What Is Yoga Wear Fabric?
What is yoga wear fabric? When we do yoga, we wear professional fitness clothes for yoga. The fabric of yoga clothes is a very important selection criterion when we buy yoga clothes. The fabric has a great influence on our comfort when practicing yoga, so we must pay attention to the fabric of yoga clothes.
Yoga is a kind of self-cultivation exercise with relatively strong flexibility. It emphasizes the unity of nature and man, so you can not choose yoga clothes casually. If you choose clothes with poor fabrics, you may tear or deform when doing stretching exercises. This is not only not conducive to practicing yoga, but also affects your mood.
Yoga will make you sweat a lot, which is why we choose yoga to detoxify and reduce fat. Fabrics with good sweat wicking properties can help sweat drain and protect the skin from the toxic and harmful substances contained in sweat. The breathable fabric will not stick to the skin when sweat is discharged, thereby reducing discomfort.
Among so many kinds of fabrics, which one is better?
Yoga Wear Fabric: Nylon
This is the most-selling yoga wear fabric currently on the market. Everyone knows that nylon has outstanding performance in terms of abrasion resistance and elasticity, which fits the required use scenarios of yoga wear. In order to make yoga clothes more elastic, clothing manufacturers will spun 5% to 10% spandex into it when they produce yoga clothes. The price of this type of fabric is not high, and it has achieved good sales in the market with its extremely high cost performance. The advantage of this kind of fabric is that it absorbs sweat and wicks away sweat, has good shapeability, does not ball, and does not deform.
Yoga Wear Fabric: Polyester Fiber
There are still some yoga clothes on the market that are made of polyester or polyester + spandex. Although polyester fiber has good strength and wear resistance, the breathability of yoga clothes made of this fabric is very limited. The yoga clothes made of polyester fiber may not be suitable for the hot summer, but the corresponding price of polyester yoga clothes will be lower than that of nylon. Poor sweat absorption is the biggest disadvantage of this fabric.
Yoga Wear Fabric: Pure Cotton
Pure cotton is also a good choice for the production of yoga clothes, because cotton fabrics have good moisture absorption and breathability. After putting it on, it is soft and comfortable without any sense of restraint. Cotton cloth is very suitable for the production of sports fabrics, but its wear resistance is not as good as nylon and other chemical fiber fabrics. It will shrink or wrinkle more or less after long wear or washing.The price of cotton yoga clothes is higher than the two fabrics mentioned above. The biggest disadvantage of this fabric is that it is easy to pilling and deform.
Yoga Wear Fabric: Bamboo Fiber
At present, viscose fabrics are the most common yoga clothing in the market, because it has the best cost performance in terms of price and comfort. The fabric made of bamboo fiber is indeed good, but it is a little expensive, because it is a pure natural environmentally friendly product. In terms of cost performance, I personally feel that the viscose material is quite comfortable and the price is moderate.
Yoga Wear Fabric: Lycra
At present, the best and most comfortable fabric for sportswear is Lycra. The difference between Lycra and traditional elastic fibers is that Lycra can stretch up to 500% and can be restored to its original shape. In other words, this fiber can be stretched very easily, and it can be close to the surface of the human body after recovery, and the restraining force on the human body is very small.
Lycra fiber can be used with any fabric, including wool, hemp, silk and cotton, to increase the close-fitting, elasticity, and looseness of the fabric, making it more flexible when moving. Moreover, Lycra is different from most spandex yarns. It has a special chemical structure and will not grow mold in a humid and heat sealed space after being wet.
