What Is Chameleon Fabric?
Chameleon fabric, also called nylon polyester fabric, refers to all fabrics with a two-tone effect. It is often fabric woven from cationic yarns, which foreigners call two-tone/cationic fabric. It is made of nylon and polyester. It is interwoven with polyester yarn as the weft through interweaving and finally combined into a two-color chameleon fabric in a smooth manner. As a cost-effective fabric, this fabric is also a substitute for dyed-yarn fabrics and has the characteristics of nylon and polyester.
Chameleons are reptiles and are good at changing the color of their body at any time as the environment changes.
Composition of Chameleon Fabric
Chameleon fiber fabrics are mainly made of nylon and polyester fibers. Chameleon fiber fabrics are chemical fiber fabrics. The fabrics are generally two-color, and their color is bright like a rainbow. Chameleon fiber fabrics are mainly made of 88% polyester yarn, 9% nylon yarn, and 3% spandex yarn by interweaving.
Advantages of Chameleon Fabric
The chameleon fabric has a soft and thick feel, good straightness and drape, so it is suitable for the production of jackets, mountaineering suits and dresses that require crispness.
It has excellent luster and dazzling colors. Clothes made of it have gorgeous colors, and the brightness changes with the angle of light. People will be more noble and gorgeous after wearing it. The raw material of this fabric is chemical fiber, so the abrasion resistance of the fabric is better than natural fabrics such as pure cotton.
In terms of price, chameleon fiber fabrics are more competitive. Materials such as polyester and nylon are relatively cheap. The wholesale prices of this fabric currently on the market generally range from a few yuan to a dozen yuan.
Disadvantages of Chameleon Fabric
Its biggest disadvantage is poor air permeability, which is caused by the characteristics of chemical fiber materials. It will be more stuffy if you wear this kind of clothing in summer.
Application of Chameleon Fabric
It is suitable for evening gown, suits, long dress and casual wear. Because the colors are brighter, this fabric can also be used to produce art performance clothes.
