An improved dryer fabric, woven entirely from monofilament plastic polymeric warp and weft strands, having a lower permeability to air flow and lower modulus of elasticity than normal fabrics, wherein at least the warp strands are flattened in cross-section, with the long axis of the flattened section extending parallel to the plane of the fabric and wherein the weft strands may be shaped so as to more or less conform to the horizontally directed passages of the mesh naturally formed by the woven warp strands and may also be relatively more malleable than the warp strands so that under stress they can adapt to conform to the shape of mesh interstices thereby to restrict these and still further reduce the permeability.
