Polyacryl belongs to the group of chemical fibres of synthetic origin.

They were produced in 1930 for the very first time. These synthetic fibres are produced through the polymerisation process and are made of polyacrylonitrile. They’re spun using the dry and wet spin process (not melted).

Properties of Polyacrylic:
- Similar to polyester
- Good light-resistance -
Haptic is closest to natural fibres, feels similar to wool (good to mix with wool / cotton)
- Light
- Resistant to acids and lye
- Heat-sensitive
- Very good to colour
- Doesn’t shrink
- Electrostatic
- Moisture absorption of up to 35%
- Dries quickly
