Qualities Of Good Fabrics
When choosing a fabric for your clothings, there are a number of basic fabric characteristics and properties that you will want to take into account. These are physical characteristics that you can often tell by touch or by looking at a piece of fabric. The most common ones are detailed below, however, there are so many different fabric characteristics and properties, that if we were to list them all, you’d never get round to that project you’re planning.
Breathability – This is the fabric’s ability to allow moisture vapour to be passed through the material. This helps the clothing that is made from it to not become too warm or uncomfortable. Due to this, breathable fabrics are great for sportswear.
Weight – If you’re making a summer dress, you don’t want a really heavy fabric, and if you’re making a coat, you’re unlikely to want a fabric so lightweight you can see through it. So choosing the right fabric weight for your project is key.
Drape – This, in essence, is how your fabric hangs. If it hangs in graceful folds, it is said to have a good drape. If there isn’t any drape or very little drape, it would have poor drape. These are stiff fabrics; and they are incredibly useful for certain things, for example detailing on a mask for a costume.
Durability – Durability is sometimes just as important in fabrics as it is in tyres. If you are making, for example, a hat, you want it to be able to withstand being put on and taken off hundreds of times. If you are making cushion covers, you want them to last throughout people sitting on them and leaning on them.
Softness – Sometimes you need your material to be super soft; if you are making clothing or blankets for example. However sometimes a coarser, textured or stiffer fabric is required. Take into account how soft or otherwise you need your fabric to be.
