Knowledge You Must Know about of Bedding Fabrics
Bedding refers to covers, pillows, bedding, kits, etc., which are an important part of home textiles. The quality of bedding directly affects people's sleep quality and physical health. In addition to the internal quality requirements, the fabric must have a good appearance. The tear strength, abrasion resistance, moisture absorption, and hand feel of the face cloth should be good, the shrinkage rate should be controlled within 1%, and the color fastness All fabrics that meet national standards can be used. What fabric is good for the bedding? The custom bedding set Fabric manufacturer shares this article with you.
The suitable fabrics for bedding are polyester-cotton, pure cotton, polyester, acrylic, real silk, linen and some blended fabrics, among which polyester-cotton and pure cotton fabrics are the most commonly used.
1. Polyester cotton
Polyester-cotton bedding fabric products generally use 65% polyester and 35% cotton polyester-cotton fabric. Polyester-cotton is divided into two types: plain weave and twill weave. The plain-weave polyester-cotton fabric has a thin surface, good strength and abrasion resistance, and minimal shrinkage. The appearance of the finished product is not easy to lose shape. It is affordable and durable, but it is not as comfortable and fit as pure cotton. In addition, because polyester is not easy to dye, polyester-cotton fabrics are mostly light and light-toned, which is more suitable for spring and summer.
2. Twill polyester cotton
Twill weave polyester-cotton bedding fabrics are usually denser than plain weave, so they look dense and thick, and their surface gloss and feel are better than plain weave. Twill fabrics are also very popular in recent years.
3. Pure cotton
100% cotton pocketing fabric, it feels good, comfortable to use, easy to dye, rich in pattern variety, soft and warm, strong moisture absorption, washable, and has less static electricity. It is widely used in bedding fabrics The disadvantage is that it is easy to wrinkle, easy to shrink, poor elasticity, acid and alkali resistance, and it is not suitable to be processed for a long time at a high temperature above 100 degrees Celsius. Therefore, it is best to spray wet when ironing cotton products and easy to iron. If possible, use a steam iron to iron the product after each use, the effect will be better.
4. Jacquard cotton
The high-count and high-density jacquard cotton bedding fabric has a particularly large warp and weft density and rich weave changes, so the fabric feels thick, has good durability, and has a high surface finish. Most of the light-colored backgrounds have natural flowers, which are particularly chic and elegant. It is pure cotton One of the more advanced fabrics.
5. Yarn-dyed cotton
Yarn-dyed pure cotton is a kind of pure cotton bedding fabric, which is woven with warp and weft yarns of different colors. Because dyeing first and weaving later, the dye permeability is strong, the color fastness is good, and the different-color yarn fabric has a strong three-dimensional effect and a unique style. The bedding is mostly expressed in striped patterns. It has the characteristics of pure cotton fabric, but usually shrinks more.
Also known as polyester fiber and chemical fiber, collectively referred to as chemical synthetic fiber, it has been abandoned by most people due to the shortcomings of static electricity, poor air permeability, and poor water absorption.
Acrylic fabric refers to a synthetic fiber made of polyacrylonitrile or acrylonitrile copolymer with an acrylonitrile content of more than 85% (mass percentage). High strength, light weight, easy to wash and quick-drying, good elasticity, not afraid of mold and moths, low comfort, high irritation to the skin, not a good choice for bed sheets.
Silk bedding fabrics look gorgeous, rich and luxurious, have natural soft light and sparkle effects, feel comfortable, have high strength, have better elasticity and moisture absorption than cotton, but are easy to get dirty, and have worse heat resistance to strong sunlight than cotton. The cross-section of the fiber is a unique triangle, and the reflection of light changes after partial moisture absorption, which is easy to form water stains and is difficult to eliminate. Therefore, the silk fabric should be covered with white cloth when ironing.
Flax is also called corn and flax. It is used for fiber separation, oil and fiber oil. They are both annual herbs. Due to its good moisture absorption, fast moisture conduction, relatively small diameter, coarse and cool fabric, it is one of the main fiber raw materials for spring and summer products.
10. Cotton and linen blended
Cotton and linen cloth has good air permeability and perspiration. Cotton and linen cloth can absorb sweat and micro-sweat on human skin, so that body temperature can quickly return to normal, and it can really achieve breathability and sweat absorption. It is warm in winter and cool in summer. It is suitable for personal use. The cotton and linen fabric is antistatic, does not frustrate, and does not curl. The cotton and linen fabric is sewn with pure cotton without free charge, and the cotton fiber is not easy to deform and does not ball. Cotton and linen fabrics are comfortable, anti-itching, friendly to the skin, PH value is acidic, non-irritating to the skin, and meets environmental protection and human health requirements.
