“Textile maker Miyuki Keori Co. said Monday it has developed a fabric it claims can prevent pollen from clinging to it with the help of nanotechnology, which could be a boon to people with hay fever. The Nagoya-based company, controlled by Miyuki Holdings Co., said it plans to start selling men's winter suits made of the fabric between late August and September. It said a myriad of particles with a diameter of about 30 nanometers are attached to the surface of threads used in the new fabric. One nanometer is a millionth of a millimeter. The nanotechnology was employed in the process of attaching the tiny particles to the threads' surface, Miyuki Keori said, adding the particles help block pollen from getting into gaps on fabric.”
