There are no super absorbent polymers in our fabrics, so they last for a lot longer than other materials
This fabric is the LITE version of our Stay Dry Dimple Silver Fabric
It absorbs ten times its weight in under two seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than materials like bamboo, cotton, or hemp knits.
This fabric doesn’t need to be interlined; you can use it on its own.
The more Zorb layers you use, the more your product can absorb.
Unique, three-dimensional engineered dimple pattern provides greater retention, superior hold, faster distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression
Ready-AbZORB – Our pioneering technology eliminates prewashing and drying normally needed to activate the super absorbency. It also reduces 60-80% of the shrinkage, so you get more fabric for your money.
2 layers will replace 6 layers of flannel, 4 of french terry and 3 of fleece.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
Antimicrobial & Odor Free
Our 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE Silver Fabric contains SILVADUR Antimicrobial, making it harder for bacteria, fungi, or algae to grow on fabric. It also controls odor and acts as an antiperspirant for your fabric.
SILVADUR Antimicrobial is proven safe for skin. It’s been tested on bamboo, cotton, and polyester. To ensure its safety for the skin, ten times the recommended amount was applied to the fabric on several occasions. There were no traces of sensitivity or irritation.
Durable and Reversible
Our reversible fabric gives you two options, which are durable and can hold up under heavy moisture. The fabric’s Zorb 3D fibers are sandwiched between super wicking polyester Stay Dry layers, making the fabric soft and comfortable for the skin.

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.
UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

Important Note about Absorbency in 3D & 4D Zorb fabrics:
These fabrics are designed to be absorbent and made without the use of any chemicals during manufacturing. Our Ready-AbZorb process helps eliminate the need for pre-washing for absorption and also reduces the shrinkage. However the fabrics are made in large batch sizes on industrial machines and sometimes the fabric may not absorb as desired from when you receive it, or sometimes after cutting and sewing. In such cases, we recommend running the fabric through a hot wash and medium dry cycle; this will help remove any handling residues and activate the super absorbent fibers that might have been affected by handling.
