A method of enclosing polymer additive materials in microscopic capsules, which can then be released under certain conditions to enhance performance properties.
The temperature and humidity of the space between your skin and the base layer of clothing.
One of the most important developments in spinning man-made fibers is the technology of microdeniers where continuous filament fibers emerge from a spinnerette less than one denier per filament in weight. This makes polyester, nylon, acrylic, or rayon, thinner than a silkworm’s web, which is one denier per filament. by comparison, a human hair is generally 2 to 4 deniers…
The name given to ultra-fine manufactured fibers and the name given to the technology of developing these fibers. Fibers made using microfiber technology, produce fibers which weigh less than 1.0 denier. The fabrics made from these extra-fine fibers provide a superior hand, a gentle drape, and incredible softness. Comparatively, microfibers are two times finer than silk, three times finer than…
A soft, luxorous fabric with a velvety feel.
A unit of measure that describes the average staple fiber diameter in a lot of wool. Over the past 30 years, the Micron measurement has evolved to become the predominant term used commercially to describe the fineness of a wool fiber. A Micron is determined by the actual measurement when the wool lots are tested for sale during wool processing.…
A coating on a fabric that breathes through microscopic pores.
A weave that is tighter than lightweight, which combines warmth and wickability.
A fabric having many thin stripes.
A natural dyestuff made from minerals, including ocher, limestone, manganese, cinnabar, azurite, and malachite
