Izod Develops Golf Shirt Using Cotton Incorporated's Moisture-Management Technology
"Now we can make cottons that literally pull moisture from the skin through the inside of the fabric to the outside," said William A. Rearick, director, Textile Chemistry Research, Cotton Incorporated. "This keeps the skin and the inside of the fabric dryer. At the same time, we reduce the tendency for the fabric to cling to the skin by 50 percent or more. Moisture spreads on the outside of the fabric so it takes less time to dry. All this without hurting the breathability of cotton. So in the dry state, we maintain the natural properties that make cotton so comfortable and popular to start with."
The new line of shirts hits Izod retail stores across the country in July, and is available in four colors mango, clover, blueberry and black.
