This heavier weight fabric is perfect for supportive tights or sports bras, and can be used for compression wear as well. Use a flatlock seam for a super-smooth finish.
This subtle purple paisley print has an almost metallic sheen, and is plain grey on the reverse. Printed SORBTEK is a tiny fraction flatter than the unprinted fabric, and ever so slightly stretchier, due to the heat and pressure used in the printing process. However the fabric still retains it's excellent wicking and compression properties!
SORBTEK® catches moisture, moves it away and releases it for quick evaporation. The yarn is breathable, which leaves the wearer cool, dry and comfortable. In addition to moisture management, SORBTEK® offers inherent soil release properties to protect against soil such as sweat and grass.
