Moisture wicking refers to the process by which moisture is drawn away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric and into the air. Moisture-wicking fabric is specially designed to transfer sweat out of our clothes to be quickly evaporated.
Moisture wicking fabrics have two main characteristics:
- Quickly transferring sweat to the top layer of the fabric
- Quickly drying out the sweat without soaking the fabric
The result is that you’re more comfortable because your body can regulate its temperature efficiently and the fabric touching your skin has a dry, non-stick feel.
The benefit of Moisture Wicking Clothes
The sweat-wicking and quick-drying features make this type of fabric ideal for exercising, outdoor activities such as hiking and trekking, hot and humid climates, and actually for any kind of day if you just want to stay comfortable and dry all day long. You will no longer have to deal with feeling sticky and smelling sweaty while painfully waiting for your clothes to dry!
Fabrics to Avoid
You will want to avoid wearing cotton clothing during any type of physical activity where you will be sweating. Cotton does absorb body moisture quickly but fails to dry quickly enough. This will initially leave your body feeling overly hot and sticky, instead choose a fabric that will wick moisture away from your skin.
