What is Moisture Wicking?
Moisture-wicking is when a fabric actively pulls moisture away from the skin.
How Moisture-Wicking Fabrics Work
Moisture-wicking fabrics have the ability to actively and effectively pull your body’s moisture away from your skin. These fabrics are constructed to transport the moisture through capillary action. Capillary action is when water is drawn upward from the skin towards the surface of the fabric, keeping you cool and dry when you start to sweat.
Which Fabrics Are Moisture-Wicking?
Jofit uses many different fabrics that are moisture-wicking. We understand how important it is to feel your best while golfing, playing tennis or working out.
Jersey, UV Jersey & Jacquard
Jofit uses Jersey, UV Jersey and Jacquard for all performance styles. These fabrics contain polyester. Polyester is a synthetic fiber that has many moisture-wicking capabilities. The nature of this fiber is to draw water to the outside, instead of absorbing it, ultimately resisting the penetration of water. Since the moisture is drawn to the exterior of the fabric, it makes it easier to evaporate. This is what helps keep you dry when you start to sweat!
Why Choose Moisture-Wicking Fabric?
Moisture-Wicking fabrics help keep your body dry when it starts to sweat and promotes evaporative cooling! Evaporative cooling is a process that naturally keeps our body temperature within a comfortable range during physical activity that causes you to overheat.
Using moisture-wicking fabrics during these kinds of activities is essential because moving moisture away from our skin is critical to staying cool.
Golf is a sport that can be played in many different temperatures but is most popular when it is warm! Golf requires much focus and attention in order to be successful, so minimal distractions is key. Jofit’s moisture-wicking performance fabrics are key for a sport like Golf because they allow for these minimal distractions, keeping you cool and dry throughout your entire round on the course. The synthetic fibers within these fabrics work consistently to move moisture to the outside of the skin, allowing it to evaporate… and allowing you to have your best swing!
Tennis is a workout that usually lets you get a great sweat in! However, Jofit’s moisture-wicking performance fabrics make it a comfortable sweat! Our tops have moisture-wicking capabilities that push your sweat to the exterior of the fabric, allowing it to evaporate quickly. This not only keeps you dry, but also regulates your body temperature, keeping it in a comfortable range while you run back and forth chasing the ball!
Moisture-wicking fabrics help the body stay dry when it starts to sweat during exercise or any other types of excursion! Running, hiking, biking and many other physical activities are not as enjoyable when drenched in sweat! Moisture-wicking performance fabrics allow the sweat to be pushed to the outside of your skin and evaporate easily, keeping you cool and dry during any kind of activity. Comfort is key when getting in a good workout!
How to Care for Moisture-Wicking Clothing
Jofit’s fabrics are machine washable. The most important thing to remember is not to use fabric softener on moisture-wicking fabrics (liquid or dryer sheet from).
The fabric softeners lay down a waxy residue on the surface of the fabric that interferes with the moisture-wicking capabilities.
