Fabrics woven or knitted from polyester thread
or yarn are used extensively in apparel and home furnishings, from
shirts and pants to jackets and hats. Polyester fabrics are
highly stain-resistant. In fact, the only class of dyes which
can be used to alter the color of polyester fabric are what are
known as disperse dyes.
A textile or cloth
is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial
fibers (yarn or thread). Polyester is one of the many different
types of textiles that can be used to make clothes or fashion accessories.
Clothing can be manufactured with 100% polyester fabrics or blended
fibers. Polyester fibers are sometimes spun together with
natural fibers to produce a cloth with blended properties.
blends (poly/cotton) can be strong, wrinkle and tear-resistant,
and reduce shrinking. Synthetic fibers in polyester also create
materials with water, wind and environmental resistance compared
to plant-derived fibers. Cons of cotton and polyester blends include
being less breathable than cotton and trapping more moisture while
sticking to the skin. They are also less fire resistant and can
melt when ignited. Polyester blends have been renamed so as
to suggest their similarity or even superiority to natural fibers
(for example, China silk, which is a term in the textiles industry
for a 100% polyester fiber woven to resemble the sheen and durability
of insect-derived silk).
