Why choosing the right fabric is important
The fabric in direct contact with the body (bed linen, summer dress, trousers) is an important factor in health and mood. It is difficult to concentrate on work, a business meeting, or just enjoy communicating with friends if the clothes are not pleasant to the body, rubbing or steaming. Sleeping well is easier on quality bedding. If a person suffers from allergies, poor fabric selection can lead to aggravation.
How to assess the quality of fabric
When choosing clothes that are close to the body or underwear, the following points should be considered.
- The fabric should absorb moisture well and allow the body to breathe. Otherwise, the feeling of freshness will quickly go away
- Painting and drawing. There are many ways to apply a pattern to fabric. It is important for the body that both the paint and the method of its application are of high quality. For example, thermal printing is not suitable for close-to-body clothing or bedding
- The fabric should be pleasant to the touch. No comment
- Consider the frequency and washing cycle. Bed linen, for example, is typically washed at high temperatures. If you only have a few sets, the wash will be frequent. The fabric must be sufficiently durable
Advantages and disadvantages of fabrics on the example of bedding
Linen. The most environmentally friendly, does not cause allergies, absorbs moisture well and allows air to pass through. But not cheap and crumples
Flannel. Very soft and pleasant canvas. But after washing it quickly loses its qualities
Baptiste. Nice and handsome. But it wears out pretty quickly
Satin. Durable, cheap and durable. But it is made with an admixture of synthetics, so it is less hygienic
