Polyester is a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked by ester groups, used chiefly to make synthetic textile fibers.  Polyester fibers are sometimes spun together with natural fibers to produce a cloth with blended properties. Cotton-polyester blends (polycot) can be strong, wrinkle- and tear-resistant, and reduce shrinking. Synthetic fibers using polyester have high water, wind and environmental resistance compared to plant-derived fibers.
