SwissCotton BeDry keeps body dry during & after exercise
Jan '09
Hermann Buehler AG launches new yarn SwissCotton BeDry. Textiles made of SwissCotton BeDry are the best choice for people who want to have both, the wearing comfort of cotton and the moisture transfer qualities of synthetics.

Till now not accepted as a performance fiber, new advances in technology bring cotton to the forefront of sports and active-wear. SwissCotton BeDry or US Supima BeDry have the same characteristic as synthetics to wick away moisture, dry faster and reduce negative effects such as clinging to the body when wet.

Using the hydrophobic yarn BeDry on the inner layer of a fabric, moisture is moved away from the skin to the hydrophilic outer side of the fabric. The outer layer spreads the moisture over the fabric surface where it can evaporate quickly. The wearer is kept dry and comfortable.

Finest extra long staple Supima cotton provides softness and highest wearing comfort.
