Sofa fabrics have different classification methods according to different types
According to the classification of raw materials, there are cotton, linen, and chemical fiber.
And there are many kinds of chemical fibers, including polyester, acrylic, viscose, rayon and so on. Many chemical fiber fabrics are mixed with several components.
As for silk and wool, it is very rare. I have been making sofas for more than ten years and have never touched it.
According to the dyeing method, there are dyed and yarn-dyed.
Dyeing means weaving the fabric first, and then dyeing the color; yarn-dyeing means dyeing the yarn first, and then weaving.
No matter what the composition of the cloth is, it can be made into dyed cloth or yarn-dyed cloth. Generally, the monochromatic fabrics are basically dyed fabrics, and the non-monochromatic fabrics are all yarn-dyed fabrics.
According to the type of yarn, there are suede, chenille yarn and so on.
Imitation suede is a kind of fabric that looks like suede, the composition is all polyester, and there are many in the market.
Chenille yarn is a relatively thick yarn that looks fluffy. The cloth woven from chenille is collectively called chenille. There are many kinds of ingredients, polyester and viscose can be made into chenille. This cloth is thicker and more rugged in style. There are more on the market now.
The fabric ingredients that the store tells you are basically mixed with various names, not according to a uniform standard. Common ones are suede, chenille, yarn-dyed, cotton, linen.
These fabrics are not good or bad, but each has different characteristics.
According to the price, for the same weight fabric, polyester is the cheapest, cotton is a little more expensive, and linen is much more expensive. But many yarn-dyed or chenille fabrics are heavier and thicker, so the price will be higher.
Different fabrics are suitable for different styles of sofas. Modern styles and sofas with a strong sense of line are more suitable for cotton or linen; for more classical styles, chenille and yarn-dyed fabrics are used.
Therefore, when choosing a sofa, it is not necessary to choose which kind of fabric, but also the color and style of the fabric.
