What is Microfiber?
Microfiber is a synthetic yarn in which each of its fibers is approximately 1/20th the diameter of a strand of silk, 100 times finer than a human hair. Microfiber is made from a blend of polyester (the scrubbing and clinging material), and polyamide (a nylon by-product, the absorbent and quick-drying material). These materials are split then combined during the manufacturing process, creating a fiber with significantly increased surface area. The increased surface area along with the structure of the combined fibers gives microfiber its special cleaning abilities.
