Classification and characteristics of wool blended fabrics

Oct 31, 2019

Wool fiber is one of the most used natural textile materials. The wool-containing woven fabric has the unique elasticity of wool and the fullness and warmth. Although wool has many advantages, it also has the disadvantages of easy ball felting and heat resistance, and the price is high, so it has a certain influence on the use rate in the textile industry, but with the improvement of technology, the application of wool blending changes. This dilemma, by blending with other types of fibers,

complements each other's advantages, avoids weaknesses, and greatly reduces raw material costs.


The common wool blend fabrics are mainly the following:

Wool and acrylic blend

Acrylic and wool are complementary in strength to each other. The wool-acrylonitrile blend is easy to obtain a strong hair feel. If wet heat processing is performed, the fiber moisture absorption performance is enhanced, and the ambient temperature is abrupt. The moisture absorption heat released by the fiber will heat up the fiber, and the heat will be transferred to the whole garment. The body's cold and heat acts as cushioning protection.

The dyeing range of wool and acrylic fiber is similar, and it can be dyed in one bath to reduce pollution and improve efficiency. And the acrylic fiber itself has good coloring property, so the wool-nitrile blended fabric is mostly bright in color. And the acrylic fiber can bring a fluffy and soft hand and antibacterial and anti-mite effect to the wool blended fabric.

Wool and nylon blend

Nylon is an important milestone in the synthesis of textile fibers. The addition of nylon will greatly improve the abrasion resistance and resilience of wool blended fabrics. The wool/nylon blended fabric is not only full, beautiful, but also very durable. Hair and brocade dyeing have good homochromatic and bright colors.

And nylon has always been a synthetic fiber that has received much attention. Researchers are tirelessly synthesizing more models, more functional nylon fibers, such as flame retardant, abrasion-resistant, antistatic, etc., and bring these properties into wool-blended fabrics. in.

Wool and polyester blend

It is the most common of the current blended wool fabrics. Almost all the fields of coarse and fine wool are involved. Compared with the whole polyester, the addition of polyester will make the wool blended fabric light and light, wrinkle recovery good, firm and wearable, easy to wash and dry, long pleats, stable size, not easy to insects, but the hand feel will be reduced and the higher the polyester content, the more obvious. Therefore, the ratio is usually between 5 and 60, which can maintain the advantages of wool and the advantages of polyester.
