UV Protection Technology
Enjoy all day protection from the sun's harmful rays with densely woven fabrics or garments treated with a special finish.
- Reduces the risk of sun burn or skin damage
- Comfortable to wear
- Reduces the amount of exposed skin
- Reduces the quantity of sun cream applied
Tight densely woven fabrics reduces spaces between fibres, blocking out more UV Radiation than fabrics with a loose or open weave. The smaller the holes between the threads the less ultraviolet light can reach your skin.
High UPF Fabric
- Merino Wool
Low UPF Fabric
Chemical UV absorbers and reflectors can be applied during the dyeing process, during fibre manufacture or in the final fabric finish.
The type and concentration of a dye can affect a fabric’s UPF rating. The Higher the concentration of dye, the darker the garment becomes, absorbing more UV rays than lighter colours.
