What are the materials of yoga pants?

Yoga Pants' Best Materials


Cotton fibers are natural hollow fibers; they are soft, cool, known as breathable fibers, and absorbent. Compared with synthetic fiber, cotton is more skin-friendly, soft, and comfortable. If your main concern is comfort, leggings made of cotton are your best choice. However, if you do a lot of stretching, the cotton fabric will deform over time, so it's not ideal for true yoga stretching.

Synthetic fiber

The most common synthetic materials used in yoga pants are nylon, polyester, and spandex, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages. Yoga pants fabrics are often blended with different fibers to achieve different characteristics.

Polyester fabric

It has high strength, good impact resistance, heat resistance, corrosion resistance, decay resistance, acid and alkali resistance, the beam resistance is very good, even after exposing for 1000 hours it has also strong maintenance of 60-70%. The disadvantages are poor moisture absorption, ease to dye, and the fabric is super washable and fast dry, it has good shape preservation, etc.


Polyamide fiber, usually called nylon, has many characteristics: high strength, good elasticity, wear resistance, fatigue resistance, good dyeing performance, alkali corrosion resistance. Compared with polyester fiber fabrics, nylon fabrics feel soft and comfortable, have high comfort, but poor wrinkle resistance. High-grade yoga pants are usually made of nylon.


Spandex (chemical name polyurethane fiber), is a kind of special chemical fiber with high elasticity, its elongation length is up to 500% ~ 800%. Spandex has excellent fatigue resistance and a high elastic recovery rate, and the elasticity is lasting for a long time. A certain proportion of spandex is usually added to the fabric of yoga pants to provide resilience. Our high-end yoga wear fabric uses the world-famous brand-Lycra. Lycra fabric has good elasticity and even elasticity distribution, and the clothes are durable and will not be deformed after repeated training and washing.

In addition, some leggings may be a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers, which helps to combine the best of both fibers. When choosing fabrics, also pay attention to your climate. Heavier fabrics favor cooler temperatures, and lightweight fabrics are ideal for activities like wet or hot yoga.
