Natural Sportswear Fabrics

Sportswear fabrics are changing, and the newest fabrics in the business are far superior to fabrics of yesterday. New sportswear textiles are going green, and not only are they good for the environment, but are also excellent at keeping moisture away and keeping you dry. When looking for an eco-friendly option for your next sportswear purchase, look for the following fabrics and all the benefits they have to offer. You’ll find a huge variety of eco-friendly active wear made from the following fabrics that are both stylish and affordable. 

  • Bamboo 

This super renewable resource is getting a lot of attention as one of the most eco-friendly fabrics for performance wear there is. As soft as silk, this durable fabric holds up to even the toughest workouts, keeps you dry, and offers UV protection. It’s great for people with allergies and contains no harmful pesticides and chemicals.  

  • Organic Cotton 

Cotton is one of the most heavily laden chemical crops there is and is full of harmful pesticides and toxic materials. Although great for use as a performance fabric, conventional cotton falls short of taking care of you and the environment. Organic cotton is a far superior choice and is super absorbent, keeping moisture away from your skin when it matters the most. It also protects against heat in the summer and cold in the winter with its natural thermal insulation.  

  • Lyocell 

This fabric is made from wood pulp harvested from trees and is very similar to cotton. This breathable renewable material is strong and durable and completely safe for the environment, and has become very popular as a performance fabric. Both biodegradable and recyclable, Lyocell is eco-friendly and a great addition to the new breed of performance sportswear fabrics.
