Our DryLite Microfibre is a knitted fabric consisting of a blend of 70% Polyester and 30% Polyamide (Nylon) to create a suede like finish where the surface is mechanically processed to produce an extra soft plush feel. It has low bulk to create a compact and lightweight towel that is super absorbant.
A Microfiber is a synthetic fiber that measures less than 1 denier, or approximately 1/5 of a human hair. The fibres are then split to create deep channels along its length that give it an enormous surface area, which results is a fabric that can be ten times more absorbent than cotton. Synthetic microfibres can easily be wrung out and dry very quickly. Due to hydrogen bonding, microfibre cloth containing polyamide absorbs and holds more water than other types of fibres.
