In the stereotyped impression, we always acquiesce that natural fabrics are better than man-made non-natural fabrics. The truth is otherwise. At present, most brands on the market are made of non-natural fabrics. Many first-line brands use artificial high-tech fabrics, and very few use pure natural fabrics, which shows that non-natural fabrics have their own characteristics. Advantage.
Non-natural fabrics can be mainly divided into two categories:
Chemical fiber is what we often call chemical fiber, which refers to fiber textiles made of polymer compounds. It is generally divided into the following three types: and regenerated fibers, such as: viscose, tencel, modal, bamboo fiber and other synthetic fibers, such as: Nylon, polyester, acrylic, spandex, Lycra and other inorganic fibers, such as: glass fiber, metal fiber, etc.
Advantages: In general, these synthetic fabrics are brightly colored, soft in texture, drape stiff, smooth and comfortable. They can be used to make almost any clothing item.
Disadvantages: But why is it cheap? Because the base wear resistance, heat resistance, hygroscopicity, and air permeability are relatively poor, and the mesh is volatile and prone to static electricity. Therefore, the overall grade of the finished clothing is not high, and it is not durable. Let's put it this way, chemical fibers are destined to be used for casual wear.
Take modal fabric as an example, it belongs to a kind of man-made regenerated fiber. It has the softness of cotton, the luster of silk, the smoothness of hemp, easy to color and full color, which is very magical. But it can't avoid the defects of easy wrinkle and pilling. In summer, modal T-shirts are generally deformed from pilling after wearing a few times.
Also as non-natural fabrics, blends and chemical fibers have completely different values. Looking at the major brand items, basically all of them are made of blended fabrics.
Advantages of blending: It is a fabric made by blending natural fabrics and chemical fibers in a certain proportion. It concentrates the advantages of cotton, hemp, silk, wool and chemical fibers, maximizes them, and avoids their respective Defects.
There are many types of blended fabrics, and their prices vary greatly depending on the composition of the fabric. Take silk chiffon and polyester chiffon for example, both are very drapey blended fabrics, but the particles of silk fabrics are more delicate and soft, and they have a more natural texture than polyester fabrics, and the upper body will be more The temperament and breathability are also better, and the price is naturally higher.
