How about pure cotton fabric? Will pure cotton shrink?
What are the advantages of pure cotton fabrics?
1. Sweat-absorbent and breathable, soft to the touch, comfortable to wear; 2. Resistant to bleach, easy to wash; 3. Good dyeing performance, soft gloss; 4. Durable, economical, and alkali-resistant.
What are the disadvantages of pure cotton fabrics?
1. Insufficient elasticity, it is difficult to return to its original shape after deformation, and it is easy to wrinkle; 2. It will shrink, and light-colored clothes cannot be washed with dark-colored clothes.
The reason why pure cotton fabric shrinks:
There is a cavity in the middle of the cotton fiber. Because cotton fiber has strong water absorption, the fiber loses its elasticity after absorbing water, and the cavity of the fiber is greatly reduced, so the volume of the entire cotton fiber is reduced. Therefore, cotton clothes will shrink after washing. It is not caused by stretching during production. If you put a piece of cotton in water, the size of the cotton will also be greatly reduced. This is the reason.
Some pure cotton clothes do not shrink. Some poorly made pure cotton clothes use machines to straighten the cotton fibers. In the process, the structure of the pure cotton material is destroyed, so it will shrink; while chemical fiber clothes will shrink. Because of the material of the clothes, the chemical fiber material was not destroyed during the stretching process, so the question was proved.
The cotton tissue is not fine enough.
General pure cotton products will shrink to varying degrees without special treatment.
Cotton is stretched so tightly when it is spun and stretched so tightly when weaved that it loses its shape. It returns to its original shape after passing through water. Therefore it shrinks. Nowadays, some craftsmanship shrinks in advance. If you wash it after buying it, it will not shrink.
It’s definitely not 100% cotton clothes that suffer from shrinkage. Real cotton clothes just become a little wrinkled after being washed and dried. Pure cotton, no matter how thick it is, is soft, strong, slightly stretchy, and has a very true color.
Nowadays, it is a high-tech process, and it is difficult to buy traditional pure cotton fabrics in the market. Cotton is stretched so tightly when it is spun and stretched so tightly when weaved that it loses its shape. It returns to its original shape after passing through water. Therefore it shrinks. Nowadays, some craftsmanship shrinks in advance. If you wash it after buying it, it will not shrink.
