With the advancement of science and technology, lots of innovative things have been created and the list is getting longer. Its clear example could be a new fabric created by US scientists which has the quality to cool or warm up its wearers. This fabric could be produced and washed just like other materials used in making clothing specially for sportsmen. The study findings have been published in the journal Science.
A team of scientists at the University of Maryland created the fabric. In making the fabric, they have used specially engineered yarn strands coated with metal.
According to the findings, the new fabric is environmentally adaptive that means when weather condition is hot and moist, it can pass out heat. On the other hand, when the environment remains cool and dried, it can hold extra temperature. To be clearer, in hot environment the fibers or yarns used in the fabric expand, reducing the gap between them and preventing heat from escaping. Source : Independent Online
