What Is Leggings Fabric?
What is leggings fabric? Before understanding the fabric of leggings, let us briefly understand the leggings.
The predecessor of leggings is fitness pants (also known as form-fitting pants). Leggings are a type of trousers used by female friends to prevent the inadvertent exposure of some private parts in some operations when wearing short skirts. Leggings also have very good warmth retention and can also play a role in self-cultivation. Wearing it reasonably can make the whole person more temperamental. In addition to matching short skirts, leggings can also be worn with suspenders, shorts and other clothing.
There are many kinds of fabrics for leggings made by different quality leggings manufacturers, including pure cotton, linen, wool, silk, woolen cloth, leather, chemical fiber, blended fabric, bamboo fiber, polyester fiber, spandex, modal fiber, mercerized cotton, milk silk, velvet, stretch cotton. Here I introduce 4 types of commonly used legging fabrics.
Leggings Fabric: Nylon
Nylon leggings are the most common on the market. First of all, nylon has excellent stretchability and elasticity, and it is not easily damaged after being pulled. Secondly, nylon has a certain degree of warmth retention, and there is no problem wearing it in early autumn or early winter. Finally, nylon is renewable and has low production costs, which is also one of the factors that make nylon leggings dominate the market.
Leggings Fabric: Pure Cotton
Compared with nylon, pure cotton has better comfort and warmth. However, the elasticity of pure cotton is not good, and 5% spandex is generally mixed in the production of leggings. Overall, the wearing experience of cotton leggings will be better than nylon, so the price is relatively high. The specific choice needs to be combined with personal preferences.
Leggings Fabric: Fine Cotton Blended Brushed Fabric
The fabric composition is 44% viscose + 44% cotton + 12% spandex. The width and weight of the fabric are 175cm and 260g/m². Being smooth, breathable and antistatic, this fabric is suitable for making leggings, bottoming shirts and other warm clothing.
Leggings Fabric: Bamboo Fiber
Bamboo fiber is known as the “fiber queen”. The fabric is soft, slippery, warm, close-fitting, comfortable, and environmentally friendly. It has good air permeability, resilience, water absorption and skin affinity. It can be widely used in woven clothing fabrics, knitted underwear, bedding, medical sanitary products, decorative daily necessities, etc. The leggings made with it are called “the second skin on the legs”.
