Soybean protein fiber

Soybean protein fiber monofilament has fine size, small volume and mass, high strength and elongation, acid and alkali resistance, good gloss and moisture absorption and moisture conductivity. It has cashmere-like soft handle and silk-like soft luster, and is known as "artificial cashmere". From the characteristics of the two, the spinnability of the blends should be improved, and the pilling phenomenon will also be improved. Two points need to be pointed out:

(1) The dyeing properties after blending, especially the levelness of dyeing, should be paid attention to.

(2) Due to the poor thermal stability, the finishing temperature also needs attention.

Tencel fibers

Tencel fiber has a skin-core structure, because the cortex is very thin, close to the whole core structure, and the core is composed of highly crystalline and oriented giant fibrils and amorphous areas. This characteristic determines that the fiber has high moisture absorption and dyeability. The cellulose crystallization in the longitudinal parallel arrangement of the fibers makes the fibers have higher strength, which is close to the strength of polyester fibers, which is conducive to its spinning of high-strength yarns. Under wet condition, 85% of the fiber strength can be maintained. In addition, it has excellent high wet modulus, which makes the shrinkage of the fabric very low, only about 2%, so it has better dimensional stability and easy preservation. The fiber combines the comfort of cotton, the high strength of polyester, the high moisture absorption and drape of viscose, and the feel and luster of silk.

Tencel and cashmere fibers have soft characteristics. The smooth glutinous blended cashmere and Tencel complement each other smoothly, making cashmere/Tencel knitted sweaters especially comfortable and natural. Moreover, Tencel fiber has high strength. After blending, it can make up for the shortage of cashmere fiber strength and become an ideal high-grade light and thin product.

Cotton fiber;

By blending with cashmere fibers, cotton fabrics are given a soft feel, or fine fluff is produced on the surface of the fabrics, which improves the quality of traditional style cotton fabrics. Considering the price of cashmere, the proportion of blended cashmere is generally controlled at 10-20%, yarn count is developing towards high branching. The texture structure is mostly twill, fine texture and natural luster. Especially in the post-finishing process, light-lifting and soft treatment need to show the excellent performance of cashmere fiber, while avoiding cashmere fiber damage. In Italy, cotton and cashmere blended fabrics are the best products of leisure cotton fabrics, and the clothing market is more and more fond of this kind of high quality fabrics. In China, this technology is also being studied, but no large-scale production has been carried out. The development of such fabrics will help to improve the value of cotton fabrics and become a new hotspot in the application of cashmere fibers.
