2. Wash and dry. Separate dark and light colors

3. Pay attention to ventilation and avoid dampness to avoid mildew

4. Underwear can not be soaked in hot water so as not to appear yellow sweat spots

Ironing points:

1. Iron at low or medium temperature;

2. Cover with a dry cloth when ironing at medium temperature to avoid aurora‍

2. Linen fabric

Sackcloth is generally used to make casual wear, work wear, and now also to make ordinary summer clothes.

Advantages: hygroscopic sweating, high strength, crisp(strong three-dimensional sense), soft luster, moth resistance, acid resistance.

Disadvantages: poor elasticity, slightly rough(rough style); Poor holding force; Easy to mold, easy to wrinkle, easy to shrink.

The standard clothing fabric is generally cotton and linen blended cloth; hemp and cotton blended material typically uses 55%hemp and 45% cotton or hemp and cotton, each 50%proportion for blending. The appearance maintains the unique rough and crisp style of hemp fabric. It has the soft characteristics of cotton fabric, improving the shortcomings of hemp fabric that needs to be cleaner and easier to fuze. Cotton and linen interwoven fabric is mainly cotton warp and linen weft. Its texture is firm and smooth and feels softer than pure linen. Ramie cotton blended interwoven fabric is primarily light and thin, suitable for summer clothing.printed fabrics -DADITEXTILE

6. Copper ammonia fiber

Cotton staple fiber is spun by Cu(OH)2 or essential copper salt.

The hygroscopic property of cupramine fiber is close to that of viscose fiber, and the moisture recovery rate can reach 12%-13% under general atmospheric conditions. Under the same dyeing conditions, the dyeing affinity of cupramine thread is more significant than viscose fiber's, and the coloring is darker.

Copper ammonia fiber's dry strength is close to viscose fiber's. Still, the wet power is higher than that of viscose fiber, and the wear resistance is better than that of viscose fiber. Because of the soft yarn, luster is suitable and commonly used for high-grade silk or knitted fabrics. Its wear performance is better, with good moisture absorption, and very drape; wear performance is similar to silk, in line with the trend of environmental protection clothing.

Advantages: Soft feel, luster, silk feeling, deep color, good fastness, high wet strength, delicate and soft fibers.

Disadvantages: not crisp, easy to wrinkle, easy to shrink.

Washing and maintenance:

Alkaline resistance is poor, suitable for neutral or acidic detergent

Applicable product: T-shirts, mainly‍

7. Acetate fiber

Chemical products are known as acetate fiber, acetate fiber, or acetate cellulose fiber.

A type of artificial fiber. It is a chemical fiber made from cellulose as raw material and converted into cellulose acetate ester by a chemical process. Acetate fiber has good light resistance but poor dyeing performance. Generally made of short fiber, it can be used as artificial wool. It can also be made into solid ethyl fiber.

Advantages: Smooth surface, glossy, good elasticity.Good draping, durable pressing finishing function, often used as coat lining.

Disadvantages: moisture absorption slightly poor air, Easy to wrinkle, slightly poor strength.

Washing and maintenance:

1. Poor color fastness; wash dark and light colors separately

2. Do not wash; suitable for dry cleaning


It is a high wet modulus regenerated fiber cable fiber developed by the Austrian Lanzing Company. The raw material is European beech, which belongs to wood pulp fiber. It is 1%natural fiber, harmless to the human body, and can decompose naturally. Modal yarn is the first choice for high-grade knitting, woven fabric yarn, with prices between tencel and ordinary viscose.

Modal fiber fabric feels soft, has good drape, and wears comfortably.

Modal fiber fabric has better hygroscopic and breathable properties than cotton fabric. It is an ideal close-fitting fabric and health clothing product, which is conducive to human physiological circulation and health.

Modal fiber fabric colors gorgeous, light amount, and is a natural mercerized fabric.

Advantages: Soft, smooth, silky feeling.Silky gloss, gorgeous color, soft touch, good drape.Durable, green, and environmentally friendly fiber. Excellent moisture absorption, bright color, does not produce fibril.

Cons: Not sharp

Washing and maintenance: hand washing, machine washing, and dry cleaning are available; soft will not change,

9. Tencel is also called LYOCELL fiber

Environmental fiber is known as the"21st century"green fiber. Woven with cotton blend fabric, which also increases its soft comfort and breathable calm.

Advantages: High wet strength, good dimensional stability, and moisture absorption. The fabric color bright feels soft and smooth, waxy, with natural fiber comfort.

Disadvantages: moisture absorption could be better, wrinkled quickly, and has poor strength.

Washing and maintenance:

1. Hand washing, machine washing, and dry cleaning can be soft and will not change

2. But do not use bleach; suitable for drying, do not wring

10. Polyester is mainly made of staple fiber

Features: Good wrinkle resistance, good retention, good wear resistance, not easy to deform, good elasticity. Therefore, polyester fabric is stiff, easy to wash and dry, free from iron, has poor moisture absorption and air permeability, easy to pill, has a smooth surface, and easy to generate static electricity between fibers friction. The fabric is easy to stick gray stains.

13. Spandex

It is short for polyurethane fiber and is a kind of elastic fiber.

The main features of spandex fabric are:

(1)The elasticity of spandex is very high; available products do not use 100%polyurethane, primarily mixed in the fabric with 5~30%proportion; all kinds of spandex fabrics have 15%~45%comfortable elasticity.

(2)Spandex fabric is often made of composite yarn, that is, with spandex as the core and other fibers(such as nylon, polyester,etc.)as the cortex to make core-spun yarn elastic fabric, which has good adaptability to the body and is suitable for making tights without pressure.

(3)The appearance style and wear performance of spandex elastic fabric are close to similar products covered by the outer fiber fabric.
