You've seen it everywhere; from mops to furniture, sportswear to towels - but what exactly is microfiber? And what makes it so versatile? 'Microfiber' refers to a synthetic fiber that is extremely thin, even thinner than a strand of silk (about one-fifth the diameter of a human hair). Hence micro! Microfiber can vary in properties depending on the fibers from which it is made. This results in an incredibly adaptable fabric with numerous advantages. Microfiber is also known as microfiber.
What is microfiber made of?
The most common type of synthetic material that microfiber is made of is polyester. Polyester itself is extracted from crude oil. Microfiber towels are made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. New technology now allows polyester to be replaced with rPET: recycled polyester from PET bottles. In doing so, our SooBluu microfiber beach towels have a ratio of 80/20 recycled polyester to polyamide. This is the highest quality, which means the microfiber towels absorb water tremendously well, dry quickly and are extra strong. And another great advantage: anti-bacterial. In addition, the SooBluu microfiber towels are made of a special fiber so that they are extra soft.
