Sweater Fabric

Fabric in a sweater plays an important role in determining the quality of warmth, comfort, elasticity, durability and other aspects. Let’s get into the different types of sweater fabrics available in India.

However, if you need really warm cotton sweaters then the fabric has to be high quality cotton. Moreover, if these get wet then they remain wet for a long time compared to wool which dries quickly.

Polyester

Polyester sweaters are cheap, but have some drawbacks. After various washes, you might find it to start loosening its shape. Also, its heat retention capacity is very less which means that wearing a polyester sweater is equal to wearing a thick t-shirt.
