  • SILVADUR® is proven to be safe against the skin. Tests of bamboo, cotton and polyester treated with 10 times the recommended amount of SILVADUR® found no skin irritation or sensitization after multiple exposures.

  • The unique construction of the fibers greatly increases moisture distribution & holding capacity

  • When cutting, use a sharp knife or scissors as the fabric can easily fray. If you prefer to pre-wash, serge all sides to prevent unraveling of threads

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 Sharp Blades when cutting Microfiber Terry Fabrics
Microfiber terry Plus is a unidirectional knit. It has to be cut using a very sharp blade and one with no nicks or burrs. If not it can fray very easily and seemingly tear apart. That is somewhat like in knits when you pull at one stitch the entire line unravels. Typically it frays when cut from the leading edge. This is the edge where the blade can catch on to one stitch and it gets pulled apart in what looks like a tear. If this happens use a different blade or sharp scissors, and try cutting from the other sides. One edge is typically more fragile and prone to unraveling than the other three. When we cut the MFT Plus for orders we make sure to sharpen the cutter blade first. And if it still gets caught while cutting we use a new blade for cutting. This is also the reason why it is not recommended to pre-wash the fabric before sewing. Fibers from the leading edge can get caught in anything sharp and unravel the fabric completely.

Additional Care Instructions:
  • It is not recommended to pre-wash before sewing. If you prefer to pre-wash, serge (or sew/finish) all open edges to prevent unraveling of threads. However it is recommended to wash before using it.

  • Liquid detergent is preferred over powder because there is a chance that the powder will not dissolve completely and in that case the powder will be stored inside the microfiber. This risk is compounded if cold water is used. Remember, microfibers tend to hold everything, so use half the quantity of detergent you would normally use.

  • Never wash with fabric softeners. The microfiber will accumulate the softeners and over a period of time, will be saturated with it, reducing its efficiency.

  • Never wash the microfiber with other terry or other fabric which has lint. The microfiber will treat lint or any other fibers and dirt particles and store the particles inside the microfiber reducing its efficiency.

  • Do not wash with anything sharp or with anything that has hook tape. Sharp objects can snag the loops and cause them to run. Hook tape will attach to the loops and tear the fabric.

  • Never dry the microfiber in a dryer on high heat. It could actually melt the fibers with excessive heat and lock the traps. Dry on low heat and permanent press is the best setting.
