A brief introduction to fat and thin silk

Fatty silk is characterized by its chemical resistance and frequent washing to reduce fading and discoloration of clothing. Therefore, products such as hotel uniforms, stone blue denim, sportswear or children's clothing are mostly made of fat and thin silk.


Fat and thin silk is tougher than rayon. When embroidering, the machine runs at high speed, and the high-tenacity fat and thin silk can withstand greater tension; its fire resistance is high, even if the clothes are close to the flame, it is not easy to catch fire. The yarn quality of fat and thin silk is not as stable as that of rayon, but it is more elastic. You can cut the rayon to test, pull it hard, then relax and find that the embroidery thread doesn't shrink too much; instead, the fat and thin thread is pulled, and once it relaxes, it returns to its original length, but this sometimes causes the flower to bend, Therefore, it is necessary to be more accurate when adjusting the tension of the fat and thin silk.

How to identify rayon, real silk, fat and thin silk:


Rayon has a bright sheen, a slightly rough feel and a warm feel. Hold it tightly with your hand and then release it, more wrinkles appear, and there are still marks after smoothing out, from which you can tell it's not fat. Rayon is straight and easy to break when wet rubbed, and its elasticity is different when wet or dry. Silk has a soft luster, soft feel, and delicate texture. When rubbing against each other, it will produce a special sound, which does not occur in fat and thin silk. Tighten it by hand, then release, the folds are less and less noticeable. The dry and wet elasticity of silk is relatively consistent.

The fat and thin silk has the characteristics of high reflectivity, high stiffness, rapid rebound, crispness, good wrinkle resistance, strong and firm, and not easy to break. Fat and thin silk is a chemical fiber, chemical fiber and natural fiber have their own characteristics, and the chemical fiber of fat and thin silk has a wide range of uses in applications. In addition to traditional clothing, it has also developed into industries such as automobiles, construction, indoor and outdoor decoration of buildings, labor protection, etc. The development direction of the application of fat and thin silk has turned to the non-garment field.

At present, the share of fat and thin silk in the total demand of East Asian and African clothing is increasing year by year, especially the excellent performance of fat and thin silk is a good choice for special industrial fields and occupies a special and important position.
