Sometimes Less is More

Innovation lies at the core of everything we do at Universal Fibers®...

But in order to cultivate the change we crave, we need to continually evaluate our behaviors, processes, and mindsets in order to think outside the box and bring new ideas to the table.  

For over 50 years, our expert team has been unveiling unique innovations for solution-dyed fibre. It’s these decades of experience that continually inspire us to come up with exciting discoveries that change the interior design game.

One of our favourite innovations puts a clever twist on the concept that ‘less is more’ - or, as we like to call it, High Bulk | Low Weight.

 A result of years of research and development, our exclusive finishing capability we've dubbed “High Bulk | Low Weight”, blends our longstanding technical expertise with our proprietary technology. As the name suggests, it offers a highly bulked fibre with voluminous coverage for tufting at lower weights. This texture feature also gives a distinctly luxurious look that stands out from everything else on the market.

Our proprietary bulking technology, paired with our exclusive 667 dtex building block, allows you to enjoy full coverage with approximately 20% less fiber. With its incredible texture and low mass, this revolutionary finishing capability is in a league of its own within the industry.

Why It’s A Big Deal

Technicality aside, High Bulk | Low Weight offers so much more than an appealing aesthetic.

Those seeking cost-effective fibre solutions will appreciate the cost benefits of our High Bulk | Low Weight products. Lower weights mean less carpet fibre needed per square meter and lower shipping costs, making dream projects more attainable. 

In addition, environmentally-conscious individuals can rest assured they’re making a greener choice with High Bulk | Low Weight. A lower fibre content requires less energy during the production process, which reduces the use of non-sustainable resources and overall CO2 emissions. 

Weight reduction also comes with long-term benefits post-production, especially when it comes to care and maintenance. With less fibre to deal with, cleaning becomes much easier and faster. You’ll get to enjoy lower effort cleans and faster drying times, so you can get back to doing the things that matter most.


Defying Gravity

Interested in seeing tangible examples of this cutting-edge finish? Intrinsic™ and Harmonize™ are two of our exclusive sustainable fibres that utilize this patented high-bulking technology. Both provide outstanding coverage while boasting a featherlight weight, and naturally come with a lower carbon footprint as a result.

Universal Fibers Harmonize and Intrinsic finishes

A perfect marriage of colour

Harmonize™ brings together a rainbow of colors to create a harmonious heathered mélange effect yarn. This stunning finish combines multiple lightweight ends through our specialized blending techniques to create a soft yet eye-catching look.


Delicate distinctness

If you prefer a more distinct colour contrast, our Intrinsic™ fibre finish blends a selection of our fine denier solid colours to best highlight each hue. The end result is a multi-tonal yarn with highlighted colour accents that exude elegance.


Both Harmonize™ and Intrinsic™ are available now in Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6. These finishes will be perfect for anyone who, like us, believes that less is more. With less fiber, you’ll get to enjoy low weight carpet objectives with higher levels of sustainability, value for money, and ease of care.
