Various Types hollowfibre & Microfibre fillings

What is Hollowfibre Filling?

Hollowfibre is made from polyester, it's made from the fine, hollow strands of the polyester. The hollow centre traps air and helps to provide the 'left feeling'. It's lightweight, warm, machine washable and as it breathable due to the spaces, it makes it non-alllergenic. It Provides a lofty comfort and resists dust mites and can be used in a variety of products such as bedding, upholstery, toy filling, arts and craft, etc. The hollow fibre is a man made syntehtic fibre. A chemical manufacturing process creates threads which are then spun into denser filling to use to stuff pillows, duvets, cushions and toys.

What is Microfibre Filling?

Microfibre filling is very similar to Hollow fibre filling, it was originally developed as an affordable alternative to luxurious down duvets for use on top hotels. It is manufactured using a fine denier (Denier is a measure used in fabrics to define the liner density of a particular fabric) of polyester fibre and s specific length engineered to create the precise dimensions of real down (fluffy feathers found at the bottom or on the belly of a bird. Microfibres are very fine fibres which are tightly woven and without the hollow space. Microfibres offer a better warmth, are silky, mor elightweight than hollowfibre and soft feeling, and mostly come treated with anti-allergy coating.

Is Microfibre Filling better then Hollowfibre Filling?

So, which is better? Personally the whole debate about Hollowfibre v Microfibre is of personal choice. Microfibre filling is soft and silky, replactes the sensation for Down but at a cheaper price, easy to wash, ideal for allergy sufferers and children. Hollow Fibre Filling feels springy and lofty and lightweight. Machine Washable, ideal for allergy sufferers and children. The biggest difference being the structure of the fibres, Hollowfibre has spaces making it lighter and breathable, and Microfibre has minimal space between them, making them silkier and warmer.

What are hollowfibre and microfibre fillings used for?

Hollowfibre and microfibre fillings are used in a vast variety of products that we use everyday. Quits and Duvets upholstery fillings are amongst the top uses, manufacturers use both hollowfibre and microfibre for quilts. Hollowfibre is also used in Pillows, Cushions, Floor Cushions, teddy bear stuffing, toy stuffing, dog beds, cat beds, pet beds and for general arts and crafts.
