Viscose refers to viscose fiber. Viscose fiber is made of natural wood, reed, cotton linters and other cellulose as raw materials, and is made by chemical processing. It is divided into filament and short fiber. Filament is also called rayon or viscose; short fiber has cotton type (also called rayon), wool type (called artificial wool) and medium and long fibers.
Viscose fabric has the essence of cotton fabric, but also has good silk quality. It is an authentic fiber fabric. Viscose fiber is derived from and superior, because viscose fiber is obtained by optimizing the processing of cotton with relatively short piles as raw materials. Therefore, viscose fiber is more pure in nature than cotton fiber. For example, the cellulose content of viscose fiber is above 99.5, while the cellulose content of cotton fiber is only around 95 to 97.
The antistatic properties of this fabric do not produce the feeling of being attached to the body, so it is very slippery and is especially suitable for sports wear. Its moisture content conforms to the physiological requirements of human skin, and has good air permeability and humidity control functions. Its fabric has the advantages of soft feel, smooth and cool, breathable, antistatic, and colorful. Disadvantages: After multiple washings, the hand feels hard; it is easy to pilling.
Wearing performance characteristics of viscose fiber fabrics
1. The moisture absorption performance of viscose fiber fabric is very good in chemical fiber, and its wearing comfort and dyeability are better than that of synthetic fiber fabric.
2. Viscose fiber fabrics are soft to the touch and brighter than other chemical fiber fabrics. In particular, there are pure spun and interwoven silk, brocade and other fabrics woven from light rayon, which are dazzling in color, soft and bright in luster, and have a gorgeous feeling.
3. Ordinary viscose fabric has good drape, poor stiffness, resilience and wrinkle resistance, and has a large shrinkage rate of about 8% to 10%. Clothing has poor shape retention and wash durability, but is inexpensive.
