You must think that cotton is the best fabric, as clothing that are ‘100% cotton’ always seem to be much sought after due to its apparent ‘purity’ of not having components of other materials. However, microfiber is becoming popular these days. It is a type of fabric made of polyester and nylon (polyamide) fibres woven very densely. The fibre strands are so fine, even finer than human hair, and hence its ‘microfibre’ name. However, some microfibre fabrics are constructed from other synthetic materials such as acrylic and rayon. A minimum of 1.0 denier (a unit of measurement to determine the fineness of silk, nylon or rayon) qualifies to be called a microfibre but better ones tend to have smaller deniers, with the 0.13 denier being the utmost superior quality.
You may have heard of microfibre towels and upholstery, but microfiber shirts? If you are sceptical to buy a microfibre top, here are the four benefits that might change your perception:
Do you know why microfibre is used in furniture covers and upholstery? The reason is simple: it can withstand daily wear-and-tear, as well as the rigours of children and domestic pets like cats and dogs. The same principle also applies to the usage of microfibre for the clothing material. Thanks to its durability, microfibre clothing has the ability to last longer if properly cared for.
Given our tropical climate in Malaysia, it is natural that we always look for comfort when purchasing a shirt. Thankfully, microfiber provides the comfort that we really need for. Many athletes love to wear microfibre tops during endurance workouts like jogging and cycling, thanks to its moisture-wicking properties. On the other hand, regular cotton shirts absorb your perspiration and can become heavy when wet.
Believe it or not, your microfiber shirt will always look as if it is just bought from a store no matter how many times you wash and wear it. Microfiber is popularly known for retaining its original shape, on top of staying crisp and fresh all day long.
A shirt made from microfiber has the benefit of being stain-resistant. If someone or yourself has spilt a drink onto your microfiber shirt, rest assured it is less likely to be permanently stained since the stain can be gently wiped away with minimum fuss. Simply do a search online to see how many have had red wine, most notorious for staining, spilt on their microfibre upholstery but have managed to remove the stains easily.
