The quick and the dry: Fast-absorbing and quick-drying wool fabrics with good washing durability are fabricated by functionalizing reactive siloxane monolayer on wool fiber surface, followed by grafting an ultrathin silica nanoparticles layer using an in situ growth method. The new properties are maintained even after washing 20 times because of the strong immobilization between the wool fiber and the ultrathin silica nanoparticles through siloxane bonding.
