a yarn made from filaments of less than one denier per filament or DPF. The filament size in our NM-280 yarn is 35 times smaller than Ballistics cloth, keeping our MemBrain® fabric in the Cervino soft and supple. It will not stand up in the corner.
The name given to both ultra-fine manufactured fibers and to the technology of developing these fibers. 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 cotton, eight times finer than wool, and one hundred times finer than a human hair.
Microfiber is a generic term used to indicate yarns made of filament weighing less than one denier per filament (DPF), most commonly used in creation of nylon and polyester products.
a miniturized bit of polyester which is formed with other bits into a matrix which becomes the base of synthetic leather. The best microfibers come from Europe, although Japan also offers them in varying quality.
Microfiber yarns are ultra-fine, exceptionally soft filaments used to create fabrics that are durable, lightweight, and weather resistant but breathable.
ultra-fine man-made fibers of acrylic, nylon, polyester or rayon, woven into a fabric thatâ€™s soft and supremely drapable
A resilient fiber which is finer than silk, lightweight and breathable.
A type of closely knit smooth fabric often used in shoes
Ultra-fine fibers give polyester microfiber a soft, silky, luxurious hand. Machine washable, it shrugs off wrinkles and is the perfect choice for year-round wear.
The name given to both ultra-fine manufactured fibers and to the technology of developing these fibers. The fabrics made from these extra-fine fibers provide a superior texture, a gentle drape, and incredible softness. It is a man-made fiber that looks and feels good on the skin as it forms to the bodyâ€(tm)s shape. Moisture Wicking Moisture wicking fabrics draw moisture away from the skin. This is a great feature to look for in a sports bra.
Extremely fine synthetic fiber used to produce soft, lightweight fabrics . Microfiber is often defined as fibers of less than 1 denier per filament but the term is used loosely in the industry. May be polyester, nylon, acrylic, rayon or other fibers. Used for rainwear, outerwear and various other types of apparel.
Generic term for any synthetic fiber finer than silk. Fabrics made with microfibers are soft, lightweight, breathable and durable.
Microfibers are man-made ultra fine fibers available in acrylic, nylon, polyester, and rayon. When woven the produce an extremely drapeable, very soft and luxurious fabric ( click here for more info).
A very popular leather alternative consisting of ultra-fine manufactured fibers that are easier to clean and maintain than genuine leather or suede. Microfiber is finer than cotton and even silk, and offers superior hand and softness.
Shortened form of the term "microdenier fiber", with "denier" being a measure of fiber size. Microfiber is a synthetic fiber, which is extremely fine and can be spun from polyester, nylon, rayon, acetate, or a combination of these. It can be blended with natural fibers to produce a strong durable fabric that is soft and water-resistant.
A new polyester fiber that is extremely fine and closely duplicates the look and feel of natural fibers. These yarns produce supple, drapeable fabrics with a silk-like hand. Because of their inherent strength properties, they can be napped or sanded to produce a suede-like surface. Their fabrics achieve superior color and clarity.
A woven fabric that is made of synthetic yarn that is thinner than a standard strand of silk yarn.
An ultrafine fiber of less than 1.0 denier per filament or 0.1 tex per filament, or having a diameter less than 10 microns. Microfiber is used to produce ultrasoft, lightweight fabrics.
Microfiber is a term used for ultra-fine, man-made fibers, as well as the name given to the technology of developing these fibers. The knit and woven fabrics made from these fibers provide a gentle drape, luxurious hand, incredible softness and are finer than most silks. These fabrics can be "sanded", "peached" or "mossed" to enhance their luxurious qualities. There are four types of microfiber being produced today. These include Acrylic, Nylon, Polyester and Rayon.
A Material that is made of extremely fine synthetic fiber. Fabrics made with microfibres are exceptionally soft, hold their shape well and are lightweight.
The secret to softness. Microfiber yarns are made of filament weighing less than one denier per filament (DPF). The ultra-fine filaments create an extra-soft, silky yarn. Most commonly used in nylon and polyester products.
Lightweight and breathable cloth made of polyester or nylon used in a lot of sports clothing.
One of the most recently developed weaves in which fibers (usually man-made) are tightly woven/compressed resulting in a very smooth, supple fabric with a silky hand, velvety drape and natural water-repellency.
very fine fibers, which give a unique appearance and soft hand. Microfiber fabrics are generally lightweight, resilient and resist wrinkling. They have a luxurious drape and the body retains its shape and resists pilling. They are also very strong and durable.
Soft, lightweight fabric with a silky feel. Microfiber is shrink-resistant, durable and provides protection against the wind, rain and cold.
Fabric made with microfiber means that the fabricâ€(tm)s filaments are extremely fine â€“ much finer than silk. microfiber fabrics are thus light-weight, and look and feel luxurious. Because microfiber filaments can be packed so closely, they can prevent moisture from passing though, yet allow air flow.
An extremely fine synthetic fiber usually woven into soft, light weight, washable, breathable fabrics.
A FINE SYNTHETIC FIBER WOVEN INTO A FABRIC THAT IS SOFT AND BREATHABLE.
This synthetic upholstery fabric is washable, breathable, and water repellant.
Soft, lightweight, breathable and durable synthetic fiber; finer denier than silk.
A fiber with an extremely small diameter. In the case of polyester, .9 denier polyester is considered to be a microfiber.
Very fine filament or staple fiber used to produce lightweight, soft fabrics.
A fine synthetic fiber woven into lightweight, washable and breathable fabrics that hold shape extremely well.
Also known as Cashmere Twill. This is a very lightweight synthetic fabric with the texture and drape of natural-fiber cloth. It is essentially reversible, with a low sheen "wrong" side and a soft nap "right" side. By default, we sew with the nappy side out, as it has an extremely nice texture.
A fabric that's tightly woven from a very fine poly thread and has a suede like finish. Microfiber fabric is water repellent due to its construction process and when specially treated it can also be waterproof. Find microfiber living room furniture.
For sleeping bag shell material, a tightly woven polyester or nylon. Not as water-resistant as coatings or membranes, but lighter and less costly.
A synthetic material, usually woven polyester. Many performance fabrics are made of microfiber.
A tightly woven fabric that's extremely lightweight and soft; notable for its wind and water resistance, ability to wick moisture and quick dry time

Usually a blend of rayon and polyester, this special fabric weave boasts optimum comfort and durability. It's also machine washable. However, its rise to popularity can be attributed to its silk-like look and feel.
An extremely fine synthetic fiber that makes cloths soft, lightweight washable and breathable.
1. A fibre or filament of linear density below approximately 1 decitex. Note 1: For glass and other mineral fibres see definition 2 below. Note 2.. Some commercial fibres as coarse as 1.3 decitex are classified as microfibres by their producer. Note 3: Fibres finer than approximately 0.2 decitex are sometimes referred to as 'ultra-fine fibres' or 'ultra-fine microfibres'.(See also bicomponent fibre, Note 3.) 2. (Glass and other manufactured mineral fibres) A fibre or filament of thickness less than approximately 3 microns (gm).
Microfiber is fiber with strands less than one denier. Fabrics made with microfibers are exceptionally soft and hold their shape well. They are also used for some cleaning applications, because of their exceptional ability to absorb oils.
