Before we dive into the different types of fabrics, there combinations and properties. What do you use activewear for? High impact exercises, yoga, walking, indoors or outdoors, do you live in warm or cool climates, do you sweat easily, or do you simply enjoy wearing active wear all the time?

Spandex and Lycra

  • My favorite! It’s soft, expands and recoils to your shape, provides support, allows freedom of movement, breathable, moisture wicking, cooler fabric, and dries quickly. 
  • Machine washable, avoid chlorine bleach and line dry.

    Polyester

    • Durable, stain resistant, wrinkle resistant, lightweight, breathable, and repels UV rays.  But polyester is not quick drying and fosters bacterial growth.
    • Machine washable, tumble dry, will not shrink on low heat.

    Cotton

    • Good for low impact workouts. Warm material, sturdy, breathes well, absorbs moisture - but doesn’t necessarily pull moisture away from the skin.
    • To prevent shrinkage do not wash in high degrees. Avoid tumble drying.
    • Turn your clothes inside out to prevent colors fading when line drying.

    Polypropylene

    • Made from plastic and contains water resistant properties as the moisture evaporates on the surface of the fabric. May be beneficial for high intensity training, excessive sweating and humid climates.

    Recycle Polyester

    • These materials contain recycled materials. 
    • Machine wash. Recycled materials tend to become stiff post washing. Add fabric softener in the end cycle to prevent stiffness to material. Line dry.

    Sustainability in activewear laundering - what you can do:

    1. Use washing machines that have a good energy rating, saving water.
    2. Wash your clothes in cold water.
    3. Buy plant based detergents.
    4. Line dry clothes.
