Dazzle is a type of polyester fabric that is widely used in making clothes like basketball uniforms, football (both gridiron or association) uniforms, rugby ball uniforms, and casual clothing because it absorbs moisture quickly. It is a lightweight fabric that allows air to circulate easily around the body. Dazzle fabric is distinguished by the pattern of tiny holes in the weave of the material. Often made of synthetic fibers as well as cotton/synthetic blends, dazzle wear is usually sleek and shiny. To the touch, dazzle is soft and somewhat silky, although it is far more sturdy than silk.
