Fabric property

  • Breathability: The ability of a fabric to allow air to circulate. Natural fiber fabrics are usually more breathable.
  • Hygroscopic and wicking: The ability of fabrics to absorb and release moisture. Cotton, hemp and other natural fiber and man-made fiber fabrics have better moisture absorption.
  • Warmth: The degree to which the fabric resists heat loss. Wool and other animal fiber fabrics have better thermal properties.
  • Waterproof: The ability of fabric to resist moisture penetration. Synthetic fabrics and specially treated fabrics are waterproof.
  • Wrinkle resistance: The ability of fabrics to resist wrinkles during use and cleaning. Synthetic fabrics usually have good wrinkle resistance.
  • Elasticity: The ability of a fabric to return to its original state. Elastic fibers such as spandex and spandex blends have good elasticity.
  • Color fastness: The ability of a fabric to retain color during use and washing. The color fastness of different fabrics varies depending on the dye and treatment process.
  • Antibacterial: The ability of fabrics to resist the growth of bacteria. Some fabrics will be treated with antibacterial treatment, such as silver ion treatment, to give them antibacterial properties.
