When the fabric is weaving, the warp and weft structure changes to form a pattern, the yarn count is fine, and the raw cotton is extremely demanding. It can be divided into woven, warp-knitted jacquard and weft-knitted jacquard. Weft knitted fabrics have good elasticity when stretched horizontally and longitudinally, while warp-knitted and woven jacquard fabrics have no elasticity when stretched horizontally and vertically.
Washing: The clothing is made of protein-based delicate health-care fiber. It is not suitable to rub rough items and wash with a washing machine. The clothes should be immersed in cold water for 5-10 minutes. Use special silk detergent to synthesize low-foaming washing powder or neutral. Rub lightly with soap, (if you are washing small fabrics such as silk scarves, you can use shampoo better), and rinse the colored silk clothing in clean water repeatedly.
Drying: After washing, clothing should not be exposed to the sun, nor should it be heated with a dryer. Generally, it should be dried in a cool and ventilated place. Because the ultraviolet rays in the sun easily make silk fabrics yellow, fade and age. Therefore, after washing silk garments, it is not advisable to twist them to remove the water. They should be gently shaken, and the reverse side should be spread out to air. Let it be 70% dry before ironing or shaking.
Ironing: The anti-wrinkle performance of clothing is slightly worse than that of chemical fiber, so there is a saying that "no wrinkle is not real silk". After washing, the clothes are wrinkled and need to be ironed to be firm, elegant and beautiful. When ironing, let the clothes dry until 70% dry, then spray water evenly, wait 3-5 minutes before ironing, the ironing temperature should be controlled below 150°C. The iron should not directly touch the silk surface to avoid aurora.
Preservation: Preserve clothing. For thin underwear, shirts, trousers, skirts, pajamas, etc., wash them first, iron them dry, and store them. For autumn and winter clothing, jackets, Hanfu, and cheongsam that are inconvenient to take apart and wash, they should be cleaned with dry cleaning until they are ironed to prevent mildew and moth. After ironing, it can also play the role of sterilization and pest control. At the same time, the boxes and cabinets storing clothes should be kept clean and sealed as far as possible to prevent dust pollution.
