What Is Healthy Fabric?
Healthy fabric (also known as air layer) usually refers to a sandwich double-sided cloth with cotton on one side and silk on the other side.
There are many types of fabrics, the more common ones are cotton, linen and polyester fabrics, etc. Here I will introduce to you a kind of clothing fabric that we are more commonly used but are less familiar with. We call it healthy fabric or healthy cloth, and some people call it air layer cloth. The healthy cloth is a kind of blended fabric. The material of this fabric is generally polyester or cotton, and it is spun with 5% to 10% spandex during production. Healthy cloth has many characteristics and some defects.

Advantages of Healthy Fabric
The healthy cloth is a double-layered double-sided cloth with a smooth texture. It has excellent moisture absorption and air permeability. The healthy cloth is treated with radiation protection during processing. Some professional or work clothes are produced with this fabric. In addition, healthy cloth also has a certain degree of warmth retention, and the warmth retention of cotton health cloth will be more prominent.
This kind of fabric with sandwich structure has good elasticity. If a small amount of spandex is spun into it, its elasticity will be stronger. This feature meets the requirements of sportswear. In addition, the fabric itself has the function of perspiration, so the health fabric is also a common production material for fitness apparel and sportswear.
Healthy cloth is stiff and smooth. The grain on the surface of the cloth is clear and has certain wrinkle resistance. The cloth has good wear resistance and is not easy to deform. It is also convenient to take care of. Most of the school uniforms we wear at school are made of this kind of cloth. More importantly, the price of health cloth is more affordable. The price of polyester health cloth is in the tens or twenties yuan.
Disadvantages of Health Fabric
Health cloth has a high cost performance. Cloth itself has no big defects, but the poor quality of healthy cloth is prone to pilling.
