Viloft transports moisture away from the body and it's anti-microbial action inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Viloft's flat fibre cross-section gives it excellent thermal insulation properties. The modified cross-section creates air chambers in the fabric that acts as a buffer against the cold.
Viloft fabrics offer up to 30% higher thermal insulation than cotton fabrics. A small percentage of Viloft is enough to make a significant difference in garment warmth.
