What is microfibre?

You’ve seen it everywhere; from mops to furniture, sportswear to towels – but what is microfibre, exactly? And what makes it so versatile? ‘Microfibre’ refers to a synthetic fibre which is extremely thin,
even slimmer than a strand of silk (which is about a fifth of the diameter of a human hair). To be exact, a microfibre must be finer than one denier of thread.
Microfibre can vary in properties dependent on the fibres it’s created from. This results in an incredibly adaptable fabric with plenty of advantages over natural woven materials.
