Y.T SILKS – Viscose Spandex Fabrics for Apparel

Spandex and viscose blended fabrics combine the advantages of both materials, resulting in a superior fabric. Here are some of the benefits:

Versatility: Viscose is known for its silk-like feel, draping well and being breathable1. It’s also inexpensive and dyes easily. Spandex, on the other hand, is known for its exceptional elasticity, being able to stretch 5-8 times its original length without losing its shape.

Strength and Durability: Spandex is not brittle, has high elongation, low elastic modulus, and rapid elastic recovery. It’s also resistant to body oils, perspiration, and sunscreen, making it a great choice for swimwear. When these two are blended, the fabric becomes more durable.

Improved Performance: Blending improves the performance of the fabric. It allows us to combine the different qualities of fibers, emphasize their good, and minimize their bad qualities.

Aesthetics: Viscose has a beautiful silky appearance and feel. The blend can also produce cross-dye effects.

Easy Care: Blended fabrics can allow easier care. Spandex is known for its resilience and easy care.

Remember, the specific advantages can vary depending on the exact blend and the proportions of spandex and viscose used.
