For the first, LOOK would doubtless highlight their use of a silicone-coated Hipora fabric as a membrane. Elsewhere, they’ve deployed Thinsulate fabric, which we’re hoping will serve us well in the weeks and months ahead.
The word "taffeta" is derived from tafta, which means "twisted woven" in Persian. While it's true that taffeta fabric is made by twisting yarn as it is woven, many other fabrics are also made with this method, which means that the starched and shape-retaining qualities of taffeta are more representative of its unique attributes than its name.
Traditionally, taffeta was made from silk, but with the advent of synthetic fibers in the 20th century, textile manufacturers started making this fabric from materials like rayon and polyester. While it's still possible to find silk taffeta fabric, it's much more common to find versions of this fabric that are made from po
It is common to associate stretch fabric with spandex, however the story of what makes fabric stretchy is a bit more complex. In this article, I hope to touch on some aspects of why and how fabrics can be stretchy for anyone interested in considering fabric and fibers more closely.
I work with fabric everyday at Refiber Designs. From my experience, I want to share some of my understanding of stretch fabric and to explain everything as plainly as possible to make it accessible to any curious mind with or without a sewing background. I hope this article provides you with some new insights about stretch fabric.
Properties of Stretch
In order to understand how fabric extends in length we will need to look closer at its structure. For now, let's ignore any innate stretch in the yarns within the fabric; it would only enhance the effects that we explore in this section. Without the stretch within the yarn, we are left with the mechanical stretch due to the way that the yarn is arranged within the constructed fabric.
Taslon is a fabric made of polyamide filament or polyester filament and polyamide (polyester) air textured silk.
The warp is made of 70D nylon filament, and the weft has 160D, 250D, 320D air deformation yarn of nylon, as well as single latitude, double latitude (250D×2) and three latitude (160D×3).
The weave has plain and variational weave (small jacquard), 2/2 twill.Taslon can also be divided into nylon Taslon and polyester Taslon,
Warp and weft have one direction of the raw material is the air variable filament (nylon air variable filament or polyester air variable filament).
Mainly divided into two categories: nylon Taslon and polyester Taslon series.
