Usually, we have a lot of ways to identify the cotton fabric, however in this post, I’m going to analyze 4 easy and fast but still effective ways to identify it for you. Help you or your family can choose the nicest pants.
1. Identify cotton fabric by looking at the radiance of the shine of fabric (looking directly)
This is the first and the most popular method with the tailors, with the people who have experience of garment, they only have to look at the surface of the fabric directly to identify the cotton elastic fabric and PE elastic fabric.
With the people who have experience of garment, they only have to take a glimpse to identify what that fabric really is, how much and how good it is. This way is quite hard with the customers who don’t have much experience of fabrics and garment. But in general, we have some following basic rules to identify the elastic fabric when look at it directly.
Cotton elastic fabric:
The surface of fabric is not shiny, the color is dark, it is rough and slightly hairy and you have to look at it closely to indentify.
Cotton elastic fabric.
PE elastic fabric:
It is totally contrary to cotton fabric, when look at PE elastic fabric, we see the shine of the surface of fabric, it is flat and smooth, light color, the stitches of fabric are straight and they seem parallel to each other, the surface is not hairy.
Look at the shine of the surface of fabrics directly when choosing the pants for thick belly people.
2. Identify cotton fabric by touching
This is also a popular way, can help you identify the elastic fabric more easily than looking directly method. With the people who don’t have experience of elastic fabric, this is the ideal way, you can apply it easily without having too much experience of garment. The rules for applying into identifying the fabric by touching are very simple:
Cotton elastic fabric:
When you use hand to touch the surface of fabric. You will have the typical feeling of cool, the fabric is soft, it will be crumpled when you crumple. If you can withdraw a stitch and separate it, then the separated spot is not neat. When you withdraw the sheet of fabric drastically, you will see that the fabric have good elasticity.
PE elastic fabric:
It is contrary to cotton fabric, we do not feel cool when touch it. It is mostly not crumpled when you crumple it lightly, even if you crumple it so hard, it will only be crumpled for a bit. When you withdraw the sheet of fabric drastically, you will see that the fabric have bad elasticity.
Touch the surface of fabric to identify the kind of fabrics when choosing clothes for people who have thick belly.
3. Identify cotton fabric by burning (the most accurate way)
In the other words: Heat method, this way is rarely applied due to it is so difficult to do at the apparel stores, and usually we can identify the fabric fast and easily by applying two above methods.
This is the way for the customers who cannot identify clearly by looking at and touching the surface of fabric. It is also the most accurate way to check for the situation when it is so difficult for you to identify the fabric.
The general rule is: The more the cotton material the fabric has, the stronger catching fire, easier to melt and the more smooth the ash of the fabric could be. And with the fabric has more PE material, the catching fire is weak, it is hard to be burned, when it is burned, it doesn’t turn into the normal ash but a ball of ash like when you burn plastic, beside that, we can also smell the burning smell of plasticity when you burn the PE fabric.
100% cotton elastic fabric:
It is easy to catch fire, it burns fast, like you are burning paper due to it has the smell of burning paper, the ash of fabric is grey, it melts easily and does not turn into a ball of ask.
65% of the fabric is elastic fabric:
It catches fire easily, it burns fast, it has the smell of plastic when it is burned, the ask melts fast, it rarely turn into ball.
35% of the fabric is elastic fabric:
It is difficult to catch fire, it burns slow, it smells like plastic relatively when it is burned. After burn, it becomes a ball of ash, does not melt when you crumple it but you still see a little amount of ash.
PE elastic fabric
It is the worst at catching fire, it burns slow, it doesn’t burn instantly but stick and distort into a ball and smells like the burning rubber like you burn the plasticity, the fire is precarious and easy to turn off.
Burn the sample fabric sheet to identify if it is 100% cotton fabric for the thick belly people or not.
4. Identify cotton fabric by making it wet
This is an easy way for people don’t have much experience of garment and also scientific way. Basically, the main material of cotton fabric is natural cotton and cotton is always “thirsty”. Therefore, the cotton fabric absorbs the water very fast. When we drop water on the surface of fabric, the wet spot spreads around.
And with the fabric has much PE material, because the essence of fabric is artificial and made of coal and oil so the fabric is not “thirsty”, therefore, when we drop water on it, it absorbs the water slow, the wet spot doesn’t spread widely.
- 100% cotton elastic fabric: the fabric absorbs water fast, the wet spot spreads widely.
- 65% of the fabric is elastic fabric: The fabric absorbs the water fast but not as fast as 100% cotton.
- 35% of the fabric is elastic fabric: The fabric absorbs the water slow, it seems very bad at absorbing water.
- PE elastic fabric: The fabric absorbs the water very slow, feel like doesn’t absorb the water at all, the wet spot doesn’t spread widely.
Making the fabric wet is easy way to identify the cotton fabric when choosing clothes for thick belly people.
The 4 ways to identify the cotton fabric we share to you here is quite easy to do for all people. 3 out of 4 ways can apply immediately without squandering time and effort. We hope this basic knowledge will be useful for you for choosing the exact cotton fabric and avoiding mistaking.
