As a Polyester Cotton Knit Fabric Wholesale, share with you. Polyester-cotton fabric refers to a polyester-cotton blended fabric, which uses polyester as the main component and is woven with 60%-67% polyester and 33%-40% cotton blended yarn. Polyester-cotton fabric is commonly known as cotton.

Customers who often buy shirts know that the fabric of many shirts is marked with polyester or cotton. "Polyester cotton" and "cotton polyester", the order of the two words is changed into two different fabrics. So, which of the two fabrics, "polyester-cotton" and "cotton-polyester" is better? This depends on the preferences and actual needs of customers. In other words, if you want a shirt with more characteristics of polyester fabric, choose "polyester cotton", and if you want more cotton characteristics, choose "cotton polyester".

Polyester-cotton is a mixture of polyester and cotton, and feels less comfortable than cotton. It is not as good as cotton to absorb sweat. Polyester is the largest variety with the highest output among synthetic fibers. Polyester has many trade names, "polyester" is our country's trade name. The chemical name is polyethylene terephthalate, which is usually formed by the polymerization of chemicals, so the scientific name often carries "poly". Polyester is also called polyester. Structure and performance: The structure shape is determined by the spinneret hole. The cross-section of conventional polyester is round and has no cavity. Changing the cross-sectional shape of the fiber can produce special-shaped fibers. Improve brightness and cohesion. The crystallinity and orientation of fiber macromolecules are high, so the fiber strength is high (20 times that of viscose fiber) and has good abrasion resistance. Good elasticity, not easy to wrinkle, stiff and good shape retention, good light resistance and heat resistance, quick-drying after washing, no ironing, good wash and wear performance.

Polyester is a chemical fiber fabric, which is not easy to wick away sweat. It feels thorny to the touch, it is easy to be static, and it looks bright when tilted.

Polyester-cotton blended fabric is a variety developed in my country in the early 1960s. The fiber has the characteristics of stiff, smooth, fast-drying, and durable, and is deeply loved by consumers. At present, the blended varieties have developed from the original ratio of 65% polyester to 35% cotton to 65:35, 55:45, 50:50, 20:80 and other different ratios of blended fabrics. The purpose is to adapt to different levels. Consumer demand.

Polyester gets a bum rap in the style world and I often end up sticking up for the man made fibre. In 2007, I wrote a post on how polyester has its place and my perspective hasn’t changed since then. 

There’s a lot to like about items made of polyester blended with cotton, rayon, silk, wool and linen. It’s the polyester component that gives the garment drape, stability during the laundry cycle, and a more crease-resistant finish. It also brings down the price of the garment. Natural fibres do not possess these appealing attributes.  

I’ll take my polyester love a step further. I’m so impressed with the woven 100% polyester blouses that I bought at Zara this year. They are inexpensive, machine washable, drape like a dream, look pristine, do not require ironing and their crease resistance makes them perfect for traveling. I was also impressed with the woven 100% polyester blouses that the Loft stocked last year. My clients bought up a storm, and they laundered and lasted really well. Thanks to updated technology, the quality of woven polyester seems to have improved. And the more affordable price, especially when compared to silk, can’t be beat. 

Of course, 100% polyester can look nasty and flammable, especially in jersey knits. The fabrication does not breathe in the same way that natural fibres do despite its appealing attributes. This is what puts most people off polyester clothing to start off with. 

At the end of the day, as much as I love natural fibres, I ALSO bat for Team Polyester, especially when it’s blended with natural fibres. In the right fabric ratios and in the right items, polyester is fabulous. I’m grateful that the fibre exists!

Of course, a big question that I haven’t touched on is the ecological impact of this synthetic fabric. Michelle recently examined cotton’s impact on the environment, and she’s working on polyester for the next article in her series on eco-fashion. I’m looking forward to hearing what she learned.

Over to you. Do you wear 100% polyester clothing? Do you wear polyester blended clothing? Or is polyester a big no-no for your style?
