Microfibre generally consists of very fine Nylon or Polyester filaments used to produce light, soft and breathable fabrics.
This manufactured fibre is very strong and is resistant to both abrasion and damage from many chemicals. It is elastic, some may say even “springy” and is quite lustrous. It returns easily to its original shape and is non-absorbent. It is fast drying, resistant to some dyes, resistant to creasing and resistant to moths and other insects, water, perspiration and standard drycleaning agents. It is readily washable and is not damaged by sunlight or weather.
Truly an impressive man-made addition to the textile industry.
