This fantastic man-made fiber is approximately the same size as a human hair. In order to make a microfiber cloth is made when bundles of these minute fibers are spun into yard or thread which is then used to make a knitted sheet. The tiny microfiber bundles are split into even smaller single fibers which are about 1% of the size of a human hair. To ensure that the microfiber towel or cloth doesn’t crumble to pieces, a combination of carefully selected chemicals, heat and agitation is used in the fiber splitting procedure. So despite the fact that microfiber seems more delicate than other materials, it is in fact more resilient and make the fiber more absorbent than cotton fibers.
