Although the luster of real silk satin is bright, it is soft, and the hand feels smooth and soft. The luster of imitation satin satin is more dazzling and feels rougher to the touch. Of course, a good imitation satin satin is not as good as real silk satin, but it is still good. Yes, we generally use it for linings and parts.
Features: Real silk fabrics are relative to imitation silk fabrics, generally refer to silk, including mulberry silk, tussah silk, castor silk, cassava silk, etc. There are roughly two types of silk fabrics: double crepe, heavy crepe, georgette burnt-out, georgette, double joe, heavy joe, sangbo satin, plain crepe satin, stretch plain crepe satin, warp knitting and so on. Excellent brands rely on high-tech production processes in the dyeing and finishing process of fabrics, using environmentally friendly dyes, and the color fastness is up to 3-4.5.
While allowing people to appreciate the unique color beauty of silk fabrics, the nutrition and naturalness of silk fabrics are maintained. In the fabric post-treatment process, different degrees of pre-shrinking treatment are also carried out to ensure that the garment shrinkage rate of the fabric used is 0.5-3%. The real silk fabric is pure silkworm white woven silk fabric, which is woven with a twill weave. According to the weight of the fabric in square meters, it is divided into thin and medium. According to different post-processing, it can be divided into dyeing and printing. Its texture is soft and smooth, the hand feels soft and light, the colors are colorful, and it is cool and comfortable to wear. Mainly used as summer shirts, pajamas, dress fabrics and headscarves, etc.
Dyeing performance: This kind of fabric has excellent dye properties, which can be dyed with acid, neutral, direct, active, cationic, reduction, soluble reduction, insoluble azo dyes, etc. But it is easily damaged in alkaline medium, so acid dyes are generally used as the main component, supplemented by neutral, direct and reactive dyes.
