Clothing fabric knowledge

In the world of clothing, the fabrics of clothing are varied and changing with each passing day. But in general, high-quality, high-end fabrics are mostly comfortable to wear, sweat-absorbing, breathable, drape and stiff, visually noble, and soft to the touch. And do you know the shortcomings and precautions of those fabrics? The last issue introduced some advantages of clothing fabrics. In this issue, the editor will share with you some disadvantages and precautions for maintenance.

01.natural fiber

Natural fibers are divided into two categories: plant fibers, animal fibers.

Among them, plant fibers mainly include: cotton, hemp, and bamboo.

Disadvantages of cotton: high shrinkage, poor elasticity, easy to wrinkle, good shape retention of clothing, easy to mildew, slight fading, not acid-resistant

Matters needing attention: clothing and cotton cloth should be moisture-proof and mildew-proof during storage and storage; it should not be exposed to the sun for a long time.

Disadvantages of hemp: easy to wrinkle and fade
Precautions are: do not scrub hard, do not twist, avoid sun exposure

Disadvantages of bamboo: easy to break
Precautions: wash with the foam, wash with low temperature and gentle water, do not twist, avoid exposure to the sun.

The animal fibers mainly include silk, wool, leather, and velvet.

Disadvantages of silk: not resistant to sweat, wear, high temperature, easy to hang silk, easy to fade and yellow, easy to become brittle.
Precautions are: low temperature and gentle washing, use professional lotion, and dry in the shade.

Disadvantages of wool: easy to shrink, poor heat resistance
Matters needing attention: dry clean, dry in the shade
The leather is divided into two types: genuine leather (pig skin, cowhide, sheepskin, horseskin, crocodile skin) and artificial leather.


Disadvantages of dermis: easy to deform when wet, shrink and harden when dry, easy to mold and dark spots, need maintenance, easy to scratch, etc.
Disadvantages of artificial leather: poor breathability and moisture absorption, etc.

Matters needing attention: Avoid washing, do not expose to the sun, hang to dry.
Disadvantages of down: mixed feathers, feather stalks, dry cleaning will further degrease and reduce thermal performance, wear for a long time and heavy dirt, washed down jackets are prone to water stains.

Precautions are: low temperature washing, dry cleaning is not recommended, do not wring to squeeze out the water, do not spin dry with a washing machine, and do not expose to the sun.

Chemical Fiber

02.Chemical Fiber

Chemical fibers are divided into two categories: man-made fibers, synthetic fibers.

Man-made fibers include viscose fibers, acetate fibers, and cupro fibers.

Disadvantages of viscose fiber: low strength, easy to deform and shrink, and poor elasticity.
Matters needing attention are: do not soak for a long time, do not expose to the sun, do not hang,

Disadvantages of acetate fibers: low elongation, etc.
Matters needing attention are: dry cleaning, low temperature cleaning, cleaning with neutral detergent, gentle rubbing when washing, do not use washing machine to dry after washing.

Disadvantages of cupro fibers: poor stability and easy deformation, poor resistance to chlorine bleach and hydrogen peroxide, poor resistance to acids and alkalis
Matters needing attention: use neutral detergent, do not twist forcefully, and do not expose to the sun.

Synthetic fibers include polyester, nylon, acrylic, and spandex.

The disadvantages of polyester are poor ventilation, poor moisture absorption, and poor thermal fusion. Easy to generate static electricity.

Matters needing attention are: wash with softener, dry in a cool and ventilated place, do not expose to the sun, do not dry.

The disadvantages of nylon are poor hygroscopicity, poor ventilation, easy to generate static electricity, and poor thermal fusion.

Matters needing attention are: low temperature washing, do not expose to the sun, not acid, not dry cleaning.

The disadvantage of acrylic fiber is that it is easy to pilling.
Matters needing attention: avoid scratching and rubbing hard, lay flat to dry, and wash and scald at low temperature.

The disadvantages of spandex are low strength, poor moisture absorption and low abrasion resistance.

Matters needing attention are: avoid exposure to the sun and rubbing hard, lay flat to dry, and wash and scald at low temperature.

Well, the shortcomings and maintenance methods of fabrics in this issue are introduced here. I hope this knowledge can help you.
