UV radiation is an invisible part of sunlight associated with suntans, sunburns, premature ageing, and skin cancer. The sun-protection properties of a woven or knit fabric are dependent upon the transmission, absorption, and reflection of UV radiation. The fiber type, dye, construction, and finished determine these characteristics. Our UPF-rated garments offer very good UV protection from prolonged exposure to the sun.
