In the glove OEM industry, the requirements of fabrics are closely related to the role of gloves. But generally speaking, high-quality and high-end fabrics have the characteristics of comfortable wearing, sweat-absorbing and breathable, stiff drape, noble vision, and soft touch. Below, we will briefly introduce the characteristics of common glove fabrics.
1. Cotton cloth
Cotton cloth is the general term for all kinds of cotton textiles. It is mostly used to make warm gloves. Its advantages are easy to keep warm, soft and close-fitting, moisture absorption, and good air permeability. Its disadvantage is that it is easy to shrink and wrinkle.
Silk is a general term for all kinds of silk fabrics woven from silk as raw material. Like cotton, it has many varieties and different personalities. It can be used to make all kinds of gloves, especially suitable for making ladies’ gloves. Its strengths are lightness, fit, softness, smoothness, breathability, brilliant colors, luster, elegance, and comfort. Its shortcomings are that it is prone to wrinkles, easy to suck, not strong enough, and fades faster.
Hemp cloth is a cloth made of hemp, flax, ramie, jute, sisal, abaca and other hemp plant fibers. Use it to make outdoor gloves and labor protection gloves. Its advantages are extremely high strength, moisture absorption, heat conduction, and good air permeability. Its disadvantage is that it is not very comfortable to wear, and its appearance is rough and stiff.
4. Woolen cloth
Woolen cloth, also called wool, is a general term for fabrics woven from various types of wool and cashmere. It is usually suitable for warm gloves and labor protection gloves. Its advantages are anti-wrinkle and abrasion resistance, soft hand feel, elegant and crisp, full of elasticity, and strong warmth retention. Its main disadvantage is that it is more difficult to wash.
Leather is an animal fur fabric that has been tanned. It is mostly used to make leather gloves. It can be divided into two categories: one is leather, that is, leather that has been dehaired. The second is fur, that is, treated leather with belt hair. Its advantages are lightness and warmth, grace and luxury. Its disadvantage is that it is expensive and requires higher storage and care.
6. Chemical fiber
Chemical fiber is an abbreviation for chemical fiber. It is a textile made of fibers using polymer compounds as raw materials. Usually it is divided into two categories: artificial fibers and synthetic fibers. Their common advantages are bright colors, soft texture, crisp drape, smoothness and comfort. Their disadvantages are poor wear resistance, heat resistance, moisture absorption, and air permeability, and are easily deformed when exposed to heat, and they are prone to static electricity. Although it can be used to make all kinds of gloves, but the overall grade is not high, it is difficult to be elegant.
Blended spinning is a fabric made by blending natural fibers and chemical fibers in a certain ratio, which can be used to make various gloves. Its strength is that it not only absorbs the advantages of cotton, linen, silk, wool and chemical fiber, but also avoids their respective shortcomings as much as possible, and is relatively inexpensive in value, so it is very popular.
