Fabric: Cotton 棉花面料

Characteristics:

  • Cool, soft and comfortable.
  • Absorbs and releases perspiration quickly, thus allowing the fabric to breathe. This makes cotton cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Durable.
  • Can wrinkle easily.
  • There are many varieties of cotton. Each has a distinct structure in how the cotton is woven which gives the fabric unique qualities. 

Care Instructions:

  • Machine washable.
  • Chlorine bleach can be used to restore white garments to a clear white but bleach may yellow chemically finished cottons or remove color in dyed cottons.
  • Cotton can be ironed at relatively high temperatures. 

 

 

 

棉花具有很強的親水性,因此吸濕本領大。在溫度20攝氏度和相對濕度65%,吸濕率可達7%。人們穿純棉的服裝,如夏天的T恤衫,它可以吸汗來調節皮膚的溫濕度,使人感到舒適。

 

棉花在水中能膨化,膨化後比原來大50%左右,長度也伸長1%~2%,這樣的變化十分重要。第一是染色時有利於染料向纖維運動而著色第二是有助於洗衣服時,汙物從衣服上脫離。但是有利必有弊,這種變化也造成純棉衣服洗後易起皺變形,有時還能產生令人頭痛的縮水。棉花的耐磨性較差,它與滌綸混紡雖然可以提高強度,但實際上這種強度只是暫時性的,穿著後棉纖維就慢慢受損脫落。

 

通過對各種纖維的比較,棉纖維對人體健康的安全係數最大,這對保護我們的健康十分重要。
