Microfiber is a soft, velvety fabric crafted from synthetic fibers. Microfiber is typically made from polyester, nylon, or a blend of these two materials. In order to be known as microfiber, these fibers must measure less than one denier.

Microfiber is used to make athletic clothing, furniture coverings, and car interiors, lingerie, and sex aids including wrist and ankle cuffs and the coverings of sex furniture and pillows.


More About Microfiber

Microfiber is popular for lingerie and sex aids because it is softer than cotton, more durable than silk, more affordable than leather, and very lightweight. This unique material also wicks away moisture and repels liquids. It’s ideal to be around bodily fluids and lubricants. It’s also easily cleaned with warm water and mild soap. The fabric will keep its shape after repeated washings - and some people say it even feels softer with each wash. It will collect lint though. Because of this, many people prefer to keep their microfiber goods in storage cases when they’re not in use.

Microfiber’s tight weave means that air does not flow through it as easily as other fabrics like cotton. Because of this, vulva-owners who are prone to yeast infections may like to choose microfiber lingerie lined with cotton.

Microfiber lingerie and sex aids are ideal for people with sensitivities because the material is hypoallergenic and free of phthalates.

Many Liberator sex furniture items are made from microfiber material because of its sex-friendly properties.
