A type of fabric that is produced from untreated cotton plant fibers and spinner-dyed yarns, which have been carded, spun into a single thread and twisted into a continuous strand. Cotton breathes and can dry quickly. It is also absorbent, so this type of fabric is perfect if you want to stay cool during warm summer days. Cotton is a versatile material, so it feels great against your skin, but it’s also easy to clean and can be worn in many ways. Finally, this type of fabric has a subtle soft touch that feels great against your skin.
This material is made out of the fibres of the flax plant and has a linen texture. Linen fabric tends to wrinkle easily due to its fine threading and lightweight nature, allowing air to pass through easily. It is also absorbent and breathable. This fabric is light and comfortable against the skin, has a natural stretch to it, and feels great against your skin. Finally, linen is perfect for women’s casual clothing because it breaths well and dries quickly.
Rayon fabric comes from de-seeded and bleached chemical-free fibres of wood pulp. Rayon fibre is produced through a technique called viscose rayon which involves the milling of wood pulp fibers into very fine threads before those threads are spun into very thin yarns to create rayon thread. This kind of fabric is light and soft, has a matte texture to it, and has an extremely smooth feel to it.
Knit fabrics are made in the same way as woven fabrics, in that interweaving threads make them in a grid-like structure to create the fabric. However, the main difference between knit and woven fabrics is that knit fabrics are created by laying yarn or thread flat before weaving them together. In contrast, threads are woven together when creating woven fabric. As a result, knits tend to be very soft against your skin.
Polyester is a man-made fibre produced from petroleum-based plastic produced through hydrolysis of polyacetylene. It is light, cool, very absorbent and quick-drying. Polyester is also good for everyday wear because it’s easy to care for, easy to wash, and worn in many ways.
- Cotton Blend:
A cotton blend has a percentage of cotton in it. This cotton is usually blended with another fibre that adds extra softness to the finished product. These kinds of fabrics are very soft against your skin so are great for everyday wear.
