Different types of T-shirt Fabrics


There are different types of fabrics that are used to make T-shirts. People may have the preference of one fabric over the other. What fabric are you comfortable to wear is the most important question. One of the common material to make t-shirts include cotton. The other fabrics include Linen, polyester, rayon, etc.

Cotton T-shirts.

Even though the basic choice of a consumer might be cotton, it is important to remain educated about the different varieties of cotton available in the stores. One of the varieties of cotton includes combed cotton. Here, the very short threads are removed from the long fibre threads. The fibres are then straightened out using a fine brush. This makes the fabric coarser and stronger. Organic cotton is generally stronger, softer and comfortable than combed cotton. This is because organic cotton is cultivated using minimal fertilizers and pesticides. Supima cotton is exclusively manufactured in the United States. Pima cotton is the exclusive variety of Cotton. Unlike the combed cotton. The shorter fibres aren’t taken out. Hence the shirts are made if long threads of fibres are making it more durable and stronger. T-Shirts are made from slub cotton also. The cotton variety lumps texture on the fabric. The lumps are due to the technique the cotton undergoes before it is woven. The cotton is twisted and turned before weaved. The t-shirts made this way enables air circulation and does not stick to the body. The fabric looks very natural and can be worn even without ironing!

Linen T-Shirts.

Linen is another material that is made from the flax plant. It is closely woven together and appears finely coursed. Linen fabrics can be dyed white called the white linen. White linen is preferred during the summers since it does not absorb much sunlight. Linen is often expensive as its threads often break during the process of weaving. Unlike cotton, Linen is not elastic. Linen cloth is more expensive than the cotton fabric. Linen is more light weighted and cooler. Ironing linen t-Shirts are compulsory as they get wrinkled up very easily. Linen since expensive is mostly worn by the elite crowd.

Polyester T-Shirts.tshirt

Polyester is not elastic and hence does not stretch. Unlike the Linen, polyester does not require ironing.

Rayon T-shirts.

Rayon cloth is usually used by the athletes. Rayon is made from artificial or manmade fibre from trees or cotton. The texture of rayon is very silky. The clothes made from rayon can be draped easily, and it provides good air circulation. The material is absorbent and dry’s easily. Rayon material gets wrinkled up very easily. A modal is a form of Rayon. The T-shirt made from Modal is suitable to wear during the summers.

Lycra T-Shirts.

Lycra is much similar to Rayon and enables easy movement.

Everything you need to know about linen


The first use of linen has been traced to many years back, as far as 8000 BC. Linen is the oldest textile in the World. Fragments of straw, flax yarns and fibres are used in the process of making linen. Studies have found cave Georgia women using linen made from flax seeds. In Egypt, the currency was created using linen. In olden times, linen was linked to purity, wealth and a symbol of light. In Egypt again, mummies were wrapped in linen before lying them in a tomb. The richer sections wrapped the bodies with richer linen material. This was one way to showcase their splendor. In 1923, the Germans copied the Egypt style of printing currency on linen.

What does linen mean?

The term linen is derived from a Latin word which means flax plant. Linen can be processed from the seed of flax. Many think it is derived from a line; as many lines of linen threads, are joined together to form the fabric. It is also is referred to as lining as linen is used to form the inner lining of wool or leather fabrics. In the ancient days, flooring of houses was also done using linen.

History of Linen.



The first use of linen was found in the form of dyed flax fibres in a cave in Georgia in 3600 BC. This lead to the discovery that people used flax seeds to produce linen. Flax seeds were seen to be cultivated in Mesopotamia for producing linen for the upper class. Many times the usage of linen is linked with the wealthy class. In Mesopotamia, linen was often worn by the wealthy priests. People wore white coloured linen during summers as it absorbs very little heat. It is heard that priests of Isis also wore linen as it represented purity. Linen was found to be a decorative item to cover table tops and other furniture ware, bed coverings, etc. Linen is considered to more expensive than cotton because it is difficult to weave linen without breaking its thread. Unlike cotton thread, flax thread is not elastic. To make known the use and production worldwide, the United Nations announced 2009 to be the year of Natural Fibers. In 1213 BC, when the tomb of Pharaoh was discovered, the linen wrapped around his body was found to be intact. In the 12th century, the Merchants tried to trade and commercialize flax seeds across the Mediterranean and Ireland to produce Linen. In many cultures, wool and linen are intermingled to produce shaatnez. Fibres made from flax would be 12 to 16 micrometers in diameter. The coarse of material depends on whether the fibre is longer or shorter. For fine coarse fabrics, long line fibres are used. For coarser fabrics, shorter tow fibres are used. The cross-section of linen fibre contributes to its coarse texture.
