    Soy Fabric

    Mai 10th, 2016

    Soy fabric is a natural man-made fiber that is created from hulls of soy beans that are waste in the food production. Soy fabric is very soft with a silky feel, has a natural elasticity, dries quickly and is comfortable on the skin. It is therefore typically used for sportswear and tight fitting garments that are worn close to the skin. Soy fabric has recently gained strong popularity as it has a very small environmental footprint being bio-degradable and sustainable in production.
