1. Cotton cloth
It is the general term for all kinds of cotton textiles. Cotton cloth is divided into cotton, rayon and other varieties. It is mostly used to make fashion, casual wear, underwear and shirts. Its advantages are easy to keep warm, soft and close-fitting, moisture absorption, and good air permeability. Its shortcomings are that it is easy to shrink and wrinkle, and the appearance is not very stiff and beautiful, and it must be ironed frequently when wearing it.
2. Linen
It is a fabric made of hemp, flax, ramie, jute, sisal, abaca and other hemp plant fibers. It is generally used to make casual wear and work wear, and it is mostly used to make ordinary summer clothes. Its advantages are extremely high strength, moisture absorption, heat conduction, and good air permeability. Its disadvantage is that it is not very comfortable to wear, and its appearance is rough and stiff.
3. Silk
It is a general term for all kinds of silk fabrics spun from silk as raw material. Like cotton, it has many varieties and different personalities. It can be used to make all kinds of clothes, especially suitable for making ladies' clothes. Its strengths are lightness, fit, softness, smoothness, breathability, brilliant colors, luster, elegance, and comfort. Its shortcomings are that it is prone to wrinkles, easy to suck, not strong enough, and fades faster.
4. Woolen cloth
Also called wool, it is a general term for fabrics woven from various types of wool and cashmere. It is usually used to make formal and high-end clothing such as dresses, suits, and overcoats. Its advantages are anti-wrinkle and abrasion resistance, soft hand feeling, elegant and crisp, full of elasticity, and strong warmth retention. Its main disadvantage is that it is difficult to wash and is not suitable for making summer clothes.
5. Leather
It is a tanned animal fur fabric. It is mostly used to make fashion and winter clothes. It can be divided into two categories: one is leather, that is, leather that has been dehaired. The second is fur, that is, treated leather with belt hair. Its advantages are lightness and warmth, grace and luxury. Its disadvantage is that it is expensive and requires high storage and care, so it is not suitable for popularization.
6. Chemical fiber
It is an abbreviation for chemical fiber. It is a textile made of fibers using polymer compounds as raw materials. Usually it is divided into two categories: artificial fiber and synthetic fiber. Their common advantages are bright colors, soft texture, crisp drape, smoothness and comfort. Their disadvantages are poor wear resistance, heat resistance, moisture absorption, and air permeability. They are easily deformed when exposed to heat and are prone to static electricity. Although it can be used to make all kinds of clothing, but the overall grade is not high, it is difficult to be elegant.
7. Blended
It is a fabric made by mixing natural fiber and chemical fiber according to a certain ratio, which can be used to make all kinds of clothing. Its strength is that it not only absorbs the advantages of cotton, linen, silk, wool and chemical fiber, but also avoids their respective shortcomings as much as possible, and is relatively inexpensive in value, so it is very popular.
8.Modal
Modal is a cellulose regenerated fiber of high wet modulus viscose fiber. The raw material of the fiber is European beech wood, which is first made into wood pulp, and then processed into fibers through a special spinning process. The raw materials of the product are all natural materials, which are harmless to the human body and can be decomposed naturally, which is harmless to the environment. Modal fiber is characterized by the luxurious texture of natural fiber and the practicality of synthetic fiber. It has the softness of cotton, the luster of silk, the smoothness of linen, and its water absorption and air permeability are better than cotton. It has a higher dye uptake, and the fabric color is bright and full. Modal fiber can be blended and interwoven with a variety of fibers, such as cotton, linen, silk, etc., to improve the quality of these fabrics, so that the fabric can remain soft and smooth, and give play to the characteristics of each fiber to achieve better results.
9. Artificial fur
Artificial fur refers to a plush fabric that looks similar to animal fur. The fluff is divided into two layers: the outer layer is 17-34dtex and has bright, thick and straight bristles. The fineness of the inner short pile fiber is 1.7 to 5.6 dtex.
Manufacturing methods include knitting, weaving, and tufted fur. Artificial fur is often used to make coats, clothing linings and decorations. Although artificial fur is not as warm as real fur, it is soft and beautiful. It can be made into beautiful patterns like animal hair, and it can be dry-cleaned and flame-proof.
