CircStretch KNIT COLLECTION
Natural fibers blended with ROICA™ V550. Jersey Knits & Rib Knits
STSC's CircStretch collection blends natural fibers with ROICA™ V550, the world’s first Cradle To Cradle® Products Innovation Institute Gold Level Material Health Certified elastane yarn that is also Certified by the Hohenstein Institute as 100% non-toxic as it breaks down.
By using compostable natural fibres, Cradle To Cradle® and Bluesign® dyes plus 2% to 20+% ROICA™ V550, this ensures zero harmful microplastics are left in the environment and our CircStretch can be home composted.

“We aim to do good, not just less bad” and help design out waste and pollution
CircStretch is a vital textile to help combat the growing false promotion that “recycled plastic” is environmentally sound and try address the devastating impact resulting from its increased consumption.
STSC have spent over a year working with the Japanese inventors of ROICA™ V550 along with our specialized mills in India and China to develop the CircStretch collection to combat the global problem of plastic pollution.
We blend the ROICA™ V550 with
- Modal. TENCEL™ Modal and Birla Cellulose™ Modal
- Viscose: LENZING™ EcoVero™ and Birla Cellulose LivaEco
- GOT Organic Cotton
Our unique collection is non-toxic and 100% compostable. The majority of the textile is natural fibres that break down in soil in around 8 weeks*. The difference between CircStretch and every other stretch textile is the fossil fuel textiles create plastic microfibres and microplastics taking hundreds of years to break down.
The small percentage of bio-stretch is also capable of breaking down in microbiologically active home compost and may take only 1-2 years depending on the compost.
This has paved the way for STSC and the Circular Centre to start trials for a Take-Back Commercial Composting System.
There are a number of other bespoke CircStretch blends we are currently developing not on this page.
