Wicking fibers are made to
improve the flow of moisture in a fabric by capillary wicking. 4DG™ wicking fibers are the newest, most exciting
development in moisture transport fiber technology. 4DG™ fibers are ideal
wicking fibers because they have
multiple capillary grooves in the surface of each wicking fiber.
Wicking fibers allow quicker evaporation for comfort in activewear, or
they can add
increased absorbency to a wipe, or better acquisition and distribution in
a diaper. Fiber
Innovation Technology specializes in making 4DG™
wicking fibers in staple and filament forms, as well as other specialty fibers and filaments.
