What it is made from? It is ..... 60% cotton and 40% polyester fleece.
Manufacturing Process • Cotton • Cotton is a natural fibre that comes from a cotton plant • The cotton plant has flowers which become cotton bolls • Cotton bolls are harvested by machines • Cotton is separated and pressed into bails • Cotton is then ready to be blended with polyester • Or processed into yarn and then fabric
Manufacturing Process • Polyester Fleece • Polyester is made from chemical called polymer • Polymer liquid is forced through tiny holes in a metal disc and it becomes strings on contact with air • Polyester is then baled • The bails are then made into yarns • The yarns are now ready to be knitted into fabric by a knitting machine • The fabric is then sprayed with a waterproof material
Manufacturing Process • Blending cotton and polyester • Both polyester and cotton bobbins are brought to an upright machine called a tablet weaver. • The weaver causes the different threads to twist together after being drawn to create a single thread • The finished cotton-poly bobbin is then sent to a loom to be woven into cloth.
My Jacket • I think my jacket is made by sewing cotton fabric together with polyester fabric • Other cotton polyester jackets can also be made by blending the cotton yarn with a polyester yarn and then woven into a cloth
