If you're not familiar with synthetic fabrics, you may be surprised to learn that items made with TACTEL offer several benefits. TACTEL is said to dry eight times faster than cotton, but it is at least twice as soft as most other fibres. TACTEL is lightweight and breathable, making it appropriate for many different types of clothing. In addition, this fabric is three times as resilient as comparable natural fibres. In fact, TACTEL is rapidly becoming a viable alternative to cotton.
