There are countless fabrics on the market, good and bad, how to tell whether a custom-made cotton T-shirt is pure cotton? There are several methods to identify whether it is pure cotton, the most direct of which is the fire method.
1. Check the washing mark
Washable labels are labels made of several special materials, usually stitched on the inside of the back panel of a custom-made cotton T-shirt. Some clothing parameters and precautions are usually printed on the washing label (such as: whether it can be machine washed, dried, bleached). The marked clothing parameters are generally tested by a professional testing organization, and the 100% cotton fabric is pure cotton texture. If the custom-made T-shirt is marked as cotton, but it has been worn and washed several times and serious pilling occurs, it can basically be judged that there is a problem with the composition. It is unlikely that pilling will occur when scrubbing fabrics made of pure cotton.
Second, the characteristics of pure cotton fabrics for custom-made T-shirts
Pure cotton fabric has natural cotton flexibility, a rich and thick grip, and a slight resistance to astringency in the softness. In contrast, chemical fiber fabrics have a lighter and looser feel and a smoother touch.
The elasticity of pure cotton fabrics is poor, and the elasticity of clothing usually refers to the elasticity of vertical pulling rather than the elasticity of horizontal pulling. The recovery of chemical fiber fabrics is better, and it can recover quickly after vertical pulling. Pure cotton fabric has very small elasticity. Take a piece of pure cotton fabric and pull it. Generally, the pulling range is small and the recovery is slower. It is pure cotton. In addition, the pure cotton fabric feels astringent if it is touched by hand.
The pure cotton fabric has a lighter luster, not strong reflection, and looks softer.
4. Wearing experience
The pure cotton fabric is breathable and comfortable, absorbs water and sweat, and does not feel stuffy when wearing. Chemical fiber fabric is not easy to breathe, if not handled properly, it is easy to cover sweat.
Some pure cotton fabrics will be equipped with a small bag of cotton fabric to facilitate testing. If not, you can extract a little cotton thread from the fabric for burning. The pure cotton fabric can burn out, and at the same time it presents a normal bright yellow flame when it burns, accompanied by the smell of burning paper, and the ashes after burning appear black and gray. The chemical fiber fabric will produce some drips when it burns.
