What makes sport performance fabric unique?

Sport performance fabric is durable, suitable for hot and cold weather patterns, and helps to regulate your body’s temperature from heat and cold when you are training athletically outdoors. Whether in cold or heat, some performance fabrics can whisk away excess sweat, and allow cool air through, or lock in heat to act as a barrier to the cold and wind.

The materials used are usually various forms of polyester, nylon, and spandex. The combination of these synthetic fabrics in the correct amounts, with the right stitch and bonded process make the product successful.  When we are talking about layering, for garments close to the body, many products use a blend of polyester and spandex. The type of stitch and appropriate blend of fabric determines whether the product is for summer or winter use. The blend of polyester and spandex provide stretch, wiking and odor control.
