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 Premium and Soft Microfiber series of compression stockings.
In the Premium 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 Soft Microfiber series consists of a unisex knee highs, thigh highs, pantyhose, and athletic leg sleeves.
Like the fabric itself, you’ll get miles and miles of wear out of the new Microfiber stockings from Allegro.
