Cotton blend is probably the most common fabric type used for making breathable jersey, comfortable underwear, lightweight summer garments and much more. One of the oldest fibers, 100% cotton has been at the top of the clothing list for centuries.
However, as technologies advanced, we have learned how to improve and enhance its natural qualities. For instance, a blend of premium fibers, added into the weave, strengthens cotton fabric. Metallic threads make cotton jacquard glitter like gold and silver. Fancy yarn, ribbons and other decorations lend cotton tweed boucle its characteristic knobby texture. A touch of elastane provides cotton velvet with some stretch making it perfect for bodycon silhouettes.
