Sportswear brand Jerzees has added another dimension to its new activewaer collection which will feature its SpotShield stain repellent fabric.

Available this autumn in mass retail, the innovative fabrication helps prevent stains by repelling unsightly spills.

Similar technology has been promoted within other apparel categories, but this will be the first season the benefits of SpotShield will be available in fleece activewear in the mass channel.

The stain repellent formula is applied in the manufacturing process, coating each fibre to protect it from potential spills and stains. Most water and oil-based spills such as juice, milk and salad dressing, will bead up and roll off of the garment Jerzees says.
