A Note About Fabric Content - Fabrics are woven from yarns made from a wide variety of fibers - cotton, linen, polyester, polyester, acrylic and blends of all of these. The fibers can be woven into lots of different types of weaves - twill / denim, flat / duck, velvet, chenille and hundreds more. Here are the properties:
- Cotton & Linen - These are natural fibers, they are derived from plants. They need special care to prevent shrinking, staining or fading. Note - pre-washing does not prevent shrinking.
- Polyester & Acrylic - These are synthetic fiber, man-made. They are very durable and easy to maintain.
- Fiber Blends - There are combinations of two or more types of fibers. This is done to combine the properties of the different fibers - softness, durability, etc.
- Crypton - Crypton is a manufacturing process, not a finish. It is a way the fabric is made, it is PERMANENT and will not wash out. It gives the fabric stain, moisure, mildew, bacteria and odor resistance. And, since it does not wash out, it is Earth friendly and California GreenGuard Gold Certified - no emissions.
