Weaves • Natural
Fibres • Man Made Fibres
WEAVES are often mistaken for types of fabrics. eg satin is a type of weave, and does not denote fabric content and can be woven from silk, polyester, acetate, or even blends of fibres. Different fibre content contributes to the hand and drape of the satin fabric.
BLENDS consist of two or more fibres and, ideally, are supposed to take on the characteristics of each fibre in the blend. The burning test can be used but the fabric content will be an assumption.
THE BURN TEST CAUTION. WARNING. BE CAREFUL! This should only be done by skilled burners! Have a bucket of water to hand and best to burn in metallic container. Bucket for example.
To identify unknown fabric a simple burn test can be done. This will determine if the fabric is a natural fibre, man made fibre, or a blend of natural and man made fibres. This elimination process will give information necessary to decide the care of the fabric.
WARNING: All fibres will burn! Asbestos treated fibres are, for the most part fire proof. Use a small piece of fabric only. Hold the fabric with tweezers, not your fingers. Burn over a metal dish with soda in the bottom or even water in the bottom of the dish. Some fabrics will ignite and melt. The result is burning drips which can adhere to fabric or skin and cause a serious burn.
