    What is Single Covered Yarn

    Single covered yarn, often abbreviated SCY, refers to yarn that has been wrapped with a covering fiber, usually polyester or nylon. This gives the yarn added durability and aesthetic properties compared to regular core spun yarn. Single covered yarn maintains the characteristics of the core yarn while benefiting from the covering.

    Applications of 100D Nylon 40D Spandex SCY

    The 100D nylon 40D spandex single covered yarn is commonly used in fabrics where both stretch and durability are desired, such as swimwear, activewear and intimates. The high stretch spandex core provides flexibility and recovery, while the strong nylon covering protects the yarn from abrasion during weaving or knitting processes. This single covered yarn strikes an optimal balance between comfort and resilience.

    SCY vs Core Spun Yarn

    While both single covered yarn and core spun yarn have a main core fiber wrapped by a secondary fiber, there are some key differences. SCY maintains the texture and feel of the core yarn thanks to a thinner, more integrated covering. Core spun yarn tends to feel more like the sheath fiber. In terms of durability, properly made single covered yarns resist pilling better than core spun alternatives.

    Ordering and Storage Recommendations

    When ordering 100D nylon 40D spandex single covered yarn, we recommend selecting dyelots from recent productions within a 3 month range to minimize variation. As with any yarn, proper storage conditions are important - dark, dry, clean storage areas with climate control help prevent moisture damage over time. Avoid direct heat or sunlight exposure.

    Dyeing and Finishing Options

    Single covered yarns like our 100D nylon 40D spandex provide great versatility for dyeing and finishing. The nylon cover takes liquid dyes readily, allowing a wide color palette. For heat-set yarns, lower temperatures around 180°C are recommended to preserve stretch and recovery. For best results, contact our technical team about the intended fabric application and processing conditions before ordering.

    There are a few key factors impacting cost for our 100D nylon 40D spandex single covered yarn: raw material prices, order volumes, added technical requirements, special transportation/logistics needs, etc. Higher minimums generally allow better pricing.
