How To Distinguish Cotton Linen Fabric

- Oct 30, 2019-

The easiest way to identify fabric composition is combustion, and cotton linen fabric is no exception. The method is to take a strand of cloth containing warp and weft at the seam edge of the fabric, ignite it with fire, observe the state of the burning flame, smell the smell of the yarn after burning, see the residue after burning, so as to judge whether it is consistent with the fabric composition marked on the durability label of the clothing, so as to identify the authenticity of the fabric composition. Because cotton and hemp are blended, they also have the characteristics of cotton and linen

Cotton fiber and hemp fiber are just close to the flame, and burn quickly, the flame is yellow, blue smoke, generally there is no caking phenomenon, and finally it will become powder. (cotton and hemp are natural ingredients. In general, the natural ingredients will become powder after combustion.) After burning, the fabrics with other chemical components will agglomerate or form particles.

Generally, cotton linen fabric is mainly cotton warp and hemp weft interweaved fabric, so its texture will be relatively firm, with a better sense of draping, and its hand feel will be softer than that of pure hemp fabric, which will feel relatively smooth, and the delicate cotton linen fabric will feel cooler, and the linen fabric with more hemp components will feel a little rough. However, most of them are light and thin, which is suitable for summer and autumn clothing as a whole. Its appearance maintains the unique rough and straight style of hemp fabric, and has the soft characteristics of cotton fabric, which is fine, clean and not easy to fluff.
