Usually, with respect to fabrics, many outsiders, including newcomers, may not be very clear about where the expensive fabrics are sold. Today, Xiaobian said that the fabric sold expensive, is where you.
First of all, we need to understand a few professional vocabulary, fabric count, density, and yarn thickness of the impact on the fabric.
01 What's the advantage of having more?
Count is taller, yarn is finer, wool simple sense is more silky, relative price is higher also, but fabric count and fabric quality do not have necessary concern. Fabrics larger than 100 pieces can be called "super". The count concept is more applicable to worsted fabrics than to woolen fabrics, such as Harris tweed, which have very low counts.
02 The greater the count, the finer the yarn
Count is the most important index to measure the quality of fabrics. It is also easy to understand, in fact, it is to describe the thickness of the yarn, the larger the number of yarn, the finer the yarn, 250 wool diameter has reached 11 microns. The finer the yarn, the more delicate the fabric style.
03 The higher the density, the better the water resistance
Because the density is very high, so the fabric of high count can also be waterproof, like red wine, tea, juice and other liquids spill on the clothes, do not worry, the liquid will only roll on the fabric and will not penetrate, this functional fabric made of clothes is less careful more very free and easy.
04 The pursuit of ultra-fine yarn is not necessarily a good thing
But too fine yarn, production is extremely difficult, it is easy to break, for example, a Chinese group has produced 300 pieces of fabric, but because the performance is too poor, can only be put on the fabric exhibition, no practical value. Therefore, in the pursuit of microfiber, we must first ensure that the raw materials have superior performance.
Fabric with more than 100 pieces and less than 300 pieces is a relatively popular high-end fabric in the market at present. We can look forward to whether fabrics with more than 300 pieces and very good wearing performance can appear in the future. Maybe there will be such ultra-high count fabrics in the future.
To put it simply, the quality of the fabric has no direct connection with the count of the fabric, but the larger the yarn count, the more delicate and softer the fabric will be. The higher the density of the fabric, the better the water resistance of the fabric, so if there is a requirement for the waterproof function of the fabric, find the fabric can be judged according to the density of the fabric.
