Microfibre Towels Fabric
Microfibre fabric is often used for athletic wear, such as cycling jerseys, because the microfiber material wicks moisture (perspiration) away from the body, keeping the wearer cool and dry. Microfiber is also very elastic, making it suitable for undergarments. However, the US Marine Corps banned synthetic fabrics for wear with uniforms while deployed to combat environments in 2006, due to instances where Marines’ undergarments were melting under extreme heat caused by IED (improvised explosive device) blasts, causing more damage to the skin. They released a “fit for duty” version authorized earlier that same year.
Microfiber is also used to make tough, very soft-to-the-touch materials for general clothing use, often used in skirts and jackets. Microfiber can be made into Ultrasuede, an animal-free imitation suede leather-like product that is cheaper and easier to clean and sew than natural suede leather.
Microfiber fabric can be used for making bathrobes, towels, wash flannels, jackets, swim trunks, and other clothing that can be worn for aquatic activities such as swimming.
