Introduction to 100D Nylon 6 DTY Yarn

The 100D nylon 6 DTY yarn is a polyamide drawn textured yarn with a fineness of 100 denier. Unlike other variants like nylon 66, it is synthesized from caprolactam instead of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid. With excellent durability, elasticity, and abrasion resistance, 100D nylon 6 DTY is ideal for knitted fabrics and clothing like activewear, sportswear, socks, and leggings requiring stretch and recovery. Compared to other yarn types like FDY and POY, DTY offers bulkiness, moisture wicking, insulation, and versatility. We provide 100D nylon 6 DTY in a wide range of colors for manufacturers requiring quality yarns.

We use industry-leading nylon DTY production equipment to produce nylon high stretch yarn with both high strength and high elasticity, which has won a good reputation in the textile industry. The workshop is equipped with more than 60 sets of advanced DTY spinning equipment, which enables rapid production of customized high stretch yarn, and can support large quantities of off-the-shelf supply.

The nylon high stretch yarn is widely used in the manufacturing industry with high requirements for yarn strength and elasticity at the same time.

Applications of 100D Nylon Yarn in Textiles

From athletic apparel to fashion wear, 100D nylon yarn has become ubiquitous in the textile industry. Its elasticity and strength make it well-suited for items like sports bras, swimwear, athletic leggings, soccer socks, and compression gear where stretch and recovery are paramount. Technical outerwear and hiking apparel also utilize 100D nylon for its abrasion resistance. Beyond activewear, 100D nylon is also used in regular apparel like dresses, blouses, and trousers to add stretch and structure. Other textile applications include carpet backing, ropes, nets, and industrial fabrics. Our 100D nylon yarn can be customized for knitters and weavers seeking specific properties.

Advantages of 100D Nylon 6 DTY Yarn Over Other Variants

Compared to other variants like 70D Nylon 6 DTY or 150D, the 100D nylon 6 DTY offers an optimal balance of fineness and strength. It provides stretch, durability and insulation without being overly bulky or heavy. The 100D balances cost-effectiveness and performance, making it suitable for a wide range of end uses. Unlike nylon 66 yarn, nylon 6 yarn offers superior elasticity, dyeability and abrasion resistance. And compared to other yarn types like nylon FDY or POY, the textured DTY structure provides bulk, moisture wicking and insulation. For manufacturers seeking quality yarns with versatility, our 100D nylon 6 DTY is an excellent option.


Among the family of polymers, Nylon is the most significant one that comes in 66 yarns. Nylon 66 yarn is a type of usually chosen alternative for industrial and clothing fabric sewing with thread features. Besides, Nylon 66 yarn is completely made of 2 monomers including 6 carbon atoms. The exciting features of Nylon 66 yarn are the high-heat absorption with tough material making.

Because of its high melting temperature, Nylon 66 yarn’s heat strength becomes more robust at 180 degrees Celsius. Since Nylon 66 has the most usage in industrial fabrics, the use of extreme heat turns any product into the final product one like the tire cord. Such heat helps to gain enough strength to bring changes in the manufacturing process.

100D Nylon Yarn for Sportswear and Athletic Apparel

With its durability, stretch and moisture wicking abilities, 100D nylon yarn is ideal for activewear and sports apparel. It is commonly used in jerseys, athletic socks, compression tights, swimwear, and other garments where both performance and comfort are important. The abrasion resistance prevents pilling or damage during high activity. The elasticity provides freedom of movement while maintaining shape retention. And the quick-drying properties keep athletes comfortable. Our 100D nylon yarn can be customized for color, texture, and performance needs. For manufacturers seeking a reliable yarn for activewear, our 100D nylon is an excellent choice.

Comparing 100D Nylon 6 DTY with 70D and 150D Variants

While 70D nylon yarn is finer and more lightweight, the 100D offers better durability and abrasion resistance. The 100D has better elasticity than the coarser 150D variant. For high stretch fabrics, the 100D balances strength and flexibility. In terms of cost, 100D nylon is more affordable than 70D but more expensive than 150D. For versatility across a range of textile applications, the 100D nylon 6 DTY offers the best combination of price, performance and properties. Our sales team can advise on selecting the right denier for your specific manufacturing needs. With access to various counts, we help manufacturers optimize yarn selection.

Care and Maintenance Recommendations for Fabrics Using 100D Nylon

For fabrics knitted or woven from our 100D nylon yarn, we recommend gentle machine washing in cold water and tumble drying on low heat. Avoid bleach or fabric softeners which can damage the fibers. While nylon is durable, abrasion should be minimized to prevent pilling. For items prone to static cling like athletic wear, use liquid fabric softener sparingly. Fabric lifespan can be extended by folding versus hanging to reduce stress. Iron on medium heat if needed but avoid direct contact with trims or embellishments. Following these care instructions will help maintain the integrity and appearance of 100D nylon fabrics.

The Difference Between 100D Nylon 6 DTY, FDY, and POY Yarns

While all are forms of nylon 6 filament, DTY, FDY and POY have distinct production methods and properties. POY is untreated, offering no stretch. FDY is stronger with some sheen, good for woven fabrics. DTY is textured for bulk, stretch and insulation ideal for knits. POY and FDY have no crimp while DTY is highly crimped. Our 100D nylon 6 DTY provides optimal stretch, bulk and moisture wicking compared to POY and FDY. With knowledge of these key differences, manufacturers can select the right yarn type for their specific textile needs. Our team can advise you on the performance and applications for each yarn.

You can learn more about POY, DTY, and FDY in this article: POY, DTY and FDY of Polyester Yarn. Although it’s about polyester yarn, it’s the same principle with nylon yarn.
