The name "brushed" comes from the treatment with what the fabric properties are achieved. The soft and stretchy fabric is treated with a mechanical brushing process in which fine, metal brushes carefully rub the textile to produce fine fibers from the woven yarns, resulting in extra softness on the surface of the fabric.
Brushing method is often used in high quality cotton apparel such as sweatshirts and joggers, but when used on a stretchy Nylon Spandex blend activewear fabrics, it results in super soft, almost velvety-feeling stretchy and comfortable clothing that caresses you skin while still offering that functional stretch and compression that you want in activewear.
Our Zeebra™ brushed leggings, sports bras and tops feel soft, buttery and kind to skin. In comparison to other fabrics they have a slightly thicker feel to them too.
