According to a Swiss study, a thinner polyester or wool blend wicks away sweat more efficiently than cotton or 100% wool does.
Moisture-wicking fabrics can be made of a variety of materials, including natural fabrics like wool or silk, synthetic and natural blends, or man-made synthetic fibers such as polyester, polypropylene, and other unique “brand” fabrics used by a variety of different companies (for example, Nike Dri-Fit).
Workout clothing made with moisture-wicking fabrics can help keep you cool, dry, and comfortable when you exercise, allowing you to exercise longer and more effectively, whether in a hot or cold climate. Given their ability to lift moisture from the skin’s surface, wearing moisture-wicking clothes in the summer can provide a drying effect while preventing overheating from occurring. In the cold winter months, wearing moisture-wicking fabrics are effective for both controlling moisture and providing an additional layer of insulation.
There are dozens of companies that offer moisture-wicking T-shirts, jerseys, and lined shorts, in a price range that will accommodate your budget.
