Introduction to cloth] Plain cloth: first weaved and then dyed, it is called plain cloth. Generally, it has a single color. Yarn-dyed fabric: Dyeing first and then weaving is called yarn-dyed fabric. Fine straight strips and plaid patterns can be obtained. Because the yarn is dyed first, the color fastness is high. Printed fabric: Common printing is to use water-soluble reactive dye paste to make transfer printing paper. By applying a certain amount of pressure, the dye is transferred to the fabric. It has strong color fastness and excellent texture. Jacquard fabric: refers to the pattern formed by changes in the warp and weft structure during fabric weaving. There are single color printing and yarn-dyed printing. Jacquard fabric has a soft texture, drape, good gloss, and is not easy to fade. It is divided into large jacquard and small jacquard. The patterns of large jacquard are generally flowers and various patterned graphics, while small jacquard is limited to weaving geometric patterns such as strips and plaids.

【Fiber fineness】Fiber fineness is used to indicate the thickness of fiber. Fiber fineness and its degree of dispersion are related to fiber strength, elongation, rigidity, elasticity and uniformity of deformation, and also affect the feel and style of fabrics and the processing of yarns and fabrics. The fineness of yarn and textile fibers is expressed in tex, that is, the number of grams of a 1000 meter (m) long yarn weighs, that is, the number of tex. The fiber fineness of chemical fiber filament and silk is generally expressed by D, that is, how many grams of 9000 meters (m) long yarn weighs, that is, how many denier (den) it is. The lower the "D" number, the better the fiber length and fineness, the better warmth retention, fluffiness, and thickness. Filling cotton below 7D is the best. Wool type chemical fiber: The length and fineness of the fiber are equivalent to those of wool fiber, the length is 76-102mm, and the fineness is 0.33-0.55 special. Cotton type chemical fiber: The length and fineness of the fiber are equivalent to those of cotton fiber, with a length of 33-38mm and a fineness of 0.132-0.165 special. Medium-length chemical fiber: The length and fineness of the fiber are between wool type and cotton type, with a length of 51-76mm and a fineness of 0.22-0.33 special.

Filling material - polyester short fiber

1. Cotton

In addition to paying attention to the fabric of bedding, the most important thing is the product filling material-cotton. Even if good fabrics are used, if the filling material is not good, the entire product will still be imperfect and low-grade. General consumers are very particular about it. Fiber fineness is an indicator of the thickness of cotton fiber, expressed in decitex (dtex). The general specifications of conventional bedding fillers are 6D, 7D, 8D, 15D, etc. The length is usually 64mm, and 1000 meters of cotton fiber weighs just a few grams. It is called a few specials. The larger the special, the thicker the cotton fiber. The cotton filling for high-end bedding generally does not exceed 8D.

1. Polyester cotton: Generally solid, with poor elasticity and warmth retention, and heavy texture, it can be used as filler for low-end bedding.

2. Hollow cotton: This type of cotton generally has one hole or multiple holes, has good elasticity and good warmth retention, and is suitable for use as filling material for mid- to high-end bedding. (1) Single-hole cotton: The fiber has a hole in the hollow. It has better elasticity and warmth retention than polyester solid cotton. It is cheaper and is generally used as a filling material for ordinary bedding. (2) Porous cotton: This type of fiber has seven holes or four holes, and the specifications are 6D and 8D. They are all made of three-dimensional curled cotton, which has excellent elasticity, warmth retention and breathability. It is light in weight and feels comfortable on the human body. Because the fiber pores can maintain moisture and oxygen in the air, they provide for human skin metabolism and are beneficial to health. Therefore, it is generally used as a filler for mid- to high-end bedding, but the cost is relatively high.

3. Slippery cotton: This type of cotton has a hole and feels particularly comfortable and smooth after finishing. Good warmth retention and elasticity. If coupled with American LOFT's special anti-mildew, anti-bacteria, and anti-static fibers, it will be more healthy and comfortable, in line with the needs of modern people, and at the same time, it can avoid down allergy, cotton quilts that easily breed bacteria, and produce odors. This cotton is often used as filling material for waterfowl quilts and slippery quilts.

4. Soft cotton, loose cotton: Hollow cotton or three-dimensional curled single-hole cotton is made through carding, paving, glue spraying, finishing and other processes. Usually finer fibers are used. The spray-on soft glue has been treated with high temperature resistance and sterilization. It has a soft feel and is light in weight. It is often used as multi-purpose quilt core cotton. According to its thickness, it can be divided into 800#, 1000#, 1200# and 2400# cotton. Often used as high-end bedding and quilt core cotton.

2. Tencel, Lyocell, Modal

Modal: soft to the touch, smooth, bright color, good color fastness, the fabric feels particularly smooth, the cloth surface is bright, the drape is better than the existing cotton, polyester, and viscose fiber, and it has the strength and toughness of synthetic fibers. It has a silk-like luster and feel, and its fabric is wrinkle-resistant and non-ironing, and has good water absorption and breathability.

Lyocell: It has many excellent properties of natural fibers and synthetic fibers. It has natural luster, smooth feel, high strength, basically does not shrink, and has good moisture and air permeability. It is soft, comfortable, smooth and cool, has good drape, and is durable. durable.
