It's very, very thin fibers are half the diameter of a fine silk fiber, one-third the diameter of cotton, one-quarter the diameter of fine wool, and one hundred times finer than human hair. In order to be classified as a microfiber, the fiber must be less than 1 dtex in width. ➝ learn more about microfiber
Microfiber - Design Qualities
Microfiber of good quality is exceptionally soft due to the finely woven materials that make up the composition of the fabric. Microfiber fabrics are generally lightweight, resist wrinkling, have a luxurious drape on the body, retain shape, and resist pilling. They are also relatively strong and durable in relation to other fabrics of similar weight, and they are more breathable and more comfortable to wear.

Due to the special and more advanced features that microfiber has such as the high dimensional stability, less pilling, excellent softness, and drape provide essential advantages that make them durable. Their structure makes them long lasting, and if well cared for can maintain its integrity over 30 washes before the need to replace. When compared to other toweling materials, they are the more economical towel. 

How to Use Microfiber Towels

This makes them useful in many applications of cleaning such as glassware and windows, tv screens and tableware, car detailing and floor cleaning. Proper and often cleaning is required but it will not damage the textile due to the high dimensional stability.
