Know Your Fabrics

Buying fabrics is easy. Sometimes we may fall in love with the design (well, love is always at first sight, huh?), and sometimes we may tend to choose fabrics because of the feel when we touch it. Or maybe, we buy them because our friends or mom (always !) recommended them.

Still, those are 3 basic but strong reasons we have to consider. But don't forget to consider this factor too - cheap ! Hehehe...In Pelangi Shoppe, our price do the talking. The design, the quality is our guarantee. 

So, let's know the fabrics better.

We start with COTTON.

Cotton is soft and comfortable. It's best property is its ability to 'breathe' by absorbing and releasing its perspiration quickly. it's a high quality fabric, can withstand high heat and last for years.

Unfortunately cotton wrinkles, and 100% cotton garments must be ironed regularly to keep their appearance.

Cotton will shrink the first time it's washed although some cotton clothes come pre-shrunk it is important to check this out.

Lower quality cotton are prone to pilling.

How to take care of Cotton?
  • Cotton is relatively low maintenance and can be washed in a washing machine using warm water and soap.
  • Cotton can also be dried in a dryer on a low heat, or hung to dry on a clothesline, but be careful when putting dark-coloured cottons in the dryer as this will cause the colour to fade over time.
  • Iron to remove winkles, but take care not to iron over stains as this will end up ‘setting’ the stains (making them permanent).
How about VISCOSE?
Some said Rayon. Some assume rayon or viscose is the same thing, just different terminology, others say that viscose is a type of rayon. For our purposes, we’ll look at them together. Viscose has a silky appearance and feel, it breathes like cotton and has a good ‘drape.’ It’s relatively light, resulting in lightweight clothing.
Its main drawback is that it wrinkles very easily, which is why I’m always finding my viscose t-shirts crumbled and crinkly.
How to take care of Viscose?
  • Viscose requires delicate hand in cool – luke warm water with washing for proper care, with no wringing or twisting (apparently this can cause the fabric to rip).
  • If its a relatively unimportant item (t-shirts, for example) you may be able to get away with putting it in a wash back for a machine wash on a delicate setting… but tread with caution!
  • Hang wet items and let them dry that way, this will also help to remove any creasing.
  • To remove wrinkles, iron using a medium setting with steam.
Be it Cotton or Viscose, the way you wash it, iron it and take care of it shows how you take care of yourself. Right?

We love u ~
