B.I.G. Unveils ColorMind Yarn Technology

Wielsbeke, Belgium, May 18, 2021-B.I.G. (Beaulieu International Group) Yarns is unveiling ColorMind, a new high-end loop-pile for contract and automotive carpets. The yarn technology is B.I.G. Yarns’ first venture into a two steps yarn collection, offering a solution for creating multi-color PA6 yarns for any carpet design.

Available from mid-June 2021 in both standard and EqoCycle 75% recycled content yarn, designers are invited to work closely with B.I.G. Yarns experts utilizing combinations of variable levels of twisting and air entanglement, using up to six colors at once.

The ColorMind color bank features predefined colors, always in stock, meaning short lead times. Manufacturers can also benefit from customized lot sizes and bobbin length.

To preview a taster of the potential directions opened up for loop-pile carpets, B.I.G. Yarns has used the technology to achieve its own “Optica” dot effect and “Illusion” wave effect as inspiration for customers’ design explorations.

ColorMind PA6 yarns are based on a unique Solution Dyed Nylon yarn and are suitable for Class 33 certification (heavy commercial use). The EqoCycle yarn version is mainly based on post-industrial waste and supports contract and automotive carpet manufacturers with a drop-in circular solution to reduce the ecological footprint of their end carpets.
