What is Microfiber?
Microfiber, as the name suggests, is an extremely thin man-made fiber that can be spun, woven, or knitted into a wide variety of textile products. The unit of measurement for fibers is known as “denier,” which is equal to the weight of one gram per 9,000 meters of fiber length. Microfiber is defined as any fiber that measures one denier or less, which is equivalent to approximately 1/20th the diameter of silk or 1/100th the diameter of a human hair. Products constructed of microfiber are soft to the touch, non-abrasive, lightweight, and durable—and can be either water-repellent or ultra-absorbent, depending on the construction.
