Just the mention of a wool sweater makes me itchy. For many people with chronic itchy skin conditions such as eczema, irritating fabrics like wool and polyester can trigger itching over their whole body. Now some (entrepreneurial) dermatologists have developed clothes designed to protect the skin.
[They] developed a new kind of T-shirt fabric, called Derma Smart, that relieves the itch from dry skin diseases like eczema. The fabric is unique in that it glides over the skin’s surface, it’s also specially constructed, so that the seams are on the outside. Derma Smart is made of microfiber. It dries faster and uses small amounts of silver to prevent bacteria buildup.
