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.

 Cotton-polyester 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).
