This features a high degree of insulation and is made from 100% recycled polyester derived from recycled PET bottles. It is also particularly soft and breathable, making it ideal for sports and fashion clothing, including modern fits.
In contrast, the fiber balls and loose fibers of the new WB 300 R (fiber balls) and WA 100 R (loose fibers) series have superior bulking properties and can be used to make garments with the look and feel of down. These series are also made from 100% recycled polyester from recycled PET bottles.
