Optimer Performance Fibers Adds Dri-release® Bamboo

Dri-release® with FreshGuard® — a patented moisture-release technology from Optimer Performance Fibers Inc., Wilmington, Del., that uses a blend of man-made and natural fibers — now includes bamboo as a fiber component option, joining a portfolio of other fibers including cotton, wool, linen, Tencel® and SeaCell®.

In addition to the soft, lightweight and breathable nature of bamboo fibers, their makeup naturally accelerates Dri-release’s moisture transfer, making them ideal for the technology, the company reports. The fibers also take dye quickly, resulting in minimum dyestuff requirements.
