What Is Microfiber?

Microfiber is a synthetic fiber, usually polyester or nylon, that is less than one denier in thickness.  What’s a denier you ask?  Denier is a measure of linear density.  A 1 denier filament that is 9,000 meters long (approx 5.6 miles) weighs one gram, or .03 ounces.

Extremely soft and elastic, microfibers are also very durable and stain resistant.  They wick moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer cool and dry.

Microfibers are used to make cleaning products, insulation, basketballs, car interiors, and when twisted together, they form yarns that can be woven into textiles and clothing like the new Allegro Jazz and Rumba series of compression stockings.

In the Jazz series, microfibers are combined with cotton and spandex to make a luxuriously soft men’s support dress sock. Available in two compression levels and four colors.

The Rumba series consists of a closed toe 15-20mmHg knee high, an open toe/heel support knee high 20-30mmHg, and an 18-24mmHg compression leg sleeve.

Life the fabric itself, you’ll get miles and miles of wear out of the new Microfiber stockings from Allegro.
