What Is Satin Fabric

- Jun 20, 2019-

The warp and weft yarns are interlaced at least once. The fabric has the highest density and the thickest, and the fabric is smoother and more lustrous, but the product cost is higher, so the price is relatively expensive.


The satin weaving process is more complicated, and only one of the warp and weft yarns is covered in a floating form. The satin is covered with a surface covered by a floating length; Longer float lines give the fabric a better gloss and reflect light. Therefore, if you look carefully at the cotton satin fabric, you will feel a faint lustre.


If a long-gloss filament yarn is used as the float line, the gloss of the fabric and the reflectivity to the light will be more prominent. For example, the silky jacquard fabric has a silky bright effect.


The long lines in the satin fabric are prone to wear, fuzzing or fiber smearing. Therefore, such fabrics have lower strength than plain weaves and twill weaves. Fabric satin of the same yarn count is denser and thicker, and the cost is higher. Plain weave, twill weave, satin is the most basic three kinds of latitude and longitude interlacing, there is no specific good or bad, but from the technical point of view, the satin is definitely a fine product in pure cotton fabric, and the twill is accepted by most families.
