Why Our Designers Love Q-skin

Sweaty Betty Assistant Yoga Designer and qualified yoga instructor, Charlotte Howe, talks Q-skin and why it’s revolutionised this seasons Yoga Statement line. Here’s what she had to say, “The biggest benefit to Q skin fabric is that it is an anti-bacterial yarn, as opposed to a finish. This means silver ions are actually imbedded into the yarn even before the garment is knitted, so no matter how much you wear and wash the garment its anti-bacterial qualities will never diminish. For me this makes a real difference to my daily practice and means the clothes I love to wear for Yoga remain truly functional forever. I can practice in the morning before work, sweat it out and know my vest won’t stink even if I can’t wash it until the evening. My ultimate Q-skin piece this season has to be the Chaturanga Yoga Cami. It comes in two beautiful shades, is seamless and extra-long, with a nice higher neck line, plus bra and posture support. It’s the perfect functional Yoga top."
