Cotton is the widest used natural fibre that is derived from the cotton plant. It is one of the most popular materials in the textile industry due to its versatility, comfort, and durability. Cotton fabric is soft, breathable, and absorbent. Lost In Fabric works with Turkish cotton, also known as Aegean cotton – a high-quality type of cotton that is grown and harvested in the Aegean region of Turkey, known for its long fibres.
Wool is a natural fibre that comes from the fleece of sheep and other animals such as goats, llamas, and alpacas. It is a versatile material that is widely used in the textile industry for a variety of applications, from clothing and blankets to carpets and upholstery. Wool has many desirable properties, such as its natural insulating properties, which make it warm and cosy. It is also durable and resilient, making it an excellent choice for garments that are subject to wear and tear.
Silk is a luxurious and highly prized natural fibre that is obtained from the cocoons of silkworms. It is known for its smooth, lustrous texture and is used in a variety of applications, from clothing and bedding to home furnishings and accessories. Silk is a strong and durable material, yet it is also lightweight and comfortable to wear, making it ideal for use in clothing.
Polyester is a synthetic fibre that is widely used in the textile industry. It is easy to care for, as it can be machine-washed and dried without losing its shape or colour. It is often blended with other fibres such as cotton to create fabrics with enhanced durability and performance. While polyester is not as breathable as natural fibres such as cotton or wool, it is often used in sportswear and other athletic apparel due to its moisture-wicking properties.
Nylon is a synthetic fibre that was first introduced in the 1930s as an alternative to silk. It is made from petroleum-based products and is known for its strength and durability. Nylon is a lightweight and versatile material that is commonly used in the production of hosiery, lingerie, and other types of clothing. Nylon is water-resistant and dries quickly, making it a popular choice for outdoor gear such as rain jackets and tents.
Spandex, also known as Lycra or elastane, is a synthetic fibre that was first introduced in the 1960s. It is known for its exceptional elasticity and ability to stretch up to 600% of its original length without losing its shape. Spandex is commonly used in the manufacture of clothing, especially sportswear and athletic apparel, as it allows for a full range of motion and provides support and compression where needed.
