Did You Know This About Spandex?

Here are some facts about spandex that will blow your mind

Spandex is a more popular name for elastane fibre

Spandex is capable of stretching up to 500% its size and recovering, without snapping

Elastane fibre was discovered by polymer chemist Farbenfabriken Bayer in the 1950’s as a cheaper alternative to rubber during the world war. Rubber was expensive and would weather easy. Since it was being used extensively for the construction of equipment, finding a cheaper alternative that would be stable in atmospheric shifts, was necessary. That is also why

Spandex does not weather in the presence of oil, sweat or mild detergents. Yes, it can be molded through heat setting at very high temperatures of 240 degree C

Spandex fabrics are more eco-friendly than natural fabrics because they are easy to recycle and use up less natural resources in their production or recycling process

While spandex blends may have either a 2 way stretch or a 4 way stretch depending up on their construction, spandex itself alone has a 4 way stretch which means that it can stretch in both horizontal and vertical directions at once

In the past people have complained of being allergic to spandex wear. That spandex causes allergy is a myth. Spandex does not trigger allergies but at the point of yarn twisting or fabric construction, if the elastane fibre is treated with substandard chemicals, those chemicals may trigger an allergic reaction.

Saving the best for last:

Spandex is actually an anagram of the word expands

All You Need To Know About Compression Wear

For those who don’t like the idea of even the slightest bumps revealing through tight fitted garments, compression wear is a blessing. Compression wear contours the body the way the wearer desires and supports it through long periods of use. But for those of you that didn’t know, compression wear has a purpose other than just shaping the body and concealing bulges-- there’s more.

There is an array of compression wear available in the market that serves the purpose of improving blood circulation, aside from controlling the appearance of the body and enhancing its appeal, thereby promoting well being through medical benefits.

These compression garments are made from special  that is, generally, a blend of spandex and nylon or polyester and sometimes cotton.

This type of hosiery yarn is special because it is very similar to regular spandex blend yarn in terms of appearance but it works secretly as a compression agent.

The fibre that is used to create this specialised Hosiery Yarn is crafted in a way that it has a controlled stretch that lends unique controlling abilities to the compression garment made out of it.

You will find this type of compression wear in the form of tights, tummy tuckers, stockings and socks. Earlier, compression wear came mostly in nude colours so that it would blend with the skin and not  show but designers are looking at making the functional garments fashionable by introducing new designs and textures so that it serves three purposes-- shaping the body, improving blood circulation and adding aesthetic appeal to your look while at it.

How Are Your Favourite Leggings Made?

Just the right amount of matt or shine…tailored for your legs and your legs only…velvety smooth like a rose petal…and most importantly, packing enough stretch to move around with ease-- all of these qualities and more make a pair of leggings, your favourite leggings. Leggings or jeggings or both. Have you ever wondered how your favourite leggings or jeggings are made? We’ll tell you how. Take some Bare Spandex yarn, some natural or synthetic yarn and a special machine that knits the two together. Bam! Your favourite legwear is ready.


Both jeggings and leggings are manufactured through a special knitting process called circular knitting. A circular knitting machine may look a bit complicated but the task it carries out is very simply defined. Several long needles work together to take bare spandex yarn and natural or synthetic hard yarn and interloop them again and again to create a smooth fabric in tubular form (for seamless leggings).

The fabric manufactured is inherently smooth and has stretch capabilities of its own, but the use of Bare Spandex yarn takes the stretch capabilities of the fabric to an increased level. The hard yarn used lends the leggings structure.

Some leggings are made using a flat knit technique. These types of leggings will have seams since they are cut out from a flat knit fabric and then sewn on a different machine.

Ergo, leggings or jeggings made using the circular knit technique will always be preferred over the ones made using a flat knit technique unless you are a fan if seams.

Taken For Granted Everyday- Elastane!

How is your skinny jeans stretchable… your bodycon dress snug but just enough breathable… your socks fitted but not suffocating… your intimate wear supportive but not restricting…? Don’t worry, we wont keep you guessing, the answer is-- Elastane fibre.

The presence of elastane fibre in all of the garments we mentioned renders them with one marvelous property-- stretch in structure. That means, even though your garment may appear small, snug and dangerously rigid, some of the attributes we associate with structured clothing, they magically turn pliant and expansive on stretching.

But the labels on these garments say cotton + spandex or polyester + spandex etc. So where is the elastane? Don’t get confused, spandex is the more common market name for elastane. What you see on the garment labels is the information of elastane or spandex blends with natural and synthetic yarns.

Yes, bare elastane fibre is never used in the manufacturing of garments. Like the very malleable 24K gold that needs to be amalgamated with stabler metals to be able to used in the make of jewellery, elastane needs to be blended with natural or synthetic yarns like cotton, rayon and polyester to maintain structure and fall out of shape on stretching.

While it is used in both fashion and functional garments, it would interest you to know that the elastane was actually invented as a substitute for rubber during World War II. Little did Mr. Farbenfabriken Bayer, polymerist and the inventor of elastane fibre, know that he would revolutionise the fashion and garments manufacture industry with just a little bit of stretch… a lot of stretch actually, elastane can expand upto 500% its size on stretching and recover on letting go!

