Could I use this blend successfully for upcycled longies? with an extra soaker layer?

80 percent rayon 20 percent nylon

Re: Upcycle longies advice please

any upcycle material has to be at least 80% wool, like lambs wool, merino, ,
poly, rayon, nylon will all wick I've only seen wool and fleece be used for upcycling
the thrift stores and goodwill, are your best friends especially this time of year when everyone is spring cleaning lol try to get wool that's soft and not rough feeling and medium weight if you get some like merino {looove merino} it's thinner but can be felted and you can always add a soaker thru the wet zone

Rayon is cellulose-based, so it is absorbent, not repellent.
You could use it in fitteds.
