Glass Fiber Gortex Guanaco
       

Glass Fiber

A manufactured fiber in which the fiber-forming substance is glass. Specially prepared glass marbles are melted in a furnace. The melted glass is then extruded through tiny orifices to form continuous filaments and then drawn out to the desired size.

Gore-Tex®

A lightweight, durable synthetic fiber used as a tissue filler. First introduced in 1978, Gore-Tex fabric is created by laminating a patented Gore-Tex membrane to high-performance textiles, which are used by authorized garment manufacturers to make outerwear, accessories, and footwear. The Gore-Tex membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, too small for water and wind to pass through. These same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so perspiration is able to escape so the wearer doesn’t get clammy and uncomfortable. A Gore-Tex garment is considered “waterproof and breathable.”

Guanaco

GuanacoThe fleece hair from the guanaco, a relatively rare cross breed of the llama and alpaca. The fleece is very fine and silky and ranges in color from reddish brown to white.
