A FABRIC BLEND
Fabric and textile blends are very popular for good reason. Making use of fabric blends can improve the overall quality and durability of a fabric. One could improve the benefits and properties of the fibers by making use of blends. Unfortunately, it can also be to produce a lower quality garment that is sold at a higher price, therefore it’s important what blends to look out for and which ones to skip. Different blends will be used in different ratios for different types of garments or other household items.
