Do you know some special materials for making socks?


Last time we show some information about the normal materials for making socks, do you know some special one? Let's talk about it today.

[Sock Material--Combed Cotton | Combed Cotton]

Combed cotton is a long, neat cotton fiber that is left behind by the use of a machine called a comber to remove shorter fibers from ordinary cotton fibers. Due to the removal of short cotton fibers and other fibrous impurities, the yarn spun from the combed cotton is finer and the finished product feels smoother and more comfortable.

[Sock Material - Mercerized Cotton]

Mercerized cotton is a cotton fiber obtained by subjecting ordinary cotton fibers to a mercerizing process in a concentrated alkali solution. Under the premise that the performance of other physical indexes does not change, the cotton fiber has better gloss than ordinary cotton fibers (slightly shiny, like silk), feels smoother, and is less prone to wrinkles. The material of mercerized cotton is often seen in thin socks in summer.

[Sock Material--Polypropylene | Polypropylene]

Polypropylene is a name with Chinese characteristics and should actually be called polypropylene fiber. Because there is a C word in the name, plus the name is XX Lun in the past, it is called polypropylene. The biggest advantage of polypropylene is its light texture, but its own hygroscopicity is very weak and it is almost non-hygroscopic, so the moisture regain is close to zero. However, its wicking effect is quite strong, it can transfer water vapor through the fibers in the fabric, which means that the socks containing polypropylene components have a very strong perspiration function. Moreover, since the strength of the polypropylene is very high, abrasion resistance and stretch resistance, the polypropylene-containing component is often seen in sports socks.

[Sock Material - Viscose | Viscose Rayon]

This is also a very common fiber component that can be seen on the label of some clothing's ingredients, usually abbreviated as Rayon, which is actually viscose. The expressions of merchants are often not consistent, and rayon, ice silk, etc. all refer to the same thing. Do not think that viscose is a non-natural product. In fact, viscose fiber is a fiber produced from cotton or other natural fibers. It is characterized by softness and elegance, and the addition of viscose to the textile can make the hand feel smoother and make the fabric shiny. Since the viscose is produced from natural fibers, the name and characteristics of the viscose produced by different natural fibers are different.

[Sock Material - Tencel | Tencel]

The popular TENCEL in the past few years is actually a kind of viscose fiber. Like Leica itself, it is a trade name of spandex. Tencel is actually a trade name. It is the trade name of LYOCELL fiber produced by the British company Acocdis. In China, it is registered as "Tiansi". Tencel is a brand new cellulose fiber produced by solvent spinning of wood pulp from coniferous trees. Its comfort is comparable to that of cotton, it has good toughness, silky touch and gloss, and good drape. Therefore, many knitwear like to use Tencel as raw material. Tencel is the first cellulosic fiber with a wet strength far better than cotton in the wet state. Because Tencel uses 100% pure natural materials and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes, it fully caters to the needs of modern consumers and is called "green fiber in the 21st century."

[Sock Material--Bamboo Fiber | Bamboo Fibre]

In recent years, the relatively fashionable bamboo fiber is also a viscose fiber. The raw material of bamboo fiber comes from bamboo. Since the regeneration of bamboo is much faster than wood, it is more environmentally friendly in this contemporary industrialized production. Bamboo fiber fabrics are also soft and elegant, comfortable to wear, and wear-resistant, ball-free, moisture-absorbing, quick-drying, and breathable. It differs from cotton, wood and other viscose fibers in that it has good antibacterial properties and health care effects. Bamboo fiber contains an antibacterial substance called "bamboo", which has natural antibacterial, anti-mite and deodorant properties. In addition, the ultraviolet transmittance of bamboo fiber is 0.6%, which is 41.6 times that of cotton. It is a very good raw material for anti-UV fabrics."Antioxidant compounds in bamboo can effectively remove free radicals in the body, have anti-aging biological effects; contain a variety of essential amino acids, and bamboo cellulose, bamboo dense, pectin has the effect of moisturizing the skin and anti-fatigue; It can increase the microcirculation blood flow of the human body, activate tissue cells, and make the human body produce a warming effect, which can effectively regulate the nervous system and clear the meridians to improve the quality of sleep." Although these health effects are justified, they are usually a textile. The health benefits are actually very small. However, this does not prevent us from choosing bamboo fiber products to experience it, especially bamboo fiber socks. The foot environment in summer is usually hot and humid, and the good breathability and antibacterial properties of bamboo fiber socks make it the first choice for summer socks.

[Sock Material - Modal / Modal | Modal]

This is a very popular textile fiber in recent years, belonging to the class of viscose. Developed by the Austrian company Lenzing, the European eucalyptus is beaten and spun, 100% natural, naturally decomposed, and harmless to the environment and the human body. The fabric treated with meldale fiber and cotton and polyester blended fabric has silky luster, good drape, soft and smooth handfeel. There are many manufacturers who use to make home clothes. The addition of Modal to the ingredients of the socks makes the overall feel softer and more comfortable, and is also a very popular textile.

[Sock Material - Hemp | Linen]

Hemp clothing is very popular in this year's market and is almost ready to become a replacement for cotton and silk. The most common and most commonly used raw materials for linen garments in the Chinese market are flax and ramie. These two kinds are extracted from flax and ramie plants, which are very important textile fibers, and are called four major textile materials with cotton, wool and silk. Hemp fiber is soft and strong, and the high-density and high-density hemp fabric is lustrous, wear-resistant and has good heat dissipation performance, so it is very suitable for wearing hemp clothing in summer.
