The formation principle and variety classification of artificial fur
Artificial fur is a plush fabric similar in appearance to animal fur. It is a structure in which fiber bundles and ground yarn are fed into knitting needles and woven into loops, so that the fibers are attached to the surface of the fabric in a fluffy shape, and a fluffy appearance is formed on the reverse side of the fabric. Compared with animal fur, it has the advantages of high warmth retention, high degree of simulation, low price, and easy processing. Not only can imitate fur materials to show the noble and luxurious style, but also show the advantages of leisure, fashion and personality.
Artificial fur is often used as coats, clothing linings, hats, collars, toys, cushions, interior decorations and carpets. Manufacturing methods include knitting (weft knitting, warp knitting and stitch knitting) and weaving. The knitting weft knitting method has the fastest development and is the most widely used.
In the late 1950s, with the recovery of the European economy, people began to pursue a luxurious life. The specific manifestation was the increasing demand for fur, which led to the extinction of some animals and the increasingly scarce animal fur resources. Under this background, Bauerger invented artificial fur for the first time. Although the development process is short, the development speed is rapid, and China's fur processing and consumer market occupy an important share.
The emergence of artificial fur can fundamentally solve the problem of killing animals and protecting the environment. Moreover, compared with natural fur, artificial fur is softer in texture, lighter in weight, more fashionable in style, and has good warmth retention and breathability. It makes up for the shortcomings of natural fur that is difficult to take care of.
