The Best Cotton Blend CombinationsWritten by d'Italia
As we discussed in one of our posts, cotton is one of the most common fabric components of garments of nearly any kind. We also came to a conclusion about the 100% vs, blend debate, and for those looking more into cotton blends and what they can offer clothing, have a look at these common blend combinations that bring their own great, specific benefits.
Polyester This fabric is more a product of industrious humans than it is nature, though it comprises natural components such as coal, water and petroleum. Polyester has become a common cotton blend choice because on its own it’s well known for its resiliency and versatility. cotton blended with this fabric gains increased protection from wrinkles, as well as more consistent fits over time. LinenA popular blend in warmer climates or for summer fashions, linen is a great cotton addition for improving breathability and overall coolness. NylonAnother popular choice for warmer weather cotton blends is nylon. Nylon is lightweight and fast drying, and is an exceptionally comfortable fabric to the touch. RayonSimilar to polyester, rayon blends are more resistant to wrinkles and add both durability and softness to cotton garments when blended together.
