140-150 g/m2 | 100% Polyester | Warp-Knit Trico
Dazzle is a type of polyester fabric that is widely used in making sports uniforms and even casual clothing because it absorbs moisture quickly. It is a lightweight fabric that allows air to circulate easily around the body. Dazzle is becoming increasingly popular in sports uniforms and even casual clothing. Dazzle fabric is usually sleek and shiny. To the touch, dazzle is soft and somewhat silky, although it is far more sturdy than silk.

Dazzle fabric does not stain very easily. Laundering a garment that is made of dazzle fabric on the normal cycle is usually sufficient to keep the garment in top condition. Ironing is not required because dazzle fabric is virtually wrinkle free. Compared to other fabrics, dazzle is even more durable than denim because of the tightly woven polyester fibres, which make it nearly impossible to tear.

Ideal for Rugby

Micro Fibre Twill
110-115 g/m2 | 100% Polyester | Woven/Twill

Microfiber refers to an ultra-fine fibre that can be woven or knit into a very high quality fabric construction. One important characteristic of microfiber fabrics is that they can be woven so tightly that the fabric can’t be penetrated by wind or rain. Microfibers also have a wicking ability that allows perspiration to pass through the fabric.

Benefits of microfibers:

* Ultra-fine – finer than the most delicate silk
* Luxurious – very soft, feels like silk or suede
* Washable, dry cleanable
* High strength and shrink-resistant
* Comfortable – offers insulation and breath-ability

 

Micro Stretch
Micro Stretch has a 2-way stretch characteristic, and has the same advantages as all polyester fibers including a very quiet and soft hand. The material is wrinkle-resistant, is a comfortable fabric, and has good wind and water resistance. The stretch fibre offers comfort and allows freedom of movement. The fabric dries quickly and prints very well, making it also popular for dye sublimation.

This fabric is used in all athletic markets, from shorts to golf wind shirts and workout pants. It is also used in the extreme (ultimate) fighting shorts.
