Fashion Speak 101- Wicking Fabric

We adore it when clothing makes sense!

Wicking fabrics draw moisture away from the body so that clothes don’t get all wet. The fabrics are made of polyester which absorbs very little water. Wicking polyester has a special cross-section and a large surface area, which picks up moisture and carries it away from our bodies, spreading it out, to evaporate easily on the outside of the fabric.

For the most part, the fabric is used in sports apparel (i.e. running, biking, aerobic, basketball and football clothing). But it also is great for anyone working in a hot kitchen or for the most notable of talking horses in the world, the famous Mr. Ed 😉
