Blending elastane with other fabrics creates a more stable, durable garment. Adding it to a fabric also provides a higher level of comfort, a longer shelf life, and a better resistance to perspiration and body oils.
A synthetic fiber that features quick drying time, high strength, abrasion resistance, and crease resistance; frequently blended with cotton, rayon, or other synthetics.
Rayon (or Viscose) is a manufactured regenerated cellulose fiber. Because it is produced from naturally occurring polymers, it is neither a truly synthetic fiber nor a natural fiber; it is a semi-synthetic fiber. Rayon fabrics are soft, smooth, cool, comfortable, and highly absorbent, but they do not insulate body heat, making them ideal for use in hot and humid climates.
