The company FENIX 94 is based in the central urban area of the city of Ruse, BULGARIA and is specialized in the production of socks. The working process has practically no emissions of noxious substances and all socks are free of toxic matters which is confirmed by the Oeko-Tex 100© laboratories with the certificate nr. 07.RD.51267.
The socks that FENIX 94 produces are made out of raw materials delivered only from producers which can guarantee a production according to the latest ecological requirements. So they can ensure all their current and future customers that they will receive modern articles that don’t harm the environment.
Bamboo fibres – they have unusual ability to breathe and keep cool. Because the cross-section of the bamboo the fiber is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes and has much better micro-structure, bamboo socks can absorb and evaporate human sweet in a split second. The bamboo fibers are naturally antibacterial and are praised as “the natural, green and eco-friendly new-type textile material of the 21th sentury”.
Modal – this is a cellulose fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose. It’s about 50% more hygroscopic ( water-absorbent) per unit volume than cotton. Socks made from modal & modal mixtures such as Modal-cotton and Modal-PES are resistant to shrinkage & fading and are smooth & soft. Mineral deposits from hard water do not stick to the fibres. Its supple texture, soft look and brilliant silky sheen make Lenzing Modal particulary attractive for socks and underwear.
100% Cotton – is soft, natural fiber that absorbs moisture easily and drawns heat away from the skin to keep cool, making it comfortable to ware. It can absorb up to one fifth of its weight in water before it feels damp. We have developed a special finish of the cotton socks which provides even faster absorbing of the body wet and its leading to the surface where it easily vapours.
Climayarn – this is an intimate mixture of MERINO WOOL (superwasch) and POLYPROPYLENE. These yarns have the function of temperature regulation in the conditions of extreme temperature variation. For example, it has a warming effect in cold weather and prevents overheating in hot weather.
Coolmax® has proven to reduce skin temperature, lower heart hydration during exercise and maintain hydration while offering excellent moisture management.
Thermolite® – provides warmth and comfort without weight, even when wet. It’s the lightweight material that provides heavy-duty performance since the hollow-core fibres air for greater insulation. Plus your skin remains dry because it absorbs the wet 20@ faster than other similar yarns and 50% faster than cotton.
Merino Wool – It is the highest and finest type of wool obtainable. It does not itch and is shrink-treated to hold its size and shape.
Prolen® Siltex – Progressive antibacterially modified polypropylene fibres Prolen® Syltex and Prolen® Bodyfresh effectively inhibit the growth of bacteria, funghi and moulds. This way they reduce unpleasant smells, keep a biological balance of the skin and set a hygenic freshness to the product during the whole day. They are harmless for man and the environment.
Tactel® – The durability, colour retention and easy care make it perfect fiber for socks. Tactel® is a DuPont brand of micro fiber hosiery yarns that delivers the ultimate in softness.
Teflon® PTFE fluoropolymer – these fibers exhibit none of the cold-flow problems of PTFE films, so they are more stable under extremes of heat and pressure.
The yarns have higher tensile strenght and abrasion resistance than a comparable PTFE film. Moreover the socks made out of Teflon® yarns exhibit also greater chemical and wet resistance than PTFE films.
Lycra® – adding as little as 2 to 3 percent of Lycra® to cotton or wool allows socks to aquire superior staying power and ultimate stretch.
This assures superior wear, comfort, excellent size and shape after repeated wear and laundering.
Cool Cotton Max – Cotton is a soft, natural fiber that absorbs moisture easily and drawns heat away from the skin to keep cool, making it comfortable to ware. It can absorb up to one fifth of its weight in water before it feels damp. We have developed a special finish of the cotton socks which provides even faster absorbing of the body wet and its leading to the surface where it easily vapours.
Sanitized® Silver – a special finish which keeps away the odour and provides long lasting antibacterial protection.
