TAIWAN: Everest develops "world's lightest fabric"
Taiwan's Everest Textile has developed what it claims to be "the lightest and finest fabric in the world."
The Ever Ultra Light Weight 5 denier is also dubbed "The Emperor's new clothes" because it gives wearers the feeling of not wearing any clothes, Everest says.
The material was developed in response to demand for lighter weight clothing, but is also said to be windproof and resistant to light rain as well as having high abrasion and high tear strength.
Ever Ultra Light Weight 5 denier is recommended for sports and casual wear such as running and cycling jackets, travel clothing, down coats and even sleeping bags and tents.