5 SUMMER FABRICS YOUR WARDROBE SHOULDN’T MISS

During the dog days of summer, the struggle to stay cool and comfortable is real. Textile companies in India have therefore been continuously innovating and experimenting to bring forward fibers which can become the staple wear during the scorching summer heat. Since how you feel about yourself depends much on the fabrics you wear, which are endowed with the power to make your summers more breathable!

1.   Cotton

We all know that cotton is synonymous with comfort. It is our ‘go-to’ fabric whenever we are looking for comfort. Since it is a natural fiber, it is great for detracting moisture. However, maintaining a cotton garment requires special care. It has a tendency to shrink and therefore, it needs to be washed with care for long-lasting fit!

2. Linen



Linen is another material which has a relaxed and billowy feel to it.  It is a light-weight natural fiber which has great wicking capacities. If you are a regular linen user, you will know that it gets wrinkled very easily. Use an iron on low heat to bring it back in shape!

3. Seersucker




The fiber which first gained popularity in the warm weathered British colonies, have finally found acceptance in the land of its origin. The fabric is the latest obsession of textile companies in India. It is a puckered fabric which has a very relaxed feel to it. It also comes equipped with a lot of functional benefits like adaptability to machine wash. The fabric also does not require ironing since it already comes in a puckered texture!

4. Rayon



In spite of being a synthetic fiber, Rayon is a fabric which can help you handle summers in style. It is low on moisture wicking capacity but its weightless texture makes up for it. If you hate clingy clothing during summers, you better switch to Rayon.   

5. Eyelet



The mere sight of an eyelet top makes you feel cool and soothes you from within. It is a material which is a fine blending of the ethnic and the modern. Textile companies in India are glad it is so because it can help to take fusion wear to greater heights.

So if you are looking for relaxed tops and trousers this summer, choose your fabric wisely!

HOW TO STORE YOUR WINTER GARMENTS THIS SUMMER?

As summer approaches, there are a lot for changes which your wardrobe requires. You need to put away those heavy jackets and t-shirts and retrieve from the forgotten corners all your summery tops. The leather boots should be stored safely for the next season and all those slippers and sandals you had kept away should be brought out for action. Even though you do not require special training to learn how you should store your clothes, here are a few basic things that you must know in order to keep the longevity of your clothes and accessories intact. Follow these basic tips in order to keep your wardrobe fresh and organized throughout all the seasons.

l  Hang or fold clothes depending on the material



Opinions often conflict when deciding how you should wear clothes - whether you should fold them or hang them in your wardrobe. Although loyalists of both the methods strictly advice against opting for the other, the wisest thing to do is to check on the quality of the fabric and hang or fold them accordingly. Silk garments tend to crease when folded hence such materials should rather be hanged in the closet. On the other hand, woolen garments will droop when hanged and they should rather be folded and stored. Other materials like spandex are relatively easier to store because they are high on the versatility quotient. Since the last few years’ filament yarns manufacturers in India have been doing great business because of the popularity of .

l  Look out for the presence of spandex in clothes




Spandex is a highly durable fibre and the presence of it in clothes can help to increase their longevity. Filament yarn in India is now widely used in various garments such as sweaters, socks, and also in everyday wear. Filament yarn manufacturers in India argue that even cotton clothes should have a small percentage of spandex in it to ensure that they don’t get damaged with time.

l  Don’t use moth balls




In order to ensure that our clothes remain fresh and mold-free, we often use moth balls. But the components which are used in making moth balls have time and again been looked upon with a jaundiced eye. It is best to not use these balls since they contain harmful chemicals. The easiest alternative to moth balls are lavender and lemon feels which you can use for keeping clothes fresh throughout the year.              

l  Don’t forget to clean your clothes



The most effective mantra to keep your clothes protected is to ensure that you wash them before you finally store them away. Even if you store your clothes in the best ways possible, it would be pretty useless if you do not wash or dry clean them before doing so. You should also check the pockets of your clothes to ensure that you did not leave anything in them.

For the Love of T-shirts

If there is one best friend who we always fail to acknowledge, it has to be the good old t-shirt which has always been a loyal companion since our pre-teens. Back in the day we would bounce upon any opportunity to wear the t-shirt whenever the sports week arrived at school. Gradually as we reached college, it became a staple wear which we would slip on whatever the ocassion might be. Thanks to innovations in the  textile manufacturing industry, t-shirts now combine the stretchable property of spandex and air covered yarn with cotton in order to provide people with ultimate comfort. Inviya spandex yarn is a popular name among t-shirt manufacturers who have been relying much on this legendary freedom fibre to provide clothes with superior stretch.
 
Here are two popular tees which everyone of us have in our wardrobes.

1. The Quirky Tee
With a lot of catchy headlines and saying from movies, this is the t-shirt for anyone who strongly believes in the ‘power of silence’! Simply say nothing and let your clothes do the talking. However there are many low quality duplications which are available in the market. To stay away from such pieces make sure that you check for the presence of nviya spandex yarn in the contents tag.



2. The ‘Support A Cause’ Tshirt
Let your t-shirt scream out your ideology by wearing ‘Cause Tshirts’ which allow you to be vocal about the things you actually feel for. Go out for a campaign or take part in a protest by wearing it to spread awareness. However for long lasting utility, make sure that you check for the presence of air covered yarn developed by Inviya Spandex Yarn in it!



          
So incase you have not been wearing the tshirt for long, its time to pull them out of your wardrobes and pair them up with your favourite jeans!
