Source Of Acrylic Yarn

Acrylic yarn is made from a synthetic polymer called acrylonitrile. This type of fiber is produced by reacting certain petroleum or coal-based chemicals with various monomers, which means acrylic fabric is a fossil fuel fiber.

  Since the acrylic fabric is one of the most airtight textiles in the world, it is ideal for thermal insulation applications. For example, it is commonly used in sports equipment, typically in tracksuits, hoodies, and sweatpants made from acrylic fabrics. However, there are concerns that acrylic may cause cancer, so it may be prudent to avoid contacting this fiber with the skin.

  Like many other synthetic textile fibers, DuPont originally developed acrylic fibers. The company was already known worldwide for developing nylon and mainstreaming polyester production, and when acrylic fibers were invented in the 1940s, the world saw this development as just the next step in DuPont's meteoric rise to dominate the world textile market.

  However, it wasn't until the 1950s that acrylic fibers became particularly popular. The success of DuPont's other synthetic textiles may have contributed to the slow mainstreaming of acrylic fibers. The company has replaced silk with nylon and cotton with polyester, potentially reducing consumer acceptance of the company's new wool substitute, acrylic.
