FABRIC CARE

by Kumar Scarffeya 26 Jan 2022

Satin Silk

Silk is a natural proteins fiber produced by insects via their nests and cocoons. Silk has an elegant shine and softness that is near luxurious. And, satin is a type of weave that can be characterized by its soft and shiny finish that can be seen in fancy dresses, evening bags and upholstery. Satin can be characterized by a soft, lustrous surface on one side with a duller surface on the other.
In hindsight, satin silk is a weave that is primarily made from silk. This fabric is considered more superior than satin synthetics because of the feel of the material. Moreover, because of it being made from natural fibers, this fabric will not attract static electricity, and it breathes as fabrics made from natural fibers do.
Washing and caring satin must be handled with care, this means it can be washed by hand or the delicate cycle in cold water with some gentle detergent. To preserve the color, turn the garment inside out whenever it needs to be laundered. Keep in my mind, to not wring dry satin silk fabric as it will lose its shape relatively easily. This also means, steer clear from putting it in the dryer. Instead hang it on a padded hanger or lay it flat on a dry clean towel.

 

Chiffon

Chiffon is a weaving process that produces a lightweight fabric with a slight shine. The weave results in small puckers that make the fabric slightly rough to the touch. Since chiffon is a weave that is mixed with another fabric it produces a transparent appearance and gives a spandex-like feel that can be stretchy.

To properly care for chiffon is purely dependent on the fiber that comprises the fabric. A good rule-of-thumb is to wash and soak in cold water for not more than 30 minutes so as to preserve the dye, evade from wringing or using clips as it will create marks on the fabric. Also avoid direct sunlight as it can fade the hue of the fabric.

 

Lace

Lace is a fabric with intricate patterns that is weaved with linen, synthetics fibers and metallic threads. Due to its open weave, lace fabrics are delicate and should be handled with utmost care. Also, just like chiffon, the level of care for the lace fabric is determined by the fibers used in creating it.

In general, laces should be hand washed using cool water and a mild, gentle detergent. Moreover, when washing, avoid any scrubbing so as to preserve the fibers. Similarly, to not wringing the fabric after every wash. However, if hand washing is out of the question, place the garment in a mesh lingerie bag and run it under the gentle cycle. When it comes to drying, hang lightweight items on padded hangers. And for the heavier garments tumble dry it, with pieces that have no buttons or zippers so as to avoid any snags.

 

Crêpe

Crêpe or crepe is a luxurious fabric that is made from any fabric. Crepe can be thin and lightweight or thick and heavyweight. Crepes are commonly known for their beautiful drape which are popular for evening gowns, suiting and shawls. It is also distinctive for its winkled and bumpy appearance. Because of this distinction it is called crepe, from the French word, small and thin pancakes.

Since crepes are made of a variety of different fibers. The level of care can only be taken into account based on its fiber. But for a good rule-of-thumb, crepes need to be dry cleaned. If the garment was washed in a machine, it will cause significant shrinking. In rarer cases, crepe can be hand washed in cold water and them laid flat to dry.

 

Cotton

Cotton is the most widely used natural fabric in the world. But because of its wide use, often times it will be mixed in with other fibers to create another more superior fabric.

A good guideline is to wash the garments in a suitable temperature of 30°C to 40°C. Be sure to either air dry to preserve the fabric and out of the sun to avoid the dye from fading. 

 

Despite all the advice given above, be sure to consult the care label for your garments before washing or drying.
