What is Nanofibra by Fulgar?

Fabrics with an incredibly soft texture and a silken appearance can be made from this new yarn without any need to sacrifice the valuable mechanical features and resistance to abrasion so frequently associated with fabrics made from traditional multifilaments.

In addition, the incredibly high number of filaments used to make Nanofibra means that moisture is rapidly wicked away.
