Many people generally believe that when buying close-fitting clothes such as T-shirts, shirts, dresses, etc., they must be made of pure cotton (with a cotton content of more than 90%), but this is not the case. Although cotton fabric has strong comfort and excellent moisture absorption and breathability, its anti-wrinkle and shaping properties are poor, and its skin-friendly feel is not excellent.
In order to offset these shortcomings of cotton fabrics, cotton blended fabrics came into being. Among them, cotton-polyester and cotton-nylon fabrics are the best and most widely used.
In the clothing industry, the ingredients ranked at the top are generally the main ones, accounting for more than 50%; the ingredients ranked at the bottom are supplementary, accounting for less than 50%. For example, cotton-polyester fabrics have cotton as the main ingredient and polyester as the supplement. If it is a polyester-cotton fabric, the polyester component is the main component and the cotton component is the supplement. The names are different, and the two fabrics are completely different.
Cotton is a natural, safe, non-toxic and healthy fabric. Whenever it is the main ingredient, the fabric will have greater comfort.
A small amount of polyester is added to cotton to create cotton-polyester fabric. Polyester, also known as polyester fiber, is a chemical fiber component. The characteristic of polyester is that it is not easy to wrinkle and has a very good shaping effect. Most women’s pleated skirts are inseparable from polyester. The fabric is smooth, durable and wear-resistant. Polyester-cotton fabric is widely used in shirts and has a good styling effect.
Compared with polyester, the comprehensive performance of nylon Overall better than polyester.
Cotton nylon is made of pure cotton yarn and nylon yarn interwoven on an air-jet loom. It is an ideal material for making casual wear and fashionable clothes. With the same proportion of cotton blended fabrics, cotton-nylon fabrics are softer and more tender than cotton-polyester fabrics, and are better than cotton-polyester fabrics in terms of skin-friendliness and hand feel.
Cotton and brocade fabrics are widely used in fashion fabrics , such as T-shirts, POLO shirts, dresses, etc., cotton is blended with a small amount of brocade material, which just makes up for the shortcomings of cotton and incorporates the characteristics of brocade, so it is much better than all-cotton fabrics.
In general, cotton and nylon fabrics are relatively It will be more comfortable and practical, but the price will be relatively higher. When we buy clothes, we can look at the fabric composition on the wash water label to understand whether the quality and value of the clothes we buy are proportional, and choose the fabric that suits us best, so that it will be much more comfortable to wear.
