What is Sustainable Fashion? Be Educated
  Drirelease Performance Fiber from Optimer
drirelease is a unique blend of patented fibers.
drirelease is an optimal blend of hydrophobic (water hating) and multi-staple, multi-denier, hydrophilic (water loving) fiber.

drirelease® is an engineered yarn, which uses an optimal microblend of natural and synthetic fibers, combining the best qualities of both.

drirelease Performance Fabric is ideal for:

  • Superior Moisture Wicking – This unique blend is made of hydrophobic (water-hating), synthetic fibers and hydrophilic (water-loving), natural fibers. This unique combination efficiently grabs moisture away from the skin and pushes it to the outside of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. Clothing made with drirelease feels soft and stays dry.

  • Permanent Performance – The drirelease moisture-transport system is built into the yarn and delivers everlasting wicking that won't wash out.
