and deodorize. Furthermore, they absorb and emit Far Infrared energy."
