While purchasing sheets or other clothes, like shirts or t-shirts we see the labels on them and we see the word "blend". The thing that comes into our mind is “why blending”? And we use cotton more comparing to other fabrics so I thought to tell you about cotton blend although “what is a cotton blend?” is a question among its end users. People are keen to know about the cotton blend. We must know about its advantages or disadvantages.
Blending is a crucial skill in making the desired fabric. The cotton blend is a fabric that is made with cotton and also contains other fibers in it in a small amount. The cotton blend contains a high amount of cotton fibers and a small number of other fibers such as rayon, polyester, linen, or others. For Example, a bed sheet of 80% cotton and 20% polyester. It is to increase or add some special qualities in fabric and to reduce the cost of the final fabric.
Making cotton blends are now a trend that is to give some extra qualities to the fabric sometimes it is to provide extra shrinkage and starch feature to the fabric and sometimes to make it crisper. Blending is done before spinning to get the desired cloth. There is always a ratio in blending like 80:20, 60:40, or anything, that depends on the final qualities we want in a fabric. If you don’t have a good cotton blend, pure 100% cotton sheets and clothes will be better for you. People like to choose microfiber instead of cotton because microfiber is cheaper compared to cotton but if you see cotton vs microfiber, cotton wins the race.
