WHAT IS MICROFIBER?
A. Microfiber is the terminology used to describe ultra-fine manufactured fibers and the name
given to the technology of developing these fibers. The fabrics made from these extra-fine fibers
provide a superior hand, and incredible softness that come in cloth, towel, Mop, and many
customizes application such as bath robe, baby towel etc.
B. Many definition about microfiber yarn, but mostly saying in general term that, yarn
which is less than 1 denier. The name microfiber refers to the technology of developing ultra-fine
fibers measuring only 0.006mm in diameter which means 10 times finer than silk, 30 times finer than cotton,
40 times finer than wool, and 100 times finer than human hair. Just one pound of fibers could wrap
around the earth's equator more than 10 times. The diameter or fineness of a continuous or filament fiber—the
lower the number, the finer the fiber, which in turn is more effective for cleaning surfaces.
C. There are four types of synthetic microfibers being produced but state-of-the-art fabrics for Microfibre
cleaning cloths most commonly used in creation of two polymers, that is, nylon and polyester. Polyester is
lyophilic which ensures affinity to dirt and oil while Polyamide (Nylon ) is hydrophilic which ensures water absorption.
