The fiber is complementary in blends with other fibers and is not generally used on its own. In blends with Cashmere or wool it improves hang and drape qualities, giving a superior luster to the product and helping to reduce rubbing/pilling. It is possible to use the fiber 100% in yarns.
Absorption properties are similar to cotton and so the fiber feels cool. Its ventilation is superior to that of cotton with a silk-like appearance. The fiber is anti-ultraviolet and therefore, retains dyed colors well and is superior to viscose and silk in this respect. It is stronger than wool, cotton and silk but not polyester.
