Cotton and linen: the collective name for cotton and linen blended fabrics. Cotton and linen blending refers to a textile product made of cotton and linen mixed and spun yarn in a certain ratio. Cotton and linen blended fabric has the advantages of environmental protection, breathability, comfort, good drape, and comfortable wearing. Because the fabric has good elasticity and abrasion resistance in both dry and wet conditions, the size is stable, the shrinkage rate is small, it has the characteristics of tall and straight, not easy to wrinkle, easy to wash, and quick-drying, and it is woven with all natural fibers, low-carbon and environmentally friendly , Which is consistent with the current international textile and apparel fashion trends, so it is very suitable for clothing and home textile fabrics.

Advantages: excellent air permeability, fast moisture absorption and dehumidification, light and cool, at the same time antibacterial, mildew, anti-static, anti-radiation and anti-allergic. Disadvantages: Suitable for hand washing, easy to deform, fluff, serious floating, easy to yellow, and easy to fade after exposure.

Hemp: There are many varieties of hemp fiber, but only several soft hemp fibers such as ramie, flax, jute and apocynum can be used as textile fiber materials. The main component of hemp is cellulose, in addition to pectin, fat, lignin and so on. Advantages: strong, not easy to tear, breathable, unique cool feeling, not sticky when sweating; bright color, good natural luster, not easy to fade, not easy to shrink; heat conduction and moisture absorption are larger than cotton fabric, friction and resistance High temperature, acid and alkali resistance, mildew resistance, not susceptible to damp and mildew; anti-moth and mildew resistance, low dust collection rate, no static electricity.

Disadvantages: rough hand feeling, not slippery and comfortable to wear, easy to wrinkle, poor drape; hemp fiber steel is hard, poor cohesion. 2. Not easy to rot, not easy to burn

Flax: It is a kind of plant bast fiber, which is 30% stronger than cotton fiber. Advantages: cool and comfortable, excellent breathability and moisture absorption, at the same time resistant to dirt and bacteria, not easy to pilling or fluffing, and will not shrink, machine washable, easy to maintain. Disadvantages: The fiber characteristics of flax determine that it is easy to wrinkle, has poor color fixation, slight fading and poor dimensional stability.

Silk and linen fabric is a blend of real silk and linen, which is relatively high-end. Advantages: The appearance style of natural hemp fabrics is crisp, drape is general, and air permeability is good.

Disadvantages: Unstable shrinkage, easy to wrinkle, poor color fastness, dry cleaning is best.

Silk: A textile made of silk or synthetic fibers, man-made fibers, and filaments; it is a general term for various silk fabrics woven from silk as raw materials. Advantages: brilliant colors, rich luster, noble and elegant, comfortable to wear, sound absorption, dust absorption, heat resistance, UV resistance, good moisture absorption and desorption. Disadvantages: easy to wrinkle, easy to suck, not strong enough, and fade faster.

Tencel: It is a cellulose fiber, using solvent spinning technology, the dry strength is slightly lower than polyester, but significantly higher than the general viscose fiber. Fabric features: the first environmentally friendly chemical fiber, biodegradable. Advantages: good strength, silky drape and soft feel, good wrinkle resistance. Disadvantages: There is no elasticity, the outer layer of the friction fiber will break, forming a hair of about 1 to 4 microns, especially in the wet state, it is easier to produce, and it will be entangled into cotton particles in severe cases. The fabric will be in a hot and humid environment. Will harden slightly.

Silk: generally refers to silk, including mulberry silk, tussah silk, castor silk, cassava silk, etc. Real silk is called the "fiber queen" and has been favored by people throughout the ages for its unique charm. Real silk belongs to protein fiber. Advantages: smooth hand feeling, rich luster, comfortable to wear, good air permeability and drape.

Disadvantages: poor anti-wrinkle ability, poor light resistance, not long-term exposure, sensitive to alkali reaction, high temperature variability.
